Ilhan Omar Is Carrying Out Air Strikes In Self Defense Against Hamas And Gaza Strip
Hello, and welcome to ATP's Really Dumb Things They Said. I'm Barry Nussbaum. Radical representative Ilhan Omar is out of her mind, according to a senator, for attacking Israel for committing an act of terrorism. Why?
‘Well, because they're carrying out airstrikes in self-defense against Hamas in the Gaza Strip,’ Marco Rubio responded.
Now, as the world knows, after Hamas and other Islamic terror organizations in Gaza started launching what now is over 3,000 rockets into Israel, targeting cities including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and civilians everywhere. Israel struck back with the Air Force attacks on the rocket launchers, the builders of the rockets, and the terrorists behind them.
Here's the incredibly dumb response from a real American congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, "Israeli airstrikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs such as Iron Dome don't exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It's unconscionable not to condemn these attacks on the week of Eid”.
Now the brilliant response from Senator Marco Rubio:
"Number one, the Iron Dome wouldn't need to exist if it wasn't for Hamas and Hezbollah. The reason it exists is that these terrorists have rockets, and they use them to try to kill Israelis. That's why it exists. Number two, the only response you've seen from Israel is in response to these attacks. They live in a very tough neighborhood. They've made it abundantly clear if you hit us, we're going to hit you back five times harder, and Hamas knows that. This is a plan, okay."
"They do this knowing there's going to be a response, knowing that innocents are going to be killed, and civilians are going to be killed. They know it's going to happen, and they deliberately want it to happen so that they can get tweets like that, and people around the world take up their cause,".
Incredibly dumb statement by Omar, however, a brilliant response by Senator Marco Rubio. Way to go, Senator Rubio.
