Greene Slams Omar And The Squad Over Defense Of Hamas, Says Terrorist Supporters Don’t Belong In Congress

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene referred to congressional Democrats known as the “Squad” as the “Jihad Squad” and said they don’t belong in Congress due to their recent defense of Hamas.

“The Jihad Squad, @IlhanMN @RashidaTlaib @AOC doesn’t think Israel has the right to defend itself from terrorists Hamas when they fire rockets into Israel,” the Georgia Republican tweeted Monday. “They also support terrorists Antifa/BLM who attack Americans. Members who support terrorism don’t belong in Congress.”

Republicans, and supporters of Israel, have taken issue with the comments from the “Squad,” including Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who accused Omar of serving as “press secretary” for Hamas

The Squad has been widely criticized by conservatives over the last few days after members of the group slammed Israel’s response to rocket attacks from Hamas.

“Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism,” Omar tweeted Monday. “Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid.”

Omar’s tweet came in response to Palestinian claims that 20 Palestinians, including nine children, were killed by Israeli airstrikes. The report Omar cited omitted Israel’s claim that the airstrikes were targeting militants who fired missiles into Israel and that 11 Hamas terrorists were reportedly killed.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, also members of the Squad, joined in on Omar’s defense of Hamas’s actions.

Republicans, and supporters of Israel, have taken issue with the comments from the “Squad,” including Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who accused Omar of serving as “press secretary” for Hamas.
