Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY) slammed antisemitic Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) Monday for her stance on America’s aid to Israel after Hamas terrorists invaded its territory Saturday.
“Israel was just brutally attacked by terrorists, funded by Iran, and you want to cut off funding and military aid and equipment,” Lawler wrote on social media when he shared Omar’s post. “You are out of your mind and unfit to serve in the House of Representatives. This is why you were removed from the Foreign Affairs committee.”
In her post on Monday afternoon, Omar said, “Instead of continuing unconditional weapons sales and military aid to Israel, I urge the United States at long last to use its diplomatic might to push for peace.”
Social media users were quick to reply to her comments, with one person writing, “Team Jihad is stepping up to protect Hamas, I see.”
“The only pushing should be pushing you out of office,” another user wrote, while someone else said, “I urge you to shut up.”
