(UnitedVoice.com) – Israel and Palestine are involved in one of the worst conflicts the world has seen between them in a long time. At least 35 people are dead and hundreds have been injured. Hamas, a terrorist group based in Palestine, has launched rockets into Israel. In response, the Israel Defense Force has responded with force.
Just moments before terrorists in Gaza tried to fire rockets toward Israeli civilians, our aircraft struck & destroyed their 2 rocket launchers, stopping them in their tracks.
We will respond with force as needed. pic.twitter.com/6dIt9ww6SN

In response to the conflict, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has spent days attacking Israel on Twitter. On May 10, she accused the US ally of terrorism because it had the audacity to respond to force using force.
Israeli air strikes 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 to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid. https://t.co/vWWQfMqBkT

Conservatives slammed Omar and other Democrats for attacking Israel. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called the congresswoman the “press secretary for Hamas.” It’s absurd that the congresswoman is spreading misinformation about an ongoing conflict involving a US ally. Sadly, it isn’t surprising. Omar has made a number of anti-semitic remarks over the years, this seems par for the course with her.
