Candace Owens fired a joke that will surely raise the ire of the left. She went after Ilhan Omar, as did many in the GOP, after Omar seemed to side with the people shooting rockets into Israel and killing civilians rather than with our allies.
Look, the situation is complicated over there and Trump has a plan - it seems many are on board with the plan with the notable exception of certain groups associated with terrorists that thrive on the chaos.
We will never abandon Israel and the reality of geopolitics is that the stronger of two negotiating parties gets the better deal. That is human nature, so Ilhan and the rest should acknowledge this reality and work with the Palestinians to get on board with the peace plan rather than oppose it.
From Newsweek: Conservative commentator and activist Candace Owens has taken a swipe at Representative Ilhan Omar’s criticism of the latest surge in violence in the Gaza Strip.
A ceasefire agreement has been reached between Palestinians and Israel, whose Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered strikes on Gaza after fighters in the enclave fired rockets into southern Israel.
The violence led to the deaths of at least 25 Palestinians and four Israelis, al Jazeera reported. In the wake of the violence, the Somali-born Minnesota representative directed her anger at Israel.
She wrote: “How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?
“The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”
Owens took exception to this, and retweeted the Congresswoman’s message, with a direct comment to Omar and the Democrats.
She tweeted: “In her defense, supporting terrorists in the Middle East seems to me to be the next logical step for a party that defends MS-13, demands open borders, and hates Jewish people and babies.”
She then added: “Separately, how funny if Trump just deported her?” Newsweek has contacted Omar’s communications director for comment.
Omar’s tweet on Monday also raised the ire of Trump’s son, Donald Trump Junior who said that it was “deeply troubling that we’ve reached the point where no one is shocked when sitting members of congress, like @IlhanMN & @RashidaTlaib, side with Hamas terrorists over Israel.”
“By remaining silent, democrat leadership & presidential candidates are endorsing this insanity,” he added.
In her defense, supporting terrorists in the Middle East seems to me to be the next logical step for a party that defends MS-13, demands open borders, and hates Jewish people and babies.
