On Friday, when asked about the recent terrorist attacks in Israel by a reporter, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who has a long history of anti-Semitism and displaying support for terrorists, refused to give a straight answer.
The inquiry was raised following Omar’s last week promotion of false terrorist claims that Israel had destroyed a hospital, killing 500 people.
The real story emerged several hours later: Far fewer people were killed than the Palestinians initially reported when a rocket fired by terrorists from Palestine detonated in the hospital parking lot.
“Do you think that Israel should just lay down their arms and not try to get the hostages out of Gaza?” Vaughn asked.
Omar remained silent.
“How can Israel have a ceasefire with terrorists whose entire mission is to wipe out their existence?” Vaughn asked again.
Omar continued to not answer the question.
Omar attempted to appear as though she was retracting her statement after receiving harsh criticism this week for endorsing false claims made by Hamas by speculating that she might not have even written the post on her personal account and blaming the outlet that produced the report she promoted.
