Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) went off during a press conference over Israel killing Hamas terrorists in response to the October 7 massacre of more than 1,400 Israeli citizens.
The Democrat congresswoman has a long history of making antisemitic remarks and expressing sympathy for terrorists — even pushing Hamas propaganda earlier this week claiming that an explosion at a hospital in Gaza was due to an Israeli missile strike. Omar later tried to walk back her comments after she was criticized — as numerous reports confirmed that the hospital was still standing and the damage was actually done by a Hamas rocket misfire.
In her latest attempt to defend terrorists, Omar exploded into a fit of rage outside the U.S. Capitol on Friday — where she demanded a ceasefire from Israel while not making the same demands of Hamas terrorists in Palestine, who are continuing to fire rockets at Israel as the Jewish state tries to root out terrorists in Gaza.
“Israel has dropped more bombs in last 10 days than we dropped in a whole year in Afghanistan!” Omar shouted. “Where is your humanity?! Where is your outreach?! Where is your care for people?!”

The Democrat congresswoman went on to attack her fellow Democrats, who had condemned statements made by Omar and other far-left lawmakers demonizing Israel.
“I want to say how insane and painful and scary it is to work and serve in a space where we have a member in our caucus say all Muslims are responsible for this, and not a single condemnation comes from our caucus leadership or any member of Congress,” Omar said.
“How is it that we are serving in a body, serving in a body where there are members who condemn us for asking for peace, for ceasefire, the most simplest thing?”
As reporters began asking lawmakers questions during the press conference, one far-left lawmaker attempted to stop a reporter from asking why they were demanding Israel stop their quest to eliminate terrorists who had murdered, tortured and kidnapped Israeli civilians — including women and children.
Omar’s response to the question was to scream at the reporter, going off on a shocking rant where she tried to suggest that Israel was targeting “the people of Gaza” rather than terrorists.
“How many more killings is enough for you?! Is it a thousand more?! Two thousand more?! Three thousand more?! How many more Palestinians would make you happy if they died?!” Omar yelled. “Will you be fine if all of the people of Gaza were gone?! Would that make you happy?! Would that be the thing that makes you proud?!”
“And maybe that’s the question you should ask Ritchie, is he okay?!” she added, referring to Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY). “How many more Palestinian lives is he comfortable with?! Because I am not comfortable with any more!”
