Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) refused to answer a Fox News reporter’s questions about how Israel should react after over 1,300 of its citizens were slaughtered by Hamas terrorists.
The “Squad” member, who has been among the most vocal of left-wing Democrats in attacking the Jewish state for defending itself against those who want to see it destroyed, rarely passes up an opportunity to spew anti-Semitism but declined to comment to reporter Hillary Vaughn who she mocked as a “crazy lady” when confronted at the Capitol.
The Somali-born congresswoman who is demanding a ceasefire in Gaza and has spent the last two weeks since the attack on Israeli civilians acting as a de facto spokeswoman for Hamas was tight-lipped when confronted over her stance toward America’s critical Middle East ally.
REPORTER (@hillary__vaughn): “Are you okay with Hamas terrorists continuing to exist? … How can Israel have a ceasefire with terrorists whose entire mission is to wipe out their existence?”

“Congresswoman, you have called for a ceasefire — are you okay with Hamas terrorists continuing to exist?” Vaughn asked after catching up with the left-wing lawmaker on Friday.
“Do you think that Israel should just lay down their arms and not try to get the hostages out of Gaza?” Vaughn persisted as Omar continued walking, not acknowledging her presence. “How can Israel have a cease-fire with terrorists whose entire mission is to wipe out their existence?”
“How can Israel have a ceasefire with terrorists whose entire mission is to wipe out their existence?” Vaughn asked as the Jew-hating Democrat got into an elevator. “How can they have a ceasefire if they’re trying to wipe out…”
“Ignore this crazy lady, don’t worry about her,” Omar said as the elevator doors closed, sparing her from having to answer the tough questions.
Vaughn didn’t have any better luck with the Minnesota Muslim than she did with her fellow “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) whom she tried to get an answer from on the atrocities committed by the Hamas savages, including barbaric acts against women and children at the Capitol earlier last week.
“Do you condone what Hamas has done, chopping off babies’ heads, burning children alive, raping women in the street?” Vaughn asked.

Vaughn discussed her attempt to get the congresswoman to go on record over what Israel’s response should be on Friday’s edition of “Varney & Company” on Fox Business.

“We didn’t really didn’t get any new comments or guidance from her on what she hopes to see after a ceasefire, if there would be any hope of getting the hostages out of Gaza and what that would look like for Israel’s defenses,” she said.
“Would they have a guarantee that Hamas would never attack them again, but we didn’t get any further explanation from the congresswoman but we’ll keep trying,” added Vaughn.
