Washington, D.C.—Shortly after votes were cast in the House Chamber on Tuesday, The Floridian caught up with conservative  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who has become a large moving target for Democrats over her firm support for President Donald Trump and who had a lot to say about Palestine and her Democrat colleagues in the now-infamous “Squad,” who she refers to as, the “Jihad Squad.”

Rep. Greene asserted that members of the “Jihad Squad” have and continue to endorse Hamas.

The Floridian– What do you make of the ‘Squad’, particularly Ilhan Omar, backing Palestine?

Greene– You mean the Jihad Squad? They’re supporting terrorism against Israel by supporting Hamas.

The Floridian– So are you in support of Biden’s proposal to give roughly $700 million in aid to Israel?

Greene– I haven’t read the plan, but I am completely against United States members of Congress supporting terrorism abroad and here at home.  And they support ANTIFA, BLM riots, all kinds of riots against police officers.  They vote to defund the police and then they support Hamas terrorism, which is bombing Israel.  So I am completely opposed to the Jihad Squad, and everything they stand for.

The Floridian– So do you believe when Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar stand up for Palestine, it is an indirect endorsement of Hamas?

Greene– They are absolutely endorsing Hamas, you know they are, they are absolutely endorsing Hamas.

Earlier this week Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a member of the ‘Squad’ referred to Israel as an “apartheid state,” echoing the rhetoric of her colleagues Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who according to Greene, have endorsed terrorist organization Hamas.

The U.S. Congress has largely denounced the daily terrorist attacks against Israel that Hamas has been conducting by firing indiscriminately into Israeli territories in hopes to inflict as much destruction and bloodshed as possible.
