Squad Member Among Anti Israel College Camp, Rips Into Police!

(FeaturedHeadlines.com) Progressive firebrand Ilhan Omar visited University of Columbia with her daughter and met with pro-Palestinian protesters who have disrupted the decorum of the college by establishing anti-Israel encampments.

Omar’s daughter, Isra Hirsi, was recently arrested alongside hundreds of other activists who demonstrated against Israel. Hirsi was also suspended from Barnard College, after which she claimed that she was homeless and hungry, and that she did not know when she would be able to return to her home.

After visiting the campus, Omar posted on the social media website X and praised the courage and bravery of the protesters. She stated that students at Columbia University are peacefully protesting to end the war in Gaza.

Just a day before Omar’s visit, House Speaker Mike Johnson also visited Columbia University and condemned the protests that have marred educational institutions across the country. Johnson questioned the ability of protesters to lead the United States in times to come, adding that these demonstrations have put the security of Jewish students at risk.

He also called for the resignation of Columbia University President Minouche Shafik if she is unable to control the protests. The House Speaker threatened to stop the funding for public colleges that are unable to protect their Jewish students.

Days before visiting Columbia University, Omar also went to the University of Minnesota and praised pro-Palestinian protesters, claiming that these brave souls are putting themselves at risk while calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. She added that the anti-Israel demonstrations that started with the help of only seventy students have turned into a countrywide movement.

Omar’s fellow Squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also praised the pro-Palestinian protests in colleges.

AOC slammed the Columbia University administration for bringing the anti-terrorism unit of the NYPD to curb the protests.

In response to AOC’s remarks, NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell stated that the troubling students will face the consequences of their actions and that a good academic record does not place students above the law.
