Republican Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) was confronted by anti-Israel protesters who warned the Missouri lawmaker that “Hamas will never be eliminated.”
However, rather than bow down and grovel before the angry mob, Hawley stood his ground and instantly turned the tables on the pro-Hamas crowd.
Hawley was confronted on Wednesday by far-Left Code Pink protesters over his support for Israel.
Hawley told the protesters that they were “pro-terrorist” and, if they had it their way, would usher in a “second Holocaust.”
“Don’t give us your talking points,” one female protester yelled at Hawley.
“Bulls**t, you are unbelievable,” she slurred and the senator tried to speak to the crowd.
“The state of Israel has the right to defend itself,” the senator responded.
The same protester told Hawley that what Israel is doing is “not defense” and demanded a “ceasefire.”
Code Pink’s website calls for a “Ceasefire in Gaza…to end Israel’s ongoing genocide.”
On October 7, Hamas terrorists carried out brutal attacks in Israel, killing about 1,200 people.
The terrorist group also took hundreds of hostages back to Gaza.
They also murdered and raped hundreds more innocent people, including children.
Earlier this week, reports indicated that over 20 percent of the almost 140 hostages remaining in Gaza are dead.
Hawley told a protester that he would not call for a “ceasefire” until “Hamas is eliminated.”
“Hamas will never be eliminated,” the swaying leftist responded.
The senator suggested the protester was “anti-Semitic.”
“If you guys had your way, there’d be a second Holocaust, that’s what you want. Pro-terrorist.”
Hawley posted the confrontation to X.
“Here’s my message to anyone saying Israel doesn’t have a right to defend itself: you are pro-terrorist,” he captioned the video.

Following the terror attacks, elite college campuses erupted with support for Hamas.
Rather than condemn the acts of terrorism, many on the Left have sought to blame Israel for the attacks.
Notably, a joint statement from dozens of groups of Harvard University students blamed Israel for the violence and atrocities committed by Hamas.
“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups on the Situation in Palestine wrote.
“Today’s events did not occur in a vacuum. …
“The apartheid regime is the only one to blame.”
In response, Hawley suggested the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigate who’s funding such protests, as Slay News reported.
“What I want to know is who’s funding these student groups,” Hawley said.
“I hope the DOJ is investigating where the money is coming from. Are there terror groups who are part of these networks who are infiltrating our campuses?
“This is crazy stuff that we’re seeing on these campuses, and for these administrators to have their hand out and take federal money, taxpayer money, and (on) the same dime be silent or silently condone this kind of terrorism, it is just grotesque.”
