Senator Josh Hawley engaged in a heated confrontation with Code Pink protesters over his support for Israel.

He defended Israel’s right to self-defense and accused the protesters of being “pro-terrorist” and wanting a “second Holocaust.”

“Don’t give us your talking points,” one protester said. “Bulls—, you are unbelievable.”

“The state of Israel has the right to defend itself,” Hawley said.

The senator also called for an investigation into the funding of student groups supporting Hamas, following a joint statement from Harvard University students blaming Israel for violence.

“Here’s my message to anyone saying Israel doesn’t have a right to defend itself: you are pro-terrorist,” Hawley said.

Hawley’s remarks have sparked controversy and highlighted the ongoing debate surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and support for Hamas on college campuses.

“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.”

“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.”
