The visit, posted on X, came as the deadline is quickly approaching for the university and protesters to reach an agreement on ending the encampment.


The radical Muslim “Squad” member and daughter Isra Hirsi, 21, posed for photos and cheered protesters who had put up dozens of illegal tents on campus.

The congresswoman tweeted a video of the meeting, saying that she was in “awe” of the student activists’ “bravery and courage.”

“I had the honor of seeing the Columbia University anti-war encampment firsthand,” Omar wrote. “Contrary to right-wing attacks, these students are joyfully protesting for peace and an end to the genocide taking place in Gaza,” she said.

One protester with a yarmulka and a mask was seen in the video greeting Omar.

Hirsi was one of more than 100 protesters arrested at the Gaza Solidarity Encampment on the Morningside Heights campus last Thursday.

She and at least two other students were suspended from Barnard for their participation in the unauthorized protest.

Hirsi complained that she was kicked out of her dorm and banned from campus for participating in the protest after administrators warned students to leave.

Columbia officials said they have tightly controlled access to campus, so it’s unclear how Hirsi was allowed back.

Omar wrote on X that she was “enormously proud” of her daughter.

According to the NY Post, about 20 ‘Orthodox’ Jews joined the protests and denounced Zionism.
