A Florida State Republican lawmaker sparked outrage by calling for all Palestinians to die.

Florida State Rep. Michelle Salzman openly called for the genocide of all Palestinians on Thursday, during a debate in the state legislature about calling for a ceasefire in Israel’s invasion of Gaza.

In the speech in support of the ceasefire resolution, the Democratic Florida state representative Angie Nixon said: “We are at 10,000 dead Palestinians. How many will be enough?”

“All of them,” Michelle Salzman called in reply.

“One of my colleagues just said, ‘All of them.’ Wow,” Nixon said, acknowledging the interruption. 

The Florida state house voted 104-2 to reject Nixon’s resolution.

Salzman’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (Cair-Florida) – the US’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization – said in a statement that Salzman’s remarks were a “chilling call for genocide” and a “direct result of decades of dehumanization of the Palestinian people by advocates of Israeli apartheid and their eager enablers in government and the media”.

Israel has, thus far, killed over 11,078 – including 4,506 children and 3,027 women – and wounded 27,409. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

  1. She needs to be arrested, fired, and questioned,.She has Palestinian constiuents in her district,. Are they NOT at risk?,.She wants them ALL Dead,.She SAID IT,.If she isn’t,.then every other race Knows they are seconday citizens in this country~PERIOD~

    • I agree completely, Paul. God make her utter her inner mind unconsciously. Now we know everyone need to take distance whenever they meet her in the streets, when she’s not arrested yet.

  2. It’s standard procedure for American leaders to forment racial hatred – Biden doing it resulted in a Muslim American child being murdered a few weeks ago, and in the aftermath of 9/11, there were plenty of attacks on Muslims and Arabs, or people thought to be, like Sikhs.
    Biden has blood on his hands, and US imperialism is the problem.

  3. Curse Michelle Saltzman. She should be taken to a besieged Gaza hospital and see if she survives the Zionist indescriminate bombing. What a racist fascist idiot.

  4. I would be ashamed to call myself American.
    Cowardly disgusting excuse for a human being.
    Why hasn’t she been arrested?
