Congresswoman Ilhan Omar turned and walked away from CNN’s Manu Raju as he asked her why she supported the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement Tuesday afternoon.

The movement calls for for companies and groups to protest and penalize the state of Israel over its treatment of the Palestinian people. The official BDS movement website describes the movement as one trying to uphold “the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.”

“It is really important for us to get a different lens about what peace in that region could look like and the kind of difficult conversations we need to have about allies,” Omar said.
