Anti-Israel “Progressives” Continue to Embolden Terrorists

6 0 0

The recent call to strip Iron Dome funding from the continuing resolution was another outrageous political stunt by the same vocal chorus of anti-Israel members of Congress who continue to seize any moment to vilify the Jewish state. Instead of leveraging this moment to help their constituents, they emboldened terrorist groups and directly undermined global security – actions that must be strongly condemned and never allowed to happen again.

The Squad and their anti-Israel allies in the U.S. House of Representatives threatened to hold hostage a must-pass funding bill needed to keep the government open unless Democratic leaders stripped out the $1 billion in emergency funding to allow Israel to restock its Iron Dome system. In May, Hamas – a terror organization that seeks the destruction of Israel and abuses its own people – fired more than 4,000 rockets into Israel. The Iron Dome stopped many of those terror rockets, preventing countless deaths and injuries. With Iron Dome in place, Israel can absorb more rockets before it is compelled to respond with military force to stop rocket attacks. Iron Dome saves both Israeli and Palestinian lives.

After just witnessing the life-saving importance of this incredible technology, the overwhelming majority of Congress and the Biden administration supported replenishing Iron Dome, to ensure Israel can defend itself the next time Hamas or other terrorist proxy groups like Hezbollah strike Israel. But the small group of anti-Israel members of Congress instead thought we should hold back this funding, giving Hamas the advantage next time by letting incoming terrorist attacks hit more targets in Israel and kill more innocent people.

So it’s mind-boggling to try to understand why........
