House Democrats Defund Israel Iron Dome

Led by the progressive wing, House Democrats removed a funding provision for Israel’s Iron Dome.

The Iron Dome is the missile defense system Israel uses to protect its citizens from attacks from Hamas.

The measure was eliminated so the House could move forward with a temporary funding bill to keep the government operating.

Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) backed the effort to deny funding of the Iron Dome.

Fox News discussed the anti-Israel effort.

Democrats were slammed on social media for caving to progressives in their party.

Republican Senate Ohio candidate Josh Mandel called the progressive Democrats “JEW HATERS.”

Ocasio-Cortez also wants to block military sales to Israel – a topic discussed on Newsmax’s National Report on Monday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) allowed the anti-Israel measure to pass showing she will not oppose the most radical members of the House of Representatives.

Looking back, they seem to get along together just fine.

Rolling Stone magazine cover story in 2019 featured Pelosi and two of the most hostile anti-Israel members in the House of Representatives in its “Women Shaping the Future” feature.

The last thing the U.S. needs to do is turn our back on another ally following the disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan.

While Democrats claim the defunding to the Iron Dome is temporary, it does show there is a strong anti-Israel movement in the Democrat Party.
