The Jews overwhelmingly supported former President Barack Obama, a Democrat and anti-America, anti-Israel anti-Semite.
The Jews overwhelmingly supported President Joseph Biden, a Democrat long known as a corrupt bigot willing to sell out the American people to our enemies.
The Jews overwhelmingly condemned former President Donald Trump, a Republican with an orthodox Jewish daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren. The man who ignored the anti-Semites in the State Department to move our Embassy to Jerusalem. The man who ignored the anti-Semites and brought a measure of peace to the Middle East with his Abraham Accords. A man who defunded aid to terrorists and terrorist sympathizers and held Iran, a known state sponsor of anti-Jew terrorism in the world, in check.
And now, after one of the most horrific terrorist attacks against Jews and the largest loss of life in Israel’s history, we find the Democrat Party riddled with anti-Semites who refuse to vote for a resolution that would’ve backed Israel and condemned the militant group Hamas’ attack against Israel on October 7th.
H.Res.771 - Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists.
Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists.
Whereas on October 7th, 2023, Hamas terrorists launched a massive, unprovoked war on Israel by air, land, and sea, including firing thousands of rockets;
Whereas this heinous assault took place just after the 50th anniversary of the start of the multi-front 1973 Yom Kippur War against Israel;
Whereas Hamas terrorists crossed the land border and began slaughtering Israelis and abducting hostages in towns in southern Israel, including children and the elderly;
Whereas since October 7th, 2023, Hamas launched over 4,500 rockets into southern and central Israel;
Whereas since October 7th, 2023, Hamas terrorists have killed over 900 Israelis and injured more than 2,600 others;
Whereas at least 11 United States citizens in Israel are among those killed by Hamas since October 7th, 2023;
Whereas since October 7th, 2023, Hamas is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Palestinians;
Whereas the expansion of this war to other fronts by Hezbollah, Iran, or others would create an even more devastating regional catastrophe;
Whereas Hamas is a United States-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization;
Whereas Iran has long provided support to Hamas and other terrorist groups and proxies, and prior United States Government unclassified assessments indicated that,
Whereas Hamas used rudimentary, civilian equipment, such as bulldozers, paragliders, and rubber boats in its assault on Israel, demonstrating the importance of fully enforcing tight controls on what materials go into the Gaza Strip, including through thorough vetting of assistance;
Whereas under the 2016 U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding, the United States pledged to provide Israel $3.3 billion per year in Foreign Military Financing Program assistance and $500 million per year in missile defense for 10 years, which Congress has appropriated annually;
Whereas section 1273 of the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 authorized not less than $3.3 billion in Foreign Military Financing Program assistance for Israel for each of the fiscal years 2021 through 2028, in accordance with the 2016 U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding;
Whereas Congress has responded with additional appropriations beyond the terms of the 2016 U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding as needed, including in March 2022 when Congress appropriated an additional $1 billion for Iron Dome defense system after the May 2021 conflict in which Hamas launched more than 4,400 rockets at Israel; and
Whereas Israel is a major non-NATO ally and Major Strategic Partner of the United States: Now, therefore, be it
That the House of Representatives—
It should come as no surprise that nine Democrats voted against the measure.
- Rashida Tlaib (Michigan)
- Cori Bush (Missouri)
- Jamaal Bowman (New York)
- Andre Carson (Indiana)
- Al Green (Texas)
- Summer Lee (Pennsylvania)
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York)
- Ilhan Omar (Minnesota)
- Delia Ramirez (Illinois)
And that six Democrats voted “Present.”
- Gregorio Casar (Texas)
- Joaquin Castro (Texas)
- Jesús "Chuy" García (Illinois)
- Pramila Jayapal (Washington)
- Ayanna Pressley (Massachusetts)
- Nydia Velázquez (New York)
The sole Republican to vote against the measure was Thomas Massie (Kentucky), an anti-interventionist like Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
I condemn the barbaric attack on Israel and I affirm Israel’s right to defend itself.
However, I will not be voting for House Resolution 771 today because: 1) It calls for sanctions on a sovereign country. Sanctions are a prelude to war and hurt the citizens of the country more than the government of the country that’s being sanctioned. And ultimately, sanctions create laws that will be used to prosecute American citizens (who engage in trade), not citizens of the sanctioned country. In short, sanctions do not achieve their stated purposes but do breed resentment of our country abroad. 2) It asserts the necessity of foreign aid commitments which I have voted against. Our country is going bankrupt and we can’t afford to borrow money to send overseas, yet this resolution states that we should. 3) It contains an open-ended promise of military support that is so broad that it could be interpreted to commit US soldiers to the conflict. US troops should not be engaged in this conflict. 4) It tends to broaden the conflict to other countries when it would be better to keep the war contained geographically. <Source>
Modern-day terrorist sympathizers who highlight the moral bankruptcy of the Democrat Party.
The Democrat Party is both anti-America and anti-Israel.
We are so screwed.
