House Dems Reject Measure To Boost Israeli Security Aid
GOP attempted to secure funding for Israel’s Iron Dome as war rages
By Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, May 20, 2021:
House Democrats on Thursday voted against a measure to provide Israel with emergency funding for its Iron Dome missile defense system, which destroys terrorist rockets before they land, saving scores of lives as Israel continues to fight against Palestinian terror groups.
In a vote of 218-209, Democrats rejected a security funding amendment offered by Rep. Tony Gonzales (R., Texas). The measure would have paved the way for Israel to receive a tranche of emergency dollars specifically for missile defense, which has proven critical as Iranian-backed terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad target Israeli citizens. One Republican, Rep. Thomas Massie (Ky.), voted with Democrats against the measure.
“We need to show [Israel] we believe in their right to defend themselves, and the United States will do everything in our power to ensure they defeat these terrorist and any attacks by Iran,” Gonzalez said on the House floor ahead of the vote. “Will my Democrat colleagues choose to stand with Israel or will they cower to the Iranian proxies?”
The Democrat-controlled House’s rejection of the security amendment came just days after a Republican bid to sanction Hamas was shut down. On Tuesday, Democrats rejected a bid by House Republicans to hold a vote on Hamas sanctions legislation that would have cut off the group’s funding sources.
Both votes were championed by Republicans seeking to bolster the Jewish state in its time of war. Democrats, however, have been divided on the issue. While the party’s leadership has expressed support for Israel’s right to defend itself, far-left, anti-Israel voices such as Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) are pressuring their colleagues to cut U.S. aid and even sanction Israel for what they claim are war crimes in the Gaza Strip.
