Imagine being an Israeli right now and reading about how representatives in your biggest ally’s government are ACTIVELY working to put you and your family at risk.
How would you feel towards those people?
How would feel towards the country that they represent? A country that is supposed to have your back as you defend yourself and democracy from people who have sworn to wipe you and your nation off the face of the earth?
I’m sure you’d feel a certain way…
Maybe not towards the country itself, but certainly towards the people in charge of the government.
Think about it…
The only democracy in the Middle East, the only Jewish state on the planet, has gone from working with one of the most pro-Israel administrations of all time under Donald Trump to arguably the most anti-Israel administration since Barack Obama.
They’ve gone from dealing with a guy that was ready to go to war with anyone who looked at Israel crossways to a guy that is asking for a ceasefire while they’re still being bombarded with missiles.
It must seem like a bad dream.
Of course, the dream gets worse upon the announcement that there are representatives in the US legislature that are actively trying to ensure that Israel can’t defend itself from threats going forward.
This is what’s happening to Israel right now.
While Sleepy Joe Biden is encouraging the aggressions of terrorists by asking Israel for a ceasefire, members of the Squad in Congress are filing a resolution to revoke Israel’s ability to defend itself at all.
An Unforgivable Betrayal
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced a resolution to block the sale of $735 million in precision-guided bombs to Israel, even while Hamas terrorists continue to fire barrages of rockets towards Israeli civilians.
The arms deal was arranged before the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, with the contents containing “Joint Direct Attack Munition variants and Small Diameter Bomb Increment I variants,” both of which are designed to be fired from the air to hit targets on the ground.
The Small Diameter Bomb Increment is specifically designed to “decrease collateral damage,” which lowers the risks to innocent civilians who are unfortunately caught in the crossfire.
Luckily, the Biden administration approved the sale earlier this week, and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Rep. Gregory Meeks, who had considered objecting to it, relented on Tuesday and allowed the deal to proceed without a delay.
However, just because one Democrat uses logic to see that Israel is not the aggressor in the situation does not mean that intelligence has suddenly infected the party.
The members of the Squad, ALL of whom been hostile to Israel since arriving on the political scene in 2018, are actively trying to block the sale—and they’re putting Israeli lives at risk.
AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Mark Pocan of Wisconsin have been disparaging Israel’s efforts to defend itself by targeting Hamas strongholds in the West Bank.
This has been highlighted by Ocasio-Cortez making SEVERAL false accusations against Israel, including the claim that they are targeting civilians.
This idiot tweeted out, “The United States should not be rubber-stamping weapons sales to the Israeli government as they deploy our resources to target international media outlets, schools, hospitals, humanitarian missions and civilian sites for bombing. We have a responsibility to protect human rights.”

Obviously, she said absolutely NOTHING about the fact that Hamas is targeting Israeli civilians while also deliberately storing and firing rockets from densely-populated areas, using hospitals and schools as cover from retaliation.
Hamas KNOWS it’s putting civilian lives at risk—and they don’t care.
Hamas is so inept, they’re killing their own people.
In a recent report, the Israeli military said that roughly 20% of Hamas’ rockets fall in Palestinian areas inside Gaza, not Israel.
Hopefully, the Squad’s resolution will be nothing more than symbolic.
The last thing we need is to leave our best ally in the Middle East vulnerable to attacks from their enemies.
However, in today’s Liberal-dominated atmosphere, stranger things have happened.
God bless and protect Israel…
“The biggest danger for any organism is to not identify that it’s being threatened. I want to hope that people realize that the source of danger and risk in the Middle East is not the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but the deep radical Islamic vision of forming a global caliphate.” – Naftali Bennett
