Wonderful news - Israel and "The Squad"

| No Comments

Looks like it is the squad going down in flames, not Israel. From the London Daily Mail:

AOC bursts into tears as Iron Dome's $1bn funding is OVERWHELMINGLY approved in House 420-9: Rashida Tlaib is accused of anti-Semitism by fellow Dem after she called Israel a 'violent apartheid system'

    • The House passed the Iron Dome bill in an overwhelming 420 to 9 majority
    • Rep. Rashida Tlaib went after the bill because its text expresses a US endorsement of the Israeli military's rocket campaign against Gaza in May
    • Rep. Ted Deutch, a moderate Democrat, condemned Tlaib on the House floor
    • Tlaib is the only Palestinian-American elected official in Congress
    • She called Israel an 'apartheid state' that the US was 'enabling' Wednesday night
    • $1 billion was originally allocated toward the Iron Dome in Democrats' continuing resolution to avert a partial government shutdown
    • It was swiftly removed from the bill after progressives threatened to tank it

The House approved sending Israel $1 billion for its Iron Dome defense system by an overwhelming 420 to 9 majority after Progressive Rep. Rashida Tlaib was accused of anti-semitism by a member of her own party in a stunning rebuke on the House floor Thursday.

AOC, who abstained on the vote, made sure she was in camera shot and burst into tears as the result was read.

Among the 'no' votes were Tlaib and her fellow Squad members Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts

During the debate before the vote, Foreign Affairs Chair Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida, who opposed the $1 billion in funds' initial removal from an earlier bill, condemned Tlaib when it was his turn to speak during the debate.

'I cannot - cannot allow one of my colleagues to stand on the floor of the House of Representatives and label the Jewish Democratic state of Israel an apartheid state,' Deutch said Thursday. 'I reject it.'

Quite a bit more at the site. 420 to 9 is quite the rebuke.  Nice to see people starting to stand up to the leftist bullies and get back to normalcy.  The pendulum is swinging back. More at the site.  Bag thanks to the Daily Mail for doing the reporting that the American Mainstream Media is avoiding.
