According to the Daily Mail, those who opposed the funding for the defensive Iron Dome system “includes progressive Democrats who signed a resolution in May aimed at blocking a $735 weapons sale to Israel during deadly violence between Israel and Hamas.”
Tragic. Dem leadership surrenders to the anti-Semitic Left.
They hate Israel so much that Dems are stripping $1 BILLION in funding for Iron Dome—a purely defensive system that protects countless innocent civilians from Hamas rockets.
Will any Dems have the courage to denounce? https://t.co/2TzLw7uR96

BREAKING → Democrats just pulled funding from the Iron Dome—the missile defense system that has saved countless lives in Israel from Hamas' rocket attacks.
While Dems capitulate to the antisemitic influence of their radical members, Republicans will always stand with Israel.

Why did the Democrats just strip out funding to support Israel's Iron Dome?
Because the Iron Dome works.
For Ilhan Omar and the left, saving Israeli lives from terror attacks is unacceptable.

🚨🚨 Some House Democrats hate Israel so much that they're refusing to pass their own spending bill if it includes funding for the Iron Dome—which protects our ally from terrorists.
This is how radical they’ve become.
