Democrats Pull Funding for Israel’s Iron Dome Defensive System

The Democratic Party pulled funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defensive anti-rocket system from its stopgap spending bill

Published

Until today, Sept. 21, the Democrats’ stopgap spending bill that the House plans to vote on this week included $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome defensive anti-rocket system. A group of progressive Democrats threatened to block the legislation unless the defensive aid was withdrawn, continuing the anti-Israel policies which have dominated the Democratic Party since Barack Obama became POTUS.

To put that $1 billion in context, President Biden left over $80 billion worth of military equipment behind for the terrorist Taliban during the Afghan pull-out.

According to Politico, the group that threatened to block the continuing resolution unless the defensive funding for Israel was removed. included Rep. Mark Pocan (D., Wis), the Squad, and other members who signed onto unsuccessful legislation to block arms sales to Israel in May and have made both Anti-Israel and Anti-Semitic statements in the past.

Iron Dome and is not an offensive system. It shoots down rockets aimed at Israel. Since the system was first implemented in 2011, it has shot down thousands of rockets heading toward Israel and saved countless civilian lives.

Not mentioned by the people objecting to the Iron Dome spending is that part of the population that Iron Dome protects are Israeli Arabs.

Most of the rockets fired toward Israel and shot down by Iron Dome have come from Gaza. The rocket firing is pure Anti-Israel terrorism and has nothing to do with what the liberals like to call “occupied territory.” Israel pulled out of Gaza 16 years ago in August 2005. Hamas rules the Gaza strip.

With their fight to remove the defensive Iron Dome funding, the Democrats were displaying their agreement with this part of the Hamas charter:

The Introduction to the Hamas Charter calls for the destruction of Israel and the killing of all Jews, saying in part, “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it” The Charter also talks about defeating the “Zionist invaders” and setting up an Islamic Caliphate (yes, just like ISIS) run by “Islamic Sharia.” As for the Jews, the charter adds, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews. When the Jew will hide behind stones and trees, the stones and trees will say, “O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.”

All is not lost because the funding may come back. Per the Hill:

A spokesperson for House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) said that funding for the Iron Dome “will be included in the final, bipartisan and bicameral” defense funding bill later this year.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), a leading centrist, expressed frustration that the Iron Dome funding was being removed, but stopped short of threatening to vote against the bill.

“The Iron Dome protects innocent civilians in Israel from terrorist attacks and some of my colleagues have now blocked funding it,” Gottheimer tweeted. “We must stand by our historic ally — the only democracy in the Middle East.”

I would imagine that DeLauro’s promise will only be kept if the Anti-Israel reps who have the power in the Democratic Party can be convinced to change their “minds.”

Only part of the reason Israel is a historic American ally is that it is the only Democracy in the Middle East. But more than that, the Israel-American friendship is a two-way street. Israel has contributed to American security through counterterrorism training, intelligence sharing, and military innovations as unmanned aerial vehicles and missile defense. Israel continues to make advances in those areas and share them with the U.S. This is even more important now that Joe Biden has totally pulled out of Afghanistan, removing one of our most essential listening posts in the Middle East.

Israel has also shared its advances in the high-tech medical sectors that have helped maintain American economic competitiveness and communications with Americans. Israel’s breakthroughs in irrigation technology have helped American farmers to feed the world.

Note that the missiles U.S. used for the Iron Dome defensive system must are produced in the U.S (by Raytheon). Therefore, the Democrats are not only screwing our important Israel ally but they are hurting American Jobs.

Despite a relationship that helps Israel and America, the Democratic Party has been filled with Israel haters and anti-Semites for over a decade, the media hasn’t covered the hatred.

Why has the Democratic Party become the anti-Israel party? The only honest answer is that it is the fault of much of the American Jewish community. They have proved the famous words of Ze’ev Jabotinsky, who said, “It is incredible what political simpletons Jews are. They shut their eyes to one of the most elementary rules of life that you must not ‘meet halfway’ those who do not want to meet you.’

Voters influence candidates’ positions. The majority of Jews in the US continue to vote Democratic despite their anti-Israel and anti-Semitic comments. And the party knows they will still get the Jewish votes despite their policies of hatred.

Republicans blasted the Democratic Party action:

Former VP Mike Pence who was a big supporter of Israel throughout his congressional years added his voice blasting the Democrat’s action:

The Democratic Party action provides additional evidence that people who support Israel and/or oppose Antisemitism should be voting Republican.

VIDEO: Police Inaction During Uvalde Shooting has Residents Furious

Authorities have suggested that they are investigating the inaction of some officers during the shooting, but haven’t elaborated further.

As the chaos played out in Uvalde, Texas this week, several local Uvalde residents, (some of them parents of children currently inside the scene of an active shooter situation), were on the street pleading with police to enter the school.

These officers did not enter the school, however, until backup of some sort arrived, and their inaction has many in the community absolutely furious.

Frustrated onlookers urged police officers to charge into the Texas elementary school where a gunman’s rampage killed 19 children and two teachers, witnesses said Wednesday, as investigators worked to track the massacre that lasted upwards of 40 minutes and ended when the 18-year-old shooter was killed by a Border Patrol team.

“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house, across the street from Robb Elementary School in the close-knit town of Uvalde. Carranza said the officers did not go in.

And, what’s more…

Javier Cazares, whose fourth grade daughter, Jacklyn Cazares, was killed in the attack, said he raced to the school when he heard about the shooting, arriving while police were still gathered outside the building.

Upset that police were not moving in, he raised the idea of charging into the school with several other bystanders.

“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” he said. “More could have been done.”

“They were unprepared,” he added.

The harrowing scene was shared on social media, but we must warn you that the video below is not for the faint of heart.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
