This is not a “right-left” issue and it’s not even an Israeli-Palestinian issue. It’s much deeper and more important than that, explains Honest Reporting CEO Daniel Pomerantz.
An earth-shattering event happened in Congress: House Democrats removed $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system from an emergency funding bill and later put it back in a different bill.
Last May, Iranian backed US designated terror groups in Gaza launched nearly 4,500 rockets at Israel. Hundreds of those terror rockets fell short in Gaza, killing Palestinian people, in the same way that ISIS and Bashar Assad often kill Syrians. Israelis and Palestinians are both victims of terror groups. Iron Dome is everyone’s best protection.
Why would nine members of Congress vote against a defensive system that weakens terrorists and protects ordinary civilians? Because for those extreme politicians it’s not about saving lives, it’s about narrative.
HonestReporting CEO Daniel Pomerantz warns that this was not an isolated event, rather a trend that we ignore at our peril.
