By an overwhelming majority, the House voted to fund the Israeli Iron Dome today, a defensive system that protects against Palestinian rocket barrages. That vote was necessary as a stand-alone bill because far-left anti-Semites, mostly members of the so-called “squad,” joined forces earlier in the week to strip the funding from the main budget bill.
Naturally, those who live to see Israel wiped off the face of the Earth didn’t take it well as scenes of lunacy were presented on the floor.
Now, I may not be the smartest right-leaning writer on the internet, but I’m pretty sure that a defensive system that exists solely to shoot down rockets targeting civilians is not enabling war crimes. That is unless you take Tlaib’s statement to its logical conclusion, which is anything that denies the Palestinians the ability to murder masses of Jews somehow prolongs the conflict.
You see, the anti-Semites in Congress have often signaled that they believe Hamas terrorists should have parity with the Israeli military because that would then force Israel into concessions and therefore deliver “peace.” It’s a sick position to hold, but it’s one Tlaib has rambled into many times, and while she tries to couch it in emotional pleas for human rights, it’s clear she’d prefer dead Israelis if it ended with Palestinian terrorists getting what they want.
But what if I told you that wasn’t the craziest response of the day? Because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually started crying after voting present.
