The president of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) blasted the members of the Democratic “Squad” for the defunding of Israel’s Iron Dome defense system from the massive spending bill.
Responding to an op-ed published by The Times of Israel titled “The immorality of Democratic ‘progressives’ targeting Iron Dome,” ADL president Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted, “It is unconscionable that a small group of Members of Congress — the so-called ‘Squad’ — demanded that the House leadership strip out funding for Israel’s Iron Dome before they would approve the [continuing resolution].”
“The Iron Dome is a defensive system designed to protect civilians. Innocent people of all ethnicities & faiths — Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze and others — depend on the Iron Dome for protection when terror groups like Hamas + Hezbollah launch thousands of rockets at them,” Greenblatt wrote on Wednesday. “It is a disgrace that the Squad succeeded. It emboldens Hamas & Hezbollah and others enemies of peace. To the MOCs who made the demands, look at the below. Every intercepted rocket was fired indiscriminately toward civilian centers with 1 goal: the brazen murder of innocents.”
Greenblatt predicted the “shameful act” by the progressive lawmakers will “fuel further campaigns by anti-Zionist activists” as well as inflame anti-Semitic violence like what took place last spring amid the Israel-Gaza conflict.
“Make no mistake – human lives are at stake. Lawmakers are promising action and we demand Congress follows through. This funding has been delayed by both Democrats & Republicans for too long. We need an immediate bipartisan effort to fund the Iron Dome now,” Greenblatt added.
The “Squad,” which includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., were able to scrub the proposed $1 billion meant to continue funding the Iron Dome.
However, several moderate Democrats, including Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin, slammed the progressive victory.
“Iron Dome is a purely *defensive* system — it protects civilians when hundreds of rockets are shot at population centers. Whatever your views on the Israeli-Pal conflict, using a system that just saved hundreds, if not thousands, of lives as a political chit is problematic,” Slotkin tweeted on Tuesday. “So to target Iron Dome now means the issue isn’t a genuine concern over the system, but rather the desire to attack something – anything – related to the State of Israel; it’s devoid of substance and irresponsible.”
On Wednesday, House Democrats introduced a separate bill that would provide the $1 billion in funding towards the Iron Dome.
A while back, Rep. Tlaib advocated for the BDS Movement from the Floor of the House of Representatives.
So what is BDS?
Per their website bdsmovement.net,
Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.
BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Thirteen years since its launch, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.
Rep. Talib said this in May of 2019….
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said on the podcast’s most recent episode, published Friday. “And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
In case you do not remember, the night that Rep. Tlaib was sworn in as a member of the 116th Congress, she was videotaped vowing to impeach Former President Trump. This was shortly after she penned an op-ed for The Detroit Free Press outlining the case for impeachment.
The video showed Tlaib telling supporters.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”
Tlaib is a Black Muslim, born in America to parents of Palestinian descent.
As I have been writing over the last 11 years, Liberals are nothing if not predictable.
They view everything in terms of politics and race, not necessarily in that order.
For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, Israel, since their birth as a country in 1948.
What we are seeing now, as regards the rampant anti-Semitism in the Far Left Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.
Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, including “Democratic Socialism”.
Anti-Semitic groups tend to gravitate toward each other finding solace and kindred spirits in their shared hatred of the Jewish people.
For those of you who are old enough to have actually studied history before the Liberals started revising it, the world has bore witness to this phenomena before.
A socialist political party in a developed nation joined forces with Islamists before, based on their mutual hatred of Jews.
You may remember this. They were the National Socialist Party of Germany, otherwise known as the Nazis.
They caused the mass extermination of millions of innocent European Jews, the Holocaust which gives Congresswoman Tlaib “a calming feeling”.
The political philosophies which the Modern Democrats are now embracing are the anti-thesis of whom they claim to be.
Average Americans are not fooled by the “Unity” Rhetoric spewed by Joe Biden and the Far Left Democrats..
Heck, they can not even keep their own political party unified.
Those who hate Americans, simply because they are Jewish, like those who hate the nation of Israel for the same reason, have already gone on record.
Those on the Left Side of the Political Spectrum bear the responsibility for the anti-Semitic violence which has plagued New York City and is beginning to rear its ugly head in other cities, as well,.
Unfortunately, all we are hearing from their leaders is support for a “country” which never existed.
