House Republicans to Push Vote Affirming Israeli Support After Left's Attacks

House Republicans are seeking to force a vote to affirm support for Israel after some Democrats have attacked the long-time ally.

The move quickly followed the most recent attack by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) that referred to Israel as a "racist state."

“Israel is the United States’ strongest partner in the Middle East,” Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) said in a statement when introducing the bill.

“Representatives Pramila Jayapal, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar’s repeated comments denigrating Israel are unacceptable and disgusting. I am proud to introduce this resolution ensuring all Americans know where their Representatives stand when it comes to supporting Israel and our Jewish communities," he added.

Israel also became a controversial topic after Rep. Ilhan Omar said she would not attend Israeli President Herzog's speech before Congress.

Omar said "there is no way in hell" she would attend the event.

“The United States can and should use its diplomatic tools to engage with the Israeli government, but giving the current government the honor of a joint televised address sends the absolute wrong signal at the wrong time,” Omar added.

The criticisms are not new for the Squad members. Omar has been especially noted for her anti-Israel and antisemitic views.

In addition, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has often been outspoken against Israel in public.

The ongoing issues are now leading to Republicans pushing for an affirmation of support in an act that will likely receive strong support from both parties and put Squad members to shame for their extreme views against Israel.
