My Ironclad Commitment to Israel

President Biden backtracked his ironclad commitment to Israel on May 8th, when his administration announced he would withhold all offensive weapons to Israel if they entered Rafah to destroy Hamas terrorists. This decision was made without notifying Congress. In fact, Congress was not even notified of this decision. Instead, we learned about it on CNN. These weapons were approved and authorized by Congress.

This week I introduced the Ironclad Act to prevent the president from pausing defense articles to Israel unless Congress is notified 15 days before. It also allows Congress to pass a Joint Resolution of Disapproval that would urge the arms shipment to proceed. 

President Biden is making a dangerous mistake that undermines Israel as it fights a multi-front war against Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, and Iran. It is deeply concerning that the Biden administration is threatening to walk away from our closest ally in the Middle East during its time of need. 

Now, more than ever, we need to make sure our allies know that United States can be relied upon when they are under threat – and that our adversaries know we stand with our allies.
