House Votes 420-9 for Israel
By Micah Halpern

Sunday September 26, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

It is good news when a bill supporting Israel wins by a whopping vote of 420 – 9 in the House of Representatives.

And that’s exactly what happened when the U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly for legislation to provide $1 billion to Israel to replenish its "Iron Dome" missile-defense system.

Referring to the vote as a "resounding response" to those challenging the United States' support of Israel, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said:
"Thanks to all members of the U.S. House of Representatives, Democratic and Republican alike, for their sweeping support for Israel and the commitment to its security. Those who try to challenge this support got a resounding response today."

In the debate that preceded the vote, Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian American, termed Israel an "apartheid state" and demanded that the House of Representatives discuss the protection of Palestinians from Israeli attacks.

She said: "I firmly believe our country must oppose selling weapons to anyone, anywhere without human rights law compliance."

House majority leader Steny Hoyer said support of Israel is not a partisan matter.
In his words: "We vigorously, strongly, unshakably stand for Israel's right to defend itself against terror … Iron Dome has saved countless lives.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the Iron Dome was purely a defensive system and said: "Passage of this bill reflects the great unity in Congress on a bipartisan and bicameral basis for Israel's security … Assistance to Israel is vital, because Israel's security is an imperative for America's security. Today, and every day, Congress stands in support of a comprehensive, durable peace in the region, and we pray for every life lost on all sides of this conflict.”.

This is a major statement of support for Israel.

As an aside, hedging her bets, AOC voted NO VOTE, or PRESENT in the proposal.
After the vote, she apologized to her supporters.
