Rep. Jason Smith, a Republican from Missouri, sat down for a conversation on Newsmax where he stated that he believes the United States is currently starting to turn its back on its most important ally in the Middle East, Israel.
These remarks come just as Democratic lawmakers have removed $1 billion in military funding for Israel on Tuesday.
During his interview on The Chris Salcedo Show Smith said, “The radicals and the Democratic Party are really leading the Democrats to an area that … no one in America would love to see.”
”The fact that the people that [are] leading [Nancy Pelosi’s] party right now … are opposite of everything that we would ever possibly want in an ally. And Israel is our greatest ally that this country has, and right now, the Democrats are trying to turn their back on them,” he continued.
Reports are now indicating that House Democrats were not happy about a provision that allows additional spending for the “Iron Dome” defense system in Israel, which they promptly rejected.
Why aren’t they supporting such a measure? Apparently liberal Democrats are very worried that such funding might result in Palestinian casualties.
