Members of the far left have been on the attack against Israel for years.
This is nothing new, but the assault has been far more effective with the Squad in office now.
To that point, funding the United States has provided for the Iron Dome was recently removed due to far-left objections.
Pelosi and Company Cave
On the floor was a spending bill to keep the government operational through December.
The continuing resolution (CR) included the $1 billion to fund the Iron Dome in Israel.
The uber-progressives in the party objected and refused to vote to pass the bill unless that funding was removed.
Leadership caved and the funding was removed from the bill to get it through the House…
NEW: A little bit of drama with the Dem passage of the CR/ Debt ceiling in the House. A group of progressives have told leadership they will not vote for the bill if it includes $1b in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome. The flap has led to the Rules Committee to go into recess.

What happens now remains to be seen.
There are already reports blowing up that Israel’s PM has reached out to Democrat leadership for clarification on this.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) has tried to appease Israel by saying this is just a bump in the road.
He has assured the ally nation that the funding will be restored very soon and the Iron Dome will continue to be funded by the United States.
His word probably means very little and provides little solace, however, after Israel saw what Joe Biden has done to our allies in Afghanistan.
That is especially true when you realize the Squad has been calling for the defunding of this for some time, claiming it gives Israel an unfair advantage over Hamas, you know, that little terrorist organization that operates off the Gaza Strip.
