Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan issued one opinion on Thursday, accusing Israel of carrying out “ethnic cleansing in Gaza.”
“As the Israeli government conducts ethnic cleansing in Gaza, President Biden cheers on Netanyahu, whose own citizens are protesting his refusal to support a ceasefire,” Tlaib said in her statement.
The US House of Representatives passed an aid to Israel measure on Thursday, with most Republicans and a dozen Democrats voting to pass. Two Republicans, Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, voted against the measure, which would provide billions in aid to the Jewish state while cutting funding for the IRS.
“Rising inflation and high interest rates are due to overspending. We cannot afford any more foreign aid. “I voted against billions for Ukraine, and tonight I’m voting against over $14 billion in foreign aid for Israel,” Massie said tweeted.
Greene shared a Video in which she discussed her vote against the amendment, emphasizing that she is a staunch supporter of Israel.
Greene introduced a resolution to censure Tlaib last week, but Democrats and more than 20 Republicans voted to table it on Wednesday.
Tlaib joined the majority of Democrats in the House of Representatives on Thursday in voting against the measure to increase Israel funding.
“US funding of the Israeli military without humanitarian conditions will prevent us from ending violence and achieving peace. To achieve a just and lasting peace, the blockade must be lifted, the occupation must be ended and the dehumanizing system of apartheid must be dismantled. Not only that.” “Some of my colleagues want to send more weapons to commit war crimes and violations of international law, but they want to do so by giving tax breaks to billionaires and undermining critical investments in our communities,” Tlaib said in her statement.
