Bernie Sanders Introduces Legislation To Block $735 Million In Weapons To Israel

Senator Bernie Sanders introduced a resolution Thursday to block a planned $735 million sale of precision-guided weapons to Israel, as hostilities continue between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Sanders’ resolution comes after President Biden urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a call on Wednesday to “de-escalate” the conflict.

“At a moment when U.S.-made bombs are devastating Gaza, and killing women and children, we cannot simply let another huge arms sale go through without even a congressional debate,” Sanders said in a statement. “I believe that the United States must help lead the way to a peaceful and prosperous future for both Israelis and Palestinians. We need to take a hard look at whether the sale of these weapons is actually helping do that, or whether it is simply fueling conflict.”

The resolution seeks to halt the planned sale of Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs) and small diameter bombs. A similar resolution was introduced in the House by Democratic Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mark Pocan and Anti-Semite Rashida Tlaib on Wednesday.

The resolution is privileged, meaning that Sanders could call it to the floor for a vote without having to vote to advance the legislation first. It would require a simple majority to pass, although it is unclear whether the resolution would receive sufficient support from Democrats to be approved.

However, if it did pass and Mr. Biden vetoed the resolution, a two-thirds majority vote in both houses of Congress would be needed to override the veto. Former President Trump previously vetoed three resolutions to block arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and there was not enough support in Congress to override these vetoes.

  1. A self-hating Jew!! Now that is no news at all. Exactly like the judenrat Bernie, theyll use you and then when they dont need you anymore…

  2. Thanks to our democratic friends for not selecting Bernie as your nominee!

    To Bernie’s credit, he seems to be the only D- senator who actually cares about the poor and does not support restoring SALT write off. Maybe VT liberals are less rich than NY.

  3. It must be that Bernie does not like the fact that the US is selling precision-guided bombs to Israel. Apparently, he would rather we just do like the US did to Germany in WW2 and carpet bomb cities and level Gaza to the ground.

  4. Bernie Sanders was probably behind the millions given to Gaza to build themselves up and all they did was use it for rockets tunnels etc. Israel is using it only for self defense. Bernie should move to Gaza

  5. So according to Sanders and other leftists our beautiful country 🇺🇸 isnt allowed to support our ally Israel in defending itself
    beacuse hamas uses civilians as human shields which means unfortunately innocent ppl die but they are in support of giving iran billions in the iran deal (like obama did…) which iran then gives to terrorists groups like Hezbollah and hamas who then uses it on israeli civilians… so hamas is allowed to shoot at civilians targeting them PURPOSEFULLY while israel shoots back in retaliation at Hamas targets and warns civilians in advance to evacuate…but israel is at fault…OFC 🙄 just like nikki haley said (I’m not a fan of her as she is a politician but she is right about this) imagine someone was shooting missiles into Washington D.C … u know what happend to the Japanese when they attacked pearl harbor which was a millitary base imagine if they attacked a city like new york targeting civilians would politicans still pressure the government to a ceasefire? and further evidence is such a scenario kinda happend…911 terrorists attacked innocent civilians 3000 innocent ppl were murdered by those evil disgusting pigs…what happend afterwards? America went into war in Afghanistan against the taliban (freinds of al Qaeda and protectors of bin laden beacuse they didn’t wanna hand over that evil creature) and 20 years later we are still there! a war which has cost the life of innocent ppl too unfortunately. yes a 20 year war! If u attack our ppl u will regret it! We🇺🇸 have the right to defend our ppl from terrorists! ofc we need to try to make sure innocent ppl arent harmed (just like israel does ) so why dosent israel have the same right to defend itself?
