Nine House members, including eight Democrats, voted against funding for the Israel Iron Dome missile defense system on Thursday.

The bill passed overwhelmingly 420-9.

The “no” votes were Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; Cori Bush, D-Mo.; André Carson, D-Ind.; Marie Newman, D-Ill., Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz.; Chuy Garcia, D-Ill.; and Thomas Massie, R-Ky.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Hank Johnson, D-Ga., both voted present.

IN the video below, AOC appears to be crying on the House floor after she changed her vote from “no” to present, during voting on funding to replenish Israel’s Iron Dome Defense Systems.

Congressional Democrats initially wanted to pass the Iron Dome funding in a continuing resolution on Wednesday. But because the legislation contained a debt ceiling increase Republicans refused to vote for it. That left Democrats with just a three-vote margin for error. When a handful of progressive lawmakers objected to the Iron Dome funding, Democrats were forced to pull the provision from the bill in order to ensure its passage along party lines.

  1. Apparently, after being reminded there is a likelihood that her “new” district, after census redistricting, may include additional portions of Pelham Parkway and Riverdale, AOC’s “nay” vote was shifted to “present” as if that will make a big difference to Jewish voters.

  2. No matter if a radical uses apartheid slur on democratic pluralistic Israel, even before its power in Knesset is in the hand of Arabs…

    Never forget, its origin was invented 6 years before the Six-Day War by Hitler’s helper, Ahmad Shukairy. Thus, the A slur origin is in fact, Arab Nazism.

    As to facts, I would just let anti Istael liberal Richard Goldstone who clarified Istael is 100% not an “apartheid” state.

    Yet one has to remember where the real apartheid against “the other” is practiced. Why,in racist Arab Islamic Middle East of course. Not to mention “moderate” Abu Mazen’s 2011 open promise, not a single Jew shall reside in his envisioned (ethnic vleansing) Arab “palestine”.

  3. Correction. “Nine House members, including eight Democrats, voted against funding for the Israel Iron Dome missile defense system on Thursday.” 9 Democrats. Voting present is a way of saying no. No one remembers the Obama Senate years?

  4. It’s a shame Talib doesn’t live in Pakistan, she would have never made it past living in the kitchen. Thanks to her own “faith”would we have been spared seeing her face as well.

  5. Unlike the 8 Democrat “no”s, plus the two Democrat “present”s, which are all motivated by antisemitism, Massie’s vote was NOT antisemitic. It was a vote on principle, against all foreign aid. He doesn’t agree that the USA should borrow money and give it away to defend Jews in Israel; that is Israel’s responsibility, so let the Israeli taxpayers pay for it. That’s not an unreasonable position to take.

  6. What is interesting about the vote is that there were 8 democrats and 1 afraid to vote against it (the present vote), while only 1 republican voted against it. However, if this bill would have been included in the spending bill as it originally was scheduled, the anti semites in the democratic party would have sunk there own parties bill as they hate Israel and for that matter Jews more than they care about their own parties agenda.

  7. Watch the crocodile tears of the ones who are against Israel! You know who they are, vote them out!
    Also you in Riverdale you know what you have to do!

  8. Democrats vote to fund iron dome and then turn around and vote to support and fund the Palestinian Authority, thereby encouraging Hamas (and hezbullah) to fire the missiles into Israel.
