New York Rep. Ritchie Torres, a proud supporter of Israel, demolished an anti-Israel mob that claimed Israel was carrying out a genocide against Palestinians.
The Congressman calmly explained to the protestors that a genocide would imply that a group of people are being systematically killed. However, he pointed out, the number of Palestinians in Israel has grown exponentially since Israel’s founding.
When the hecklers brought up US funding for Israel’s Iron Dome, Torres made a open-and-shut case for funding it.
He explained that the Iron Dome is a purely defensive weapon that can only be used to shoot down rockets being fired at civilians. Torres said he’s “proud” to be a supporter of such a fantastic defensive weapon.
