Building on her efforts to hold President Biden accountable to his “ironclad” commitment to Israel, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) is supporting a resolution to condemn the president’s decision to withhold weapons from our greatest Middle Eastern ally.

“I just returned from Israel, and it’s clear America’s leadership at this moment is imperative. Our service members are under attack by Iran-backed proxies, and our citizens are held captive by Hamas. The last thing we need is a president who waffles in his support for our ally, but we have one who has broken his ‘ironclad’ promise by withholding weapons from Israel. These are the precision tools needed to target Hamas and protect civilians,” said Ernst. “We already have the mouthpieces of Hamas here at home, violently ‘protesting’ on college campuses – we don’t need it in the White House. It’s clear we need new leadership.”

The resolution:

  • Condemns any decision by the Biden administration to halt the shipment of United States-made ammunition and weapons to the State of Israel
  • Demands that the Biden administration continue to fulfill the military aid requests from the State of Israel in order to provide the weapons needed to defeat Hamas and defend against attacks from the Islamic Republic of Iran and its proxies
  • Reaffirms the importance of the long history of the United States providing military aid to the State of Israel and willingness to expedite delivery of such aid in times of crisis
  • Upholds the commitment of the United States to the State of Israel’s security and long-term prosperity
