White House bashes GOP plan to shift funds from Gaza aid to Israel Iron Dome: ‘Not Hamas’
- October 20, 2023
The White House shot back at Republican efforts to redirect aid from Gaza to the Iron Dome, arguing the GOP lawmakers behind new legislation should back President Biden’s new supplemental funding bill for Israel.
Meanwhile, Hagerty argued that the “reality is that Hamas controls Gaza, and Hamas will likely find a way to use incoming American taxpayer dollars to further its objective of obliterating Israel.”
“This is not my opinion, but that of Biden’s own State Department that warned that there is ‘a high risk’ Hamas could potentially derive indirect, unintentional benefit from U.S. assistance to Gaza,” Hagerty said. “Until we know that U.S. taxpayer dollars won’t inadvertently fund Hamas, President Biden should support Israel’s efforts to put Hamas out of business once and for all—rather than push misguided measures to appease the radical far-left, sending taxpayer dollars that will inevitably be diverted to Hamas leadership.”
