House formally condemns Biden’s pause on weapons transfers to Israel


The House passed a resolution condemning President Joe Biden for his threats to withhold weapons shipments to Israel in a Republican-led vote that put Democrats at a crossroads on an issue that is set to become increasingly relevant ahead of the 2024 election. 

Lawmakers voted 224-187 to pass the Israel Security Assistance Support Act, which decries Biden’s “dangerous hold” on weapons to Israel while also proposing to withhold funds from the secretaries of state and defense as well as the National Security Council until the materials are delivered. The resolution passed largely along party lines, with 16 Democrats joining in advancing the measure. 

The resolution condemns Biden’s actions and would require his administration to expedite weapons, funds, and other forms of aid within 30 days.
