US House of Representatives Votes in Favor of Problematic ‘Israel’s Right to Exist’ Resolution

The US House of Representatives has passed a resolution solidifying the Israeli Regime’s “right to exist” with a staggering vote of 412-1. 

Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) cast the sole “No” vote, expressing concerns about the language used in the legislation.

“I agree with the title ‘Reaffirming the State of Israel’s Right to Exist’ and much of the language, but I’m voting No on the resolution because it equates anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism. Anti-semitism is deplorable, but expanding it to include criticism of Israel is not helpful,” he argued.

However, Pro-Palestinian Rep. Rashida Tlaib voted “present.” Another Squad member, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) reportedly did not vote.

The resolution was submitted by Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY). 

The resolution reaffirmed the Israeli Apartheid Regime’s “right to exist” but made no mention of the existence of Palestinians in their native land. 

It further condemns the Palestinian Resistance’s attack on the Israeli regime on October 7th, 2023 and also ‘’rejects calls for Israel’s destruction and the elimination of the only Jewish State.”

The Israeli regime has killed over 15,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children, since October 7, 2023 and destroyed almost 50% of the city.
