Senator Rand Paul Blocks Israel’s Iron Dome Funding Again

JERUSALEM, Israel – Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY) on Thursday blocked another unanimous vote to grant Israel $1 billion in funding for its Iron Dome missile defense system. 

Paul has repeatedly argued that the Iron Dome funds must come out of the $6 billion in aid the government has set aside for Afghanistan.

“I’ll vote for the extra billion dollars. And that’s what I will propose today, but it should be offset with spending cuts elsewhere,” Paul said. 

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal (CT), who asked the chamber to vote on the Iron Dome funding, accused Paul of using “the US-Israel relationship as a political football.”

“It is against our own strategic interest. It violates our humanitarian values,” he added. “And I ask, where are my colleagues across the aisle when one of their own members is actively impeding Israel’s ability to defend itself from Hamas? Where’s their concern? Where’s the outrage?”

In October, Republicans and pro-Israel groups blasted Democrats when House leaders delayed a vote on the Iron Dome funding legislation after facing opposition from several progressives. However, the legislation later passed overwhelmingly 420-9-2 and was sent to the Senate where it has since been held up by Sen. Paul. 

Thursday marked the fourth consecutive time Paul has blocked Democrats’ request to approve the funds. Pro-Israel organizations blasted his decision.

  4. If ol’ Capt America blumenthal, who apparently fought the NVA all by himself, wants this Israel deal passed — there is something wrong with it.

  5. More false reporting. Rand Paul is not rejecting the request but that’s what the liberal media want people to believe. He just does not want to spend another $1 billion dollars on top of the wasteful spending our liberal leaders already spent. Take the money from the enemy countries we give tax dollars to (which we shouldn’t be doing in the first place) and give that to our ally Israel. That’s what Paul is saying.

  6. Dear Rand Paul, One thing I Pray above all else is that if Israel needs the Iron Dome funding even as we speak for the Peace & Safety, is that you don’t dare do even one thing to delay or hold it up. We as Christians are to Bless God’s People & their Land. Never to put them in harms way or withhold something that they need to save & protect them. If you can find something else to use as leverage, whatever that my be, please shift this vendetta somewhere else. God Bless You. A concerned Voter, Military Veteran & U.S. Patriot. God Bless You Sir.
