Trump attacked Democrats for not standing with Israel as it faces continued terror attacks.
President Donald Trump released a statement condemning the Biden administration for showing “weakness and lack of support for Israel” amid Palestinian terror raids.
Trump’s statement read, “When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked. Under Biden, the world is getting more violent and more unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is leading to new attacks on our allies. America must always stand with Israel and make clear that the Palestinians must end the violence, terror, and rocket attacks, and make clear that the U.S. will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself. Unbelievably, Democrats also continue to stand by crazed anti-American Rep. Ilhan Omar, and others, who savagely attack Israel while they are under terrorist assault.”

Trump statement comes as Israel is facing intense rocket attacks by the Palestinian group Hamas. Hamas attacked Tel Aviv with at least 130 missiles Tuesday injuring at least 3, including a 5 year-old girl. There has been rocket attacks against Israel day and night since tensions over Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem boiled over during the weekend. May 9 marked Jerusalem Day where Israelis celebrate the reunification of Jerusalem under Israeli rule.
Indeed, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tweeted Tuesday that Israel should not be threatening “Palestinian children.”
Palestinian children deserve advocates for their humanity, safety and security. No exceptions.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) tweeted Monday that Biden should be defending those who are launching rockets at Israel. “Israel attacks it during Ramadan. Where’s the outrage @POTUS?” she said.
I was 7 years old when I first prayed at the Al Aqsa with my sity. It's a sacred site for Muslims. This is equivalent to attacking the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, or the Temple Mount for Jews.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), tweeted a similar message Saturday. “We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian residents of Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem,” she wrote on Twitter. “Israeli forces are forcing families from their homes during Ramadan and inflicting violence. It is inhumane and the US must show leadership in safeguarding the human rights of Palestinians.”

“This is something that our national security team is closely monitoring, obviously, across government,” Psaki said. Biden is being “kept abreast and is watching closely, as well.”
