Washington, D.C.- House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement in response to Joe Biden’s decision to withhold munitions to Israel doubling down on his anti-Israel policies and threatening US national security in the process. 

“Joe Biden doubled down on his dangerous anti-Israel policies that put US national security at risk. Biden is undermining Israel by withholding munitions needed to target Hamas. In defiance of Congress, Biden’s decision greenlights Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran to escalate attacks following his failed foreign policy of appeasement. Joe Biden has put the security and very existence of our most precious ally Israel at risk due to his desperate attempt to salvage his plummeting polling. Joe Biden is prioritizing appeasing the pro-Hamas base of the Democrat Party over returning American and Israeli hostages and supporting Israel’s right to exist.”
