While Israel attempts to rid Gaza of the terrorist group Hamas, which massacred over 1,200 people in Israel on October 7, the Biden administration has undermined the war effort by refusing to notify Congress about military aid intended for Israel, thus blocking the delivery of the aid, according to a new report.

Although critics of Israel often cite U.S. military aid to Israel, Tablet Magazine noted, “(N)early all military aid to Israel — other than loan guarantees, which cost Washington nothing, the U.S. gives Israel no other kind of aid — consists of credits that go directly from the Pentagon to U.S. weapons manufacturers.”

According to The Wall Street Journal, despite the fact that the State Department is required to notify Congress when the U.S. sells arms to other countries and the price surpasses certain thresholds, officials said the Biden administration has not notified Congress about the proposed sale of up to 6,500 “kits that enable unguided bombs to be steered to a target,” thus denying Israel the capacity to be more precise in its attack and spare civilians in the process.

Additionally, officials said the Biden administration hasn’t notified Congress about military aid, including tank ammunition, military vehicles and mortar rounds, the Journal reported.

The Biden administration’s campaign to undermine Israel includes a report it is expected to deliver this week as to whether the administration contends Israel has violated U.S. or international law in Gaza. If the Biden administration says Israel has, it could jeopardize U.S. aid to Israel in the middle of Israel’s war against Hamas.

On April 30, Rep. Michael T. McCaul (R-TX), the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Sen. James Risch (R-ID), the Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wrote a letter to President Biden slamming his February National Security Memorandum.The timing of its release makes clear that its aim is to placate critics of security assistance to our vital ally Israel,” they stated.


They continued:

NSM-20 plainly was designed to appease critics of Israel. Following the brutal October 7, 2023, terrorist attack on Israel by Hamas – a U.S. designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) – Israel has been engaged in a campaign to destroy the military and governing capacity of Hamas in Gaza. Israel faces near-daily rocket fire from Hezbollah, another FTO, into its northern territory (where tens of thousands of citizens have been displaced), while Iran and Iranian-backed proxies in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen pose grave threats to Israel. Iran’s unprecedented drone and missile attack on April 13, 2024, was only the latest in a long series of aggressive actions that threaten regional stability. The February 2024 release date of the NSM, and the subsequent media attention it has generated on Israel alone, make clear that the policy is primarily motivated to placate anti- Israel sentiment at home and abroad.

“We urge you to revoke NSM-20, abide by the robust and vital human rights safeguards already codified in U.S. security assistance law, and continue to support our critical partners around the world,” they concluded.
