Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed President Joe Biden this week for Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel over the weekend, saying that the Biden administration paid for the missiles and drones that Iran used.

Cruz made the remarks during a broadcast of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson in response to the attack.

“It was the first direct attack on Israel from Iran in history and it is an extraordinary escalation of what has been going on,” Cruz said. “This tragically is the result of the Biden Foreign Policy of Appeasement and the entire Democrat Party backing away from Israel and sending billions of dollars to Iran. In a very real sense, the missiles that Iran fired at Israel, were paid for by the Biden administration.”

Cruz said that the administration allowed the “sanctions on missiles in Iran to expire.”


“They did this in the midst of Iran, funding Hamas, funding Hezbollah, funding October 7, and launching over 100 attacks on US servicemen and women,” Cruz continued. “On October 7, more than 1,200 Israelis were murdered. That included roughly 30 Americans who were murdered. We still have American hostages; we still have Israeli hostages. Not only that we have three servicemen and women, the Iranians have murdered in their more than 100 attacks. And what does the Biden administration keep doing? Shoveling cash to this theocratic, lunatic Ayatollah.”



Israeli officials said that Iran crossed a major red line with its attack and would pay a steep price for the terror inflicted against the Jewish state.

They said that despite Iran’s claims that it was only targeting military infrastructure, Iran also targeted “major civilian areas” and that a direct military response would be required.
