Tuberville Statement on Confirmed Reports of Biden Administration Delaying Weapon Sales to Israel

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) released the following statement following U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s confirming a “pause” in sending weapons to Israel.

“Israel is one of our closest and most important allies. We should be consistent in supporting our friend as they fight a war for their very survival. What we are seeing from the Biden Administration is the worst kind of betrayal. Saying you support the Jewish people then withholding critical arms and munitions only emboldens the Hamas Terrorists and prolongs the fighting. President Biden needs to stop appeasing the America-hating fringe of the Democrat party for votes in November and release the weapons to Israel.”

Senator Tommy Tuberville represents Alabama in the United States Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP Committees.
