One week ago, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Gregory Meeks (D-NY) expressed that "Hamas' attacks into Israel are terrorism, plain and simple. It must stop immediately." Now we've learned that just yesterday Rep. Meeks sent a letter to President Biden asking him to delay the sale of precision-guided missiles to aid in Israel's defense. Are Democrats preparing to betray Israel? Jordan Sekulow, ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy Ric Grenell, and the rest of the Sekulow team give their expert analysis on the developing situation in Israel and these newest revelations out of Capitol Hill.

Secular regrets comparing to betray the state of Israel talk about that were today live from Washington DC line your questions right now. 1-800-684-3110 and now your holes secular broadcasts. I do regret preparing to betray are the pretrip are prepared to betray Israel. I am not talking about how to clear those who already have. Politically, who used to be in the fridge.

The AOC is the receiver to leave the ill had Omar's the Presley's of the world.

This is not who I'm talking about. I'm talking about the House foreign affairs committee chair who is a Democrat. Gregory Meeks Congressman from New York. He got elected to the position in a December 2020, so he's fairly new to the position, but here's a headline back when he was chosen for this position and elected to the position as chair of the house Fort affairs committee from this is from a pay pro Israel is sometimes Israel newspaper.

It said Pro Israel Democrat Gregory Meeks voted Cherokee house Fort affairs pedal. He is voted in favor of military aid for Israel he's been against voted against the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement.

He put out to get support from AIPAC but he also had support from the more liberal J St. so again he was someone who I get was received as a supporter of Israel.

So we got the house Fort affairs committee seat on May 10. Hamas begins firing rockets into Israel and and this is what the house Fort affairs committee. Tweets of these great tweets fish come from Democrat chair chairman Gregory Meeks Hamas attacks into Israel are terrorism, plain and simple, it must stop immediately and that was on May 10 without its May 18 and yesterday in a breaking news.

Congressman Meeks is sent a letter to Pres. Biden requesting a delay of the sale of $735 million in precision guided missiles to guess who Israel in the middle of a conflict seven days ago he was calling Israel is being attacked by terrorist seven days later. He doesn't want there there there missiles to be replenished. While there having to utilize them to protect their citizens, they are holding emergency meetings about this weapon sailed Israel and Faye and I want you to explain people the house role in this sale, you want to say like this is approved by the administration as it was by the Biden administration, Congress has 15 days to review the release of that sale.

And technically, Jordan, the chairman of the committee.

In this case Gregory Meeks could get together and could move a resolution of disapproval. They have 10 days to review it and then if they were to pass that resolution beforehand.

Technically, it would freeze the funding out there might be a legal fight after that. But this is ice I sale that Jordan to underscore how significant of a role chairman Meeks played in this and I will tell you, you know this Jordan, but we went to great lengths to highlight this statement from chairman Meeks because of how significant his role in this is a very significant role. So his about-face is significant and and Jordan I would tell you this, when I boil all of this down. Here's the conclusion I draw the pro-Hamas wing of the Democratic Party is driving the bus. The Democrat party when I really believe that this is why it shifted just a week is like who got to him who got Tibbets that you are the one who knew they are being hit by terrorist that's very clear language another headset.

But let's not replenish their weapons and by the way doing for free that buying from us. The buying from the United States to replant the buyer from us. So why is this conflict not not a set of it should be a delay vibe maybe have a moving up to where are these pro-Israel Democrats like Chris Coons, like others, we heard about are they going to speak to Meeks are they going to get to the bottom of this so that Israel does whether not that that this purchase is going to be able to go through is preplanned $735 million. Nothing yet indicating that the Biden administration.

Is it ready to do this but hey 24 hours ago there was no indication that chairman Meeks, a Democrat, was going to oppose it, and he was supporting Israel. This is all happening very fast. That's why we say are the preparing, preparing to betray Israel so that their radical left elements their party don't break off and start launching primary challenges against more than they already are. Will talk about secular give us a call 1-800-684-3110 challenges facing Americans are substantial time and or value freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades ACLJ has been on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do or work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms event remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the end what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/singularity or focus diligently on this 164 3110 G believe that the Democrat party. I'm not saying they could be swayed back and want to take action your will just talk about the broadcast. The Democrat party is is preparing to betray Israel step-by-step. You take steps for someone like house Fort affairs committee chairman Gregory Meeks we could go with this conflict begins May 10 since out a tweet in support from the house. Fort affairs committee but but quoting him saying that Hamas is attack and Israel are terrorism, plain and simple, it must stop immediately and yet breaking yesterday afternoon was at the house Fort affairs chair rep. Gregory Meeks is sending a letter to Pres. Biden in the next few days requesting a delay the sale of $735 million in precision guided missiles to guess to Israel you think of that week the light and that that week time.

Maybe he's been influenced by the AOC is the receiver to leaves the radical left of the world in Congress, especially the Democrat party which is has gained more steam as been more outfront about their support of the Palestinians and not just think their antiwar and anti-conflict of a supportive cease-fire that actually pro-Palestinian and they believe the US policy is wrong is that the direction were moving in when you make a change like that within seven days and we just think about that from from saying they are being attacked by terrorists to be say, but let's not rearm the individually paying for those arms themselves or the West with first because West as her over to a retired colonel. I did this idea again, this is the house Fort affairs committee chair. He got the position because he was seen this order supported Israel a clearly you got the endorsements of those groups on the Democrat side were pro-Israel add to and from some nonpartisan groups and he put out the right kind a message on day one, but here we are. Day eight. The only thing the change that Hamas continues to up the ante continues to fire rockets day and night and Israel and I wants to delay Israel rearm and you think about it, and Israel has made this clear. If you must will stop the attacks Israel will stop responding. They have refused to stop attacking innocent civilians in Israel and so the fight goes on. What this is, it indicates Jordan is how far left some members of the Democratic party in Congress have gone and held that moderate Democrats like Meeks are more and more being held captive by the far left or they are no intimidated into acquiescence and the thing that I find so striking about some of this craziness coming out of people like AOC and some of the others. They are in a enamored they are actually enamored with terrorist groups and what they show is a lack of logic and end of critical thinking. If you really examine what's going on in Israel and with the Palestinian Authority and all of that if they really, really cared about the Palestinian people you know who they would be condemning they would be condemning Hamas for causing this. They would be condemning Hamas for using civilians as human shields, they would be condemning the Palestinian Authority for for abandoning the real needs and concerns of the Palestinian people and lining their own pockets. If you care about Palestinian people and frankly, many of them suffer. They don't suffer because of Israel. They suffer because of their own leadership and terror group that is taken over a whole section of their territory, our listed data. I would had us a Democrat US sitter Chris Curtis also called self-support of Israel.

He had asked about the $735 million take a listen.

By nine objecting to the administration's approval on some weapon systems at about $735 million and you think that that might be canceled. I doubt that very much so he doubts that very much but but I say Harry Chris Cruz Chris kids got to prove himself that the US Senate and the Senate Democrats to speak up and not let house Fort affairs committee chair, who is now wavering Gregory Meeks. Or maybe he'll get back on track. I hope he does. Maybe these constituents will reach out to, but that again that they are going to to step up and do something such as word service. I think you are precisely correct. So the key question is can Senate Democrats and the moderates in Congress can they recapture a backbone can base stand up to the left-leaning members of their own party.

So it's a very bizarre situation we are dealing with here all rockets from Hamas are still flying into Israel. Evidently house Democrats and perhaps Pres. Biden may be prepared to pray Israel and it it's startling, but it does recall past history who can forget the Obama administration's failure to veto the December 2016 UN resolution 2334 UN resolution 23, 34, was intended to do one thing and one thing only.

It was intended to tip the balance of the piece process to favor the Palestinians. It constituted a reversal of American policy.

Keep in mind that the United States supported UN resolution 242, which affirmed Israel's victory in the Six-Day War, and so the Obama administration caved in 2016.

The key question before all of the American people is whether the Biden administration will now follow suit. It's interesting to Andy we see from CBS News their producer tweeting out that the present by this just had an eight minute conversation with proceeded to leave and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell on the tarmac at Michigan.

We all know about cars went to leave she is a vocal supporter of the palace and she herself Palestinian and is very anti-Israel, so they just had a 10 minute conversation all you know in front of everybody.

Not trying to to hide this so you got Pres. Biden associated himself with the radicals who would love to defund Israel that's exactly right. We know Tel Aviv is completely in the end they revocably on the side of the Palestinians. She is one and she is made it very clear that Israel is the enemy of the Palestinians are the victims of that of Israeli attacks in Israeli terror and so forth. And now the present United States is talking to her on the tarmac and giving her lipservice look. I believe that Harriet has says that is very accurate. There is there here an imminent betrayal of Israel on the part of the United States. I apprehend I am very scared that that is what's going to happen here.

Jordan I think that there is a lot of what happened is you said in a week. The change greatly makes mine in a wiki saying the first of all, that there didn't. Hamas is a tax and Israel terrorism. It's got to stop and then eight days later seven days later he says well we need to think about the $735 million arm sale and we need to review the set.

What is there to review what is there to review.

Hamas is attacking Israel there on tell me what the provocation was there was no provocation whatsoever, except the sum symbolic days Jerusalem day. What was the other day that was named to that day of the date of the catastrophe day It has three today and they chose those. And that is what they do, they pick these days of symbolic gestures to begin rocket attacks in the United States has only one alternative if we are going to support Israel as we must, and that is the arm sale needs to go through and Biden does not need to cave to the left wing of his party that this is this is that I think the whole issue to me is that you've got now Joe Biden is cavorting with the radicals on this issue. Gregory Meeks Summers got to him. He's the house Fort affairs Jeremy from seven days on the tweets a great supportive message about Israel being attacked by terrorists.

He lays it all out there, the truth and then yet you know just a few days later week later he's changing his tune about arm sale, I would throw their hands up. They had about an arm sale that they knew about that was on the books. It's a sale were not giving anything to Israel. This is something you would do normally with your allies regardless if they were to conflict or not, but especially if you thought they were engaged in conflict that they did start that was started by terrorist attacks I Gregory Meeks said the congressman really believes that why would he be doing this to Israel. A couple things I say here Jordan.

First of all, I don't think the Biden administration. Once any advice from me, but I would give them the advice of these tarmac conversations do not generally go very well maybe avoid tarmac conversations going for the second. Jordan is gonna be incumbent on the moderate wing, the so-called moderate wing of the Democratic Party to step in here and you played that soundbite from Chris Coons and look I got some real concern here Jordan we had Sen. Langford on broadcast just a couple of days ago and he talked about the good faith of Sen. Coons. I've seen that as well he's typically had a good track record on Israel Jordan money only just reminder listeners of something. He was also just over in Europe trying to sell the Iran deal so look I I I think the moderate wing, the so-called moderate wing of the Democratic Party and I would include Sen. Coons in this now is the time to not rest on a good track record, and rest on friendly remarks about your ally Israel now is the time to actually stand up and take the action, it is necessary now is the time to not push in Iran deal with an entity trying to wipe Israel off the face of the map now is not the time to cater to the radical base that would want to freeze did this arm sale to Israel. Now is the time to actually back up your words with action. So look I give you the benefit of the doubt.

Sen. Coons you been good in the past but guess what your ally desperately needs you when they desperately need you now.

Time to step up and act review these calls for cease-fire. Either say I was understand that that will be up to Israel there were the palace to be if they've got to stop firing rockets. Hamas is to stop by rocket The one-sided, but second that that's over talk directly with the ability for Israel to complete a preapproved arm sale that was announced by the Biden administration and the Democrats are standing in the way you want your calls thoughts on this is Democratic Party going the way of AOC in Chantilly when he hundred 684 31 two only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable and is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.

We've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition like it will show you how you are personally only support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership of the ACLJ is empowering the right to question a free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/challenges facing Americans for substantial time with our value freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stand with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades ACLJ has been on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ secular.

We are to your focus to 100 684 31 two that's what hundred 684-3110, but I just think we get to this point now where you seen congressional leadership Democrats who have supported Israel, the past made a bipartisan issue and but now that they're there, backs up against the wall. There's an actual conflict. Knowing God, it didn't stop in five days you were eight days into this conflict look like will go into a nice day. Don't know if you even a cease-fire would hold how long it would help with this right now there's there's no idea of that actually happening.

One was that they tried wanted that that that it move very far at all, but you had congressional Democrat leaders, not rank-and-file or AOC.

Those types did not get them approved to leadership positions. There you can still say they were outliers. They are becoming more and more influential, especially when you have John also's of the world you like to the USA that the warlocks of the world get elected to the U.S. Senate and suddenly you start as a pretty radical colleagues in both the House and the Senate with loud voices and then did they get to the chairman of the house for the affairs committee. Why did he unabated a Democrat say that Israel be attacked by terrorist a bus stop and then on May 17. He's put a get letters to Joe Biden to slow down a sale of precision guided rockets to the state of Israel. While they are gauging the conflict that he called was a conflict started by terrorist and West you pointed out as a military event is a precision guided rockets, they may help to minimize civilian casualties and speaks to Israel's intention in this this way every time there's conflict.

Israel never targets civilians they they truly regret any time a civilian is killed worse. Hamas uses their civilians as human shields, even when their civilians try to flee a rocket launcher site or munitions warehouse prickly Hamas soldiers will not let them leave.

So there's a difference there yet. The $735 million in question. Here are two things there for J dams, which are joint direct attack munitions. These take a dumb bomb and make them into a precision guided smart bomb to try and limit collateral damage. The other is a GBU 39 which they are using in Gaza because it is a small diameter bomb that is lower explosive than the other was Israel is doing everything they can to defend themselves and to not kill innocent people and yet the on the left wing of the Democratic Party.

They are totally clueless about this is almost like your thing.

Do not confuse this with the fact they had this anti-Israel event that that they simply will not back away from and they're trying to influence moderates in the Democratic Party. And as you said, the real question is will they be successful so that in large measure, the Democrats abandon our chief ally in the region. The nation of Israel. Mike is calling for Nevada online to hey Mike, welcome to secular you're on the air affecting my call by loyal build-to-order exactly right. But my question and I'm not mistaken, there's actually not a real Palestinian people or nation per se. I mean, that their nomadic people are like Arabs, and in other cultures that basically were no matter occupy that area is not unrecognized nation of Palestine or a Palestinian nationality so I am always here that now the poor Palestinian of the poor Palestinians that not all that land was Israel initially and they allow those people live there and give it that territory but there is no Palestine corrected social history do you find a land that was called Palestine by the British unified that that people that found themselves in that at that moment than to claim to be Palestinian but get it.

Instead they do there. They are part of a larger breakup of the Arab world. You're correct that your date probably the closest would be a Jordanian and and some Lebanese to pick out what were part of these territories are talking about toward Syria as well but but again over time. We've gotten used to the even under SI there there.

These territories think there's a Gaza Strip and then there's the West Bank and that there is some status there. So I don't make two broad statements to say but I get your point and your point is well taken.

A lot of this is manufactured in it.

Unfortunately, that what we saw early on was Arab states and countries utilizing this people group to be there frontlines against the evil bad Israel is or they would fund them, they would support them and that was I think the real issue, but I gotta go to this so I hope that your questioning your right. We also do with reality. The reality is they've got a lot of recognition now especially the United Nations, they don't have their own state and have defined territories and have defined systems but I've got to go this Jim Saki was just asked about why Joe Biden is so quiet on this.

Where is the leadership.

Why is it such a vacuum really talkative record. Now the in the next half hour. The broadcast and he said the that Joe Biden hasn't even nominated a US ambassador to Israel taken hostage in Saki today by 46 I would say that we are not following the same Of the prior administration. We had the President has reinstated humanitarian is the sense that and security that something that was not back in 2018, and we felt was that not a constructive action by the prior administration. Aside from paying for it. A peace proposal that was dead on arrival. We don't think they did anything constructive relates to bring an end to the long-standing conflict in the Middle East. What I would hit right away, which is that they reinstated humanitarian and security assistance hey hey and that stuff of conflict. The me that I would about the RAM accord. Though they forget that you're willing to talk about that.

It that was that they were complete for the Middle East.

But this is a demonstration literally came in and gave the Palestinians humanitarian aid and security assistance and they used it to target Israel.

That's right. That was the provide responsible for it for their newfound wealth. Well, that's right, Joe Biden than one admit that the reality is that what they would do. Biden did, which was a reversal of the trump administration policy was to exacerbate the situation in the Middle East and to minimize when Pres. Tom did in the Middle East as far as securing peace and we only want to talk about. As you said, the Abraham accords in which Israel is now having relations with Arab Rebecca Arab countries in the Middle East that they would never have happened before was there this happening in the Middle East during the time of administration were rockets flying in from Gaza and attacking Tel Aviv and Jews look no, but it happens under the due of the Biden administration because they have taken a position in favor of terrorists and against the peaceful state of Israel was trying only to defend itself. This is I get to be elite at the Taylor force act violated Wesley so much of this again. She's bragging about what they did for the Palestinians but look what the Palestinians did with what they got wet in the region is on fire today because of the Biden policies know it, you can if you took her criticism at face value, which would be a very dangerous thing to do. You get a least a debt during the four years of the trump administration. There was relative peace there in which the Biden restrictions totally destroyed. But you're right, the Taylor force that what she did not mention is the reason we stopped giving financial aid to the Palestinians as we gave them a condition, an ultimatum that is if you. Paying murderers who kill Americans and Jews and quit giving stipends to their families, which is what Palestinian Authority to ask if you will stop that we will continue to give you financial aid to which the Palestinians said keep your money and they to this day still continue to reward people who kill Americans and Jews. Thus, the Taylor force act, they have refused to stop doing that and what does the Biden administration do well will go ahead and read will give you the money anyway. That is a boneheaded thing to do second half hour record out to be joining us. Our senior advisor for foreign-policy national security so he'll be joining us as well to discuss this and also a braided documentary were releasing today call not forgotten it such a short document so excessively to watch tablet on your phone call not forgotten the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson's that is being released, they face the okay films will check that out ACLJ.org and you'll see it throughout social media will talk to Rick about that. Talk to Rick about Israel as well. We cut back on secular get your phone calls it at 1-800-684-3110 at 2064 3110 will vary back for decades.

The ACLJ is been on the frontlines protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member thinking.

If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ live from Washington DC secular and secular diplomacy was regulated to require that everything subject that may be a good thing for Joe Biden to be quiet, not try to ramble through words, but when there is a world conflict going on it's it's good to let your own country know what side you're on what side the United States administration is audit over the American people aren't of the American people support the state of Israel. But what about our President and his administration should Saki was Artie asked about this idea of of all, but we did all the stuff the Palisades and the added that the did turn out well yeah they had a disaster in the Middle East because she doesn't mention Abraham accords because it like making peace deals with Gulf states. That's not Iran itself that Iran you make a peace deal with. You failed in them in them in the Middle East, even though there peace deal their nuclear deal with Iran didn't hold up very well either but she was asked again what we doing with his quiet diplomacy by 47 when you getting out of my sanity and I pray every person's life every day and continue is when our presence is that most of our conversation. Yeah, I mean behind the scenes with Thomas. The sign behind the scenes with Hamas and with Iran. So I think it's clear that elections have consequences. Policies have consequences, and the Biden administration has incentivized terror and so now the Middle East is literally in flames and the Biden administration is apparently proud of their achievements that have led to those rockets flying over Israel and to the further entrenchment of Iran with respect to the Palestinians and I think the Biden administration has also incentivized Thomas. Why because they've engaged in negotiations with Iran to rejoin the failed Iran nuclear deal with admitted to state it's what they do Saito diplomacy happens by the scenes that's that's great, but it would. It's also sitting a strong public message shapes that behind-the-scenes diplomacy and they're not doing that when they say just while it was while people died. We don't want that to continue with that. That's not that that's not sending a strong message to those who are conducting the behind-the-scenes diplomacy you can make an impact in these situations, your name and look what I would say back to Jen Saki is your tactical approach is not working. Clearly, the evidence is there to show that it's not working.

Maybe it's time to pit it.

Maybe it was a good strategy attempt to help our ally pursue other agreements in the region maybe actually getting allies in the region would keep terrorist organizations at David Jordan of the approaches they've taken is exactly the opposite. When I would just tell you from a political perspective, I think it's very clear Jordan that the soul of the Democrat party is on the line here when it comes to this issue. I don't know who the White House is gonna listen to, but clearly there are factions that are arguing from both perspectives and during there will be a policy ramification will Congress intervene and actually hold up these funds. There's also going to be a political one though because I still believe the vast majority of the American people stand with the nation of Israel and Jordan.

If the Democrat party. Washington DC walks away from Israel. In an even more meaningful way than they Artie have. I believe the pay a very heavy political price for our folks we come back a record now be joining us. Our senior counsel for a foreign-policy national security related to the bigger issue is what's happy with Israel.

Obviously, not just the politics he had states, but those politics as well because again is in somebody's been a senior diplomat performance. Rick has invested Germany, 15 years of the United Nations, and of course as acting director of national intelligence. He understands the importance of both what you do publicly what you do, behind-the-scenes, and how that works together. You don't just take one of the strategies silence publicly is is not a strategy it is you're scared of your own party. You're scared of the backlash of the left see you have a silent President. While conflict rages in the Middle East. We know you stand with Israel.

We don't you support state of Israel. When I encourage you to do throughout. This is to educate your friends and family on why so that they understand. Why do they support Israel victory pieces up@aclj.org. Great information to share and is always go to ACLJ.org and share that with your friends and family will be right back with record now the challenges facing Americans for substantial time with our Valley freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades ACLJ has been on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

But here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms and then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member thinking not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing, member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition life will show you how you are personally and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the end what Obama care means to the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to question your free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/secular record Miller Cedar Council for national security for policies joys, I would play the sound and succulent Richter reactivated.

We just got it to them. She was asked this morning about her poor city with a landed in Detroit.

She was asked about this, the idea of the by demonstration to question what was on quiet diplomacy that a second the otherwise why you acted so differently.

The previous administration.

Why take a listen I would say that we are not following the same Iron ministries we the present has reinstated humanitarian and security something that was not back in 2018, and we felt was that not a constructive action by the prior administration.

Aside from paying for it.

A peace proposal that was dead on arrival. We don't think they did anything constructive relates to bring an end to the long-standing conflict okay Richter I will get the Abraham records it just a second, but first Rick, I want to get to say we gave them a security assistance and look what they've done they've started a conflict.

Be very clear Jordan we should start and remind and finish every single in it from here to eternity on the back that Jen Saki just admitted that they have a different policy.

A fundamentally different policy hundred and 80 different than the trump administration when it comes to the Middle East now what does that mean I'm all for Presidents having new policies trying new and different things but we cannot have a Washington DC that puts its head in the sand. After they implement policies and not evaluate whether or not there new policy is working. Let's step back and see. I agree with Jack. They did something drop dramatically different than the trump administration. It isn't working. This whole idea of quiet diplomacy isn't working. We don't have a US ambassador in Israel. What are they thinking retrieve that outbreak. We have no ambassador to Israel not nominate no one nominates of known there as the top represented from the from the bind administration. You know the importance of as being the former ambassador to Germany.

The idea again to what we getting out his quiet diplomatic strategy and basically she says you know they like to see the conflict come to an end, but that they're going to do everything behind-the-scenes. I think Rick you were to diplomacy a long time in the negotiations, but also the intelligence world. You could do a lot of behind-the-scenes working. That's important and that's great. It's necessary what you say publicly shapes that behind-the-scenes work, and right now the silence is deafening, quiet diplomacy only works when the media are paying attention. You want to go and make progress outside the glare of the media like and and by the way, the trump administration did that a couple of times. I certainly know firsthand we did in Venezuela. We tried to do it.

I think it's important to be able to have a State Department and at diplomatic corps that can do both quiet diplomacy and loud diplomacy.

The fact of the matter is Jordan we have a crisis in the Middle East.

We have a crisis on the border and by demonstration. Think somehow quiet diplomacy is working in both. I have news for them. Neither one is working. They need to switch gears they need to recognize that giving money to the Palestinians backfired.

It didn't work Middle East got worse, the Israeli Arab conflict got worse because they are finding the Palestinians. I'm glad she admitted it. I'm glad she's telling the world that were giving them money because I've been very concerned, where did they get the money by the thousands and thousands of rockets that they are launching well now we now Jen Saki just admitted that bind administration, Americans have given the Palestinians, the money Mr. Bassett and let me ask you something. What kind of message is the fact that the Biden administration has not named a US ambassador to Israel.

What kind of message is that sending to the world to Israel to the Palestinians to the Europeans and so forth.

I also add to that the fact that Joe Biden refused to call the leader of Israel for a very long time. There were calls to say call Benjamin Netanyahu reach out to him coordinate with him in the Biden team really refused. This is a strategy of Jake Sullivan. He wants to ice out the Israelis.

It's clear. With the help of Susan Rice there try to send a very strong message.

She did the same thing. Susan Rice did the same thing at the UN. During the Obama years. They want to put the Israelis are nice and this is a very dangerous game because it sends the message to the Palestinians to Hamas has bought to what Ron that we are not as close to Israel and won't have their back. That's a dangerous dangerous game. I will just say this in the trump administration for all the criticism that we got for being on organize. We had a US ambassador to Israel named nominated through committee a confirmation about an in-place by May 15. They Biden administration haven't even named nominated a single bilateral ambassador Rick you'll love this acute Saki's enchilada question. I guess on this flight she could run away from the questions she's been asked, just by reporter now about war crimes, war crimes tribunal. Take a listen Rick you get your comments by 48 whenever this is a sign yesterday evening I sit near me on Israel and an investigation and accountability held on the international anything together will say that our objective now is hungry. Conflict is community just decide which of our allies to bring war crimes charges against the very clear what she just did she just allow UN Security Council to veto America's policy. We don't have in America policy. We certainly don't have an America first policy, because now we have to do is go to the UN Security Council put forward our idea and then listen to 14 other countries moderate down what will come out as the international community of global communities position will be the lowest common denominator of 15 countries on the UN Security Council that's outrageous. It doesn't make Americans safer and makes America less safe and buckled into a whole bunch of other countries priorities. This is something again.

I think you get back to Rick use that were like consensus but egg throwing Israel under the UN bus is is dangerous about this all going on the always comments happening today in rickets at the same time of get the passport affairs committee chair Democrat Gregory Meeks with this conflict started, said a massive terrorist is a terrorist conflict. I must they bill you must stop now he's seven days into it. He wants a halt the sale of weapons to Israel a sale that was Artie approved even by the by administration of $700 million.

Not giving it over.

The taxpayers are giving this to Israel.

Israel is buying it but something is getting to these Democrat members of Congress who have been a little bit right on the issue of at least Israel. In just the last 778 dates that Nancy because he knows this problem all to well. It's the squat squad has a lot of power. Our foreign policy is becoming bulk policy last Democratic Party has taken over domestic and foreign policy and created this progressive locus of and what that means is that while we lower our CO2 we have to pay for other countries to to politically make the right decision on climate change when it comes to the Middle East.

We have to wait for other countries to decide where they are when it comes to the Arab-Israeli conflict. We don't come down on the side of Israel, which is the only democracy in that region.

We instead are going to try to to tie Israel's hands and protecting themselves. You don't Rick out last question for you is will recover which particular mini documentary releasing today@morethanever.com it's more than ever.com. We talked with the city of ACLJ. Now more than ever it's about the release. It's called never not forgotten the release of Pastor Brunson you feature the stock to bidders while your best to germinate at this stage for a second here describe people.

That's why we say not forgotten to that moment on the tarmac late at night. The early hours the next day and in Germany when you presented Pastor Brunson that American flag is about 3 AM in the morning and the lead plaintiff landing the emotions of watching the plain taxi on American soil in Germany and where were watching as the plane opens up the emotions were getting Barry pay and I could feel that moment I could feel that God was in control and was bringing this individual. Pastor Brunson home. It was incredibly emotional and as he walked down the stairs of that plane and I was at the bottom of the stairs with an American flag. I had to struggle to keep my emotions intact because I knew in that moment that the pastor, the great Pastor Brunson did not need to see a US ambassador to emotional and so we got down we had our moment, I gave him the flag he hugged the flag is the flag and he was overcome with the most just like me is beautiful. I think they put their vision for people to see its epic I get more than ever.com researcher does not want social media. Rick, thanks for being with us will be right back on secular viewer check that document now more than ever.com only one.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us.

ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ realize what happened while we are talking to record now that is that Jean Saki is opened up the White House supporting it all just handing over the idea of Israel being prosecuted for war crimes.

The requester you hear says all you should have Mossadegh look at both sides but let me take some moss never getting in trouble in revolt, but we got plenty of time we spent at the international criminal court, they, they are seen as the they are seen as the party, the wronged party if you will add that Israel is the big bad bully and that even if Hamas started the conflict. Anything Israel did a response is wrong and they didn't they didn't stop it. Soon enough, even though Hamas won't stop the rocket fire.

But take a listen to Jim Saki say Israel's got a legal system. It can handle its own issues like this for the past positions by administration to the past.

No take a listen by 48 whenever this is nine anything that is near me is around nine investigation and accountability held on the international community to make together will say that our objective now is hungry and conflict see their objective doing anything that either because of silent diplomacy. So it's so behind-the-scenes it's hard to find the but we found it Saki today to answer questions than this idea. I don't know if it's because she was near receives a leave of this was happening, but suddenly the squad is becoming more and you send the check more and more mainstream inside the Democrat party and I think the actors, the nonelected adder actors like Jim Saki. They align themselves with that more extreme ideology that would some publicly members of Congress have to get elected and I don't care what the motivation was to her 90.

This is so offensive. This is not a decision for the international community to make this is a decision for the commander-in-chief or the United States to make it. Here's the situation we have an ally who has a designated terrorist organization lobbing rockets over the border at them and engine Saki says the President of the United States.

The man responsible for setting the foreign policy of the United States. The man responsible for activating the defense of the United States. He is going to defer to the international community to decide whether or not organist and buyer ally or other than organist and by the designated terrorist organization.

Jordan that's just not not just a slip of the tongue that is offensive and that is dangerous to the national security of the United States. Now that said, your point about whether or not this is just been motivated by a minority view inside the Democrat party and even a week ago I would've told you that I thought that that was a fair statement that is not a fair statement. Now you have the chairman of the House foreign affairs committee, the most powerful person on foreign affairs issues in the House of Representatives asking the President of the United States to no longer help our ally Israel defend against these attacks Jordan after today, unless a moderate wing stands up and speaks out vocally against this. This is now mainstream inside the Democrat party in Washington DC. We had a job in Texas on my webpage.

I look at the secular you're on their hey listen, selective the people lost part of mine. Israel's survival depends upon their defense and on their offense, you take away Disney's missiles from Israel. They want to go on the offense against God that are not take out those missiles, either by airstrikes or go in militarily and occupy that country support is that they are defending themselves they are not the sin that they are not the offensive actor. Here they they were responding and are responding to the attack by a Estates and recognized terrorist group in anything we do, including arm sales which were approved sales. Unlike Jim Saki brag about how they gave security assistance for free to the Palestinians and by the way the policy is doing that. They launched an attack on Israel. Israel buys their weapons of the United States. They actually have the county where they purchase $735 million purchase assets not a weight on the taxpayers. It's a burden of the taxpayers.

This is part of a doing a business government to government if you will especially ally to Allied lives will go rapidly due to play some from art in the document. More than ever in a bit, but just to get people thought this idea that it just feels like. Unfortunately, every day we will see a good comment from a Democrat in the days later it starts getting muddled and that we hear from the White House Press Secretary a good anti-Western Harry on this over what's happening is that there is the steady erosion in my view sub Cilento under the table of support for Israel and I see that happening because what is occurring here Jordan is that there is this steady movement of the radical left, taking precedence and speaking on behalf of the Democratic Party what happened. I want to know what happened representative Meeks in the week between May 10 and May 17 to change your mind about Hamas and the support that the United States has for Israel. What why do you want to delay so that lawmakers can review the sale. Review what what happened in that seven-day.

I want to know who got to you. What did they say to you, you need to come out and tell us exactly what we are witnessing in Israel today is a massive eight day long. So far, terrorist attack, and Hamas started it. Israel did not started. They have indicated that if a muscle stop targeting the civilians in Israel than they will stop retaliating. Hamas refuses to do it in. My question to Jim Saki and some of the Democrat is, why can't you bring yourself to unequivocally condemn a terror group and unequivocally support your ally. Why are you incapable of simply making a statement that does that. I agree with with and Dave if there has indeed been a steady erosion of Democratic Party support for Israel but I think the problem is. This erosion is beginning unto approach blood stage. Consequently, the trail, I believe, by the Biden administration is waiting in the wings and so all strong supporters of Israel ought to take note, the elderly act and the audit bring pressure on Congress and the Biden administration and say I want to play that this little place by first to get your thoughts. This is from our new documentary available@morethanever.com to start singing our social media as well as have not forgotten the release of Pastor Brunson. Here's the trailer from guys okay but what I thought loan so let me go to fan write out the equipment prop might have had a plate today will play tomorrow for you. It's all@morethanever.com but then I want you talk about you that experience with Pastor Brunson.

The experience with an administration doesn't do things quietly behind the scenes yet one of the most significant memories of the past three years.

In my professional life door and I gotta tell you see in pastor Brunson come home see in the effort that took place behind the scenes and maybe the most special thing to me was seeing the collaboration all the way from the highest level of the United States government all the way down to the members of the a skilled and honest talking about staff members were not talking about regular members of the ACLJ who amplified the story who made sure that US senators, US Congressman and ultimately higher levels of the US government, including the administration knew about it. To me there.

There was a lot of visibility at the highest levels of advocacy, but it also went down to the grassroots level of organization C and pastor Brunson come home was special and Jordan maybe one other memory I would I would remind you of when when pastor Brunson and his family came to Washington DC to say thanks to those who had advocated foreign in this town. The impact here that that left in the halls of Congress adjourned next to last a long time as well, yeah, absolutely. You want to check out more than ever.com to see that new documentary not forgotten the release of pastor Brunson includes of course record now without a sales a team member at the time was investor to Germany before serving as acting director of national intelligence, as were all over this issue involving Israel. You know, we have an office in Jerusalem and were all over the statements of income yet further analysis later in the week two because this is coming 123, which are statements for truly from troubling about where a major party is the United States is when it comes to the support of our ally Israel will talk to you tomorrow for decades. ACLJ is been on the frontlines protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member thinking. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ
