Blackburn criticizes evenhanded Biden admin call to end violence, demands weapons for Israel

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is taking a firm stance on supporting Israel in its defense against Hamas militant terrorist attacks and called for the U.S. to send weapons to the nation in a recent letter sent to President Biden.

The Republican senator slammed the administration’s Office of Palestinian Affairs for initially calling for “all sides to refrain from violence and retaliatory attacks” in a now-deleted post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“So far, the administration’s response has been far weaker than Israel — a shining beacon of democracy and our most important ally in the Middle East — deserves,” Blackburn wrote.

Blackburn urged the federal government to “provide all weapons and munitions necessary.”
