Graham: Give Israel What They Need To Fight A War They Cannot Afford To Lose

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today questioned Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Charles Q. Brown, Jr. on the Biden Administration withholding weapons delivery to Israel.

  • GRAHAM: “Israel has been hit in the last few weeks by Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas [who are] dedicated to their destruction. And you’re telling me you’re going to tell them how to fight the war, and what they can and can’t use when everybody around them wants to kill all the Jews? And you’re telling me that if we withhold weapons in this fight, the existential fight for the life of the Jewish state, it won’t send the wrong signal?”
  • GRAHAM: “If we stop weapons necessary to destroy the enemies of the State of Israel at a time of great peril, we will pay a price. This is obscene. It is absurd. Give Israel what they need to fight the war they can’t afford to lose.”
