Keating Plays Back-Bencher Despite Foreign Affairs Committee Assignment
Jesse Brown, candidate for US Congress, issued the following statement today regarding Congressman Bill Keating’s silence on the ongoing violence in the Middle East and efforts in Congress to oppose President Biden’s sale of arms to Israel:
“As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Congressman Keating should be speaking up loud and clear in support of America’s closest ally in the Middle East, Israel. Instead, he remains silent even as extremists in Congress try to undermine our efforts to supply Israel with the tools they need to defend themselves. It’s time for Keating to tell us whether he stands with Israel or with Hamas, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Bernie Sanders.”
- Despite The Crisis In the Middle East, Keating Has Been Silent. However, he did find time to tweet support for the Crimean Tatars, and 10 tweets on the 30-year-old Good Friday Agreement between Britain and Northern Ireland.
- Sen. Bernie Sanders and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mark Pocan and Rashida Tlaib Are Supporting A Resolution Disapproving Of The Biden Administration’s Sale Arms To Israel.
