(Daily Caller News Foundation) Nine Democrats voted against a resolution supporting Israel and condemning Hamas for the Oct. 7 terrorist attack by the radical Islamic terrorist group.
The House of Representatives passed the resolution, H. Res. 771, by a 412-10 vote with six members voting “present” on Wednesday. Democratic Reps. Jamaal Bowman, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Cori Bush, Al Green, Summer Lee, Delia Ramirez and Andre Carson voted against the measure.
“I cannot support a resolution that fails to acknowledge and mourn the lives of Palestinians taken by the Israeli military,” Omar posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Tlaib claimed that the resolution was “a deeply incomplete and biased account of what is happening in Israel and Palestine.”
Democratic Reps. Greg Cesar, Nydia Velazquez, Pramila Jayapal, Joaquin Castro, Ayanna Pressley and Jesus Garcia voted “present” on the resolution.
