Cruz and Hagerty Land in Israel to Assess Damage from Hamas War:
Senators Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Bill Hagerty (R., Tenn.) landed in Israel on Sunday to assess the damage from the country’s most recent war with Hamas and meet with the Jewish state’s leaders.
The lawmakers—both members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee—will tour Israel’s southern cities, which were heavily targeted by Hamas, and sit down with Israeli leaders to reaffirm the Republican Party’s unwavering support for the security alliance with America.
The trip comes as Democrats in Congress are increasingly divided over U.S. support for Israel. Lawmakers on the Party’s left flank have repeatedly called for the Biden administration to freeze security aid to Israel and consider sanctioning the country for carrying out defensive strikes on Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip. Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and other members of the so-called Squad are attempting to push their colleagues into adopting their anti-Israel positions, a strategy that appears to be gaining ground as an increasing number of Democrats champion a wholesale reassessment of the historically bipartisan U.S.-Israel security alliance. --->READ MORE HERE

Ted Cruz Travels to Israel, Posts 'Heartbreaking' Photos of What Hamas Did to an Elderly Woman:
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz shared sobering images of a destroyed home in Israel that was allegedly bombed by Hamas, experiencing firsthand the importance of standing with Israel to protect its citizens against acts of terror.
Cruz traveled to Israel with Tennessee Republican Sen. Bill Hagerty on Sunday to visit damaged areas and to meet with Israeli leaders.
The senator wanted “to hear and see firsthand what our Israeli allies need to defend themselves, and to show the international community that we stand unequivocally with Israel,” Cruz said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon.
Referring to the situation as “heartbreaking,” Cruz posted an emotional series of pictures on Twitter of a house in Ashkelon where he said the caretaker of an elderly lady was killed by a Hamas rocket attack. --->READ MORE HERE
