ICYMI: Israel & Two-Faced Tammy Baldwin

MADISON, Wis. — In case you missed it, Senator Tammy Baldwin is desperately trying to present herself as pro-Israel, but Baldwin’s claims are proven meritless by her long record of aligning herself with anti-semitic organizations and turning a blind eye to Israel’s enemies. Here are just a few examples:

  • In a letter to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Baldwin thanked the organization for “its fight for civil discourse and civic engagement.” Following the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens, CAIR demanded that the United States betray its ally and smeared Israel as the actual aggressors.
  • Just two months ago, Baldwin met with Nadia Rahman, an activist who has falsely accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing”  and the United States of being complicit in Israel’s “war crimes.”
  • Baldwin supported the Obama Iran Nuclear Deal, claiming it would “best serve America’s national security interest.” And in 2021, she urged the Biden Administration to rejoin the agreement over the objections of Israel.
  • Baldwin voted against the Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act. 
  • In 2010, she was one of eight members of Congress who voted against the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act.
  • In 2011, Baldwin voted against the defense spending bill with new sanction tactics for Iran. And during her run for the Senate, Baldwin received $60,000 from a group opposed to Iranian sanctions. 

For over a decade, Baldwin has at best been a fairweather friend to Israel. At worst, she outright enabled Tehran and its affiliates to the detriment of a key American ally.

BOTTOM LINE: Empty words cannot undo Tammy Baldwin’s despicable track record of undermining Israel’s national security.
