In a stunning turn of events, Democratic Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) has openly criticized President Joe Biden for his weak stance on Israel’s recent conflict with Iran. Fetterman appeared on CNN over the weekend and slammed the Biden administration for “not standing firmly with Israel” as Iran launched a massive attack on the country.

Fetterman’s comments are a rare instance of a Democrat openly disagreeing with the Biden administration’s policies. He criticized the president for not supporting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to retaliate against Iran for their aggressive actions.

“It’s astonishing that we are not standing firmly with Israel, and there should never be any kind of conditions and all that,” Fetterman argued. He went on to say that he supported Israel’s right to defend itself and even applauded their recent strike against an Iranian general in Syria.

Fetterman’s comments reflect a growing concern among many Republicans and conservatives who feel that the Biden administration has not been supportive enough of Israel. It was reported that President Biden told Netanyahu on Saturday that the United States would not support Israeli counterattacks against Iran.

Fetterman, like many Republicans, strongly disagrees with this stance. “I don’t agree with that,” he stated. “And I just think we should follow and have Israel’s back in this situation. I don’t agree with the president.”

The senator also expressed frustration that the media is not reporting more on the hostages being held by Hamas, a terrorist organization supported by Iran.

“They think they’re going to hold on to the very end,” he said. “And I know why they’re not willing to provide any kind of proof of life. And I don’t know why there’s not more of that conversation in the media. Like, what about the hostages? What’s happened to them? Where are they now? And let’s just bring them home.”

Fetterman’s criticism of the Biden administration’s handling of the situation is a reminder that many Democrats are not in line with the party’s far-left agenda. He made it clear that he would not “pander to the fringe” and that he stands with Israel in this conflict.
