Fetterman Slams Fellow Democrats for Failing to Condemn Iran for Attacking Israel

Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) has slammed his fellow Democrats over their silence in condemning the Islamic Republic of Iran’s unprecedented attack against Israel last weekend.

Fetterman slammed his Democrat colleagues for their refusal to condemn Iran for its attack on Israel.

Iran launched the missile and suicide drone attack in retaliation for the deadly bombing of its Syrian consulate earlier this month.

Israel has not claimed responsibility for the bombing in Syria, however.

In a post on X, Fetterman said:

“I sincerely thought I’d never witness members of my party refuse to condemn Iran – one of the world’s leading terrorism sponsors – after launching hundreds of drones against our special ally, Israel.”

“No words,” he added, sharing a screenshot blasting “far-left lawmakers.”

On Thursday, more than a dozen House Democrats voted against a resolution condemning Iran for firing a barrage of rockets at Israel over the weekend.

U.S. officials said 99% of those were intercepted.

The move, in retaliation for Israel’s attack on its consulate in Damascus, signified a major escalation of tensions amid Israel’s ongoing war with Hamas.

Despite decades of hostilities, Iran has never directly attacked Israel, instead relying on proxy forces in Iraq, Lebanon, and elsewhere.

Thursday’s resolution condemning Iran overwhelmingly passed 404 to 14.

Thirteen Democrats voted against the resolution including “Squad” member Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY); Rashida Tlaib (D-MI); Cori Bush (D-MO); Ilhan Omar (D-MN); Jamaal Bowman (D-NY); and Ayanna Pressley (D-MS).

Only one House Republican, Rep. Thomas Massive (R-KY), voted against the bill.

Israel’s war on Hamas began after the Iran-funded terror group invaded southern Israel on Oct. 7, 2023.

The assault killed more than 1,000 people.

The Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between terrorists and civilians, has claimed over 30,000 “Palestinians” have died in the months since.

Since Oct. 7, Fetterman has repeatedly irked his Democrat colleagues with his fervent support for Israel.

Earlier this week, Fetterman said he would never “capitulate to the fringe” of his party.

On Tuesday, he ripped pr-Hamas agitators who blocked bridges or major roadways.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but blocking a bridge or berating folks in Starbucks isn’t righteous, it just makes you an a—hole,” Fetterman wrote on X.

“Demand Hamas to send every hostage back home and surrender.”
