Cruz Condemns Iranian Attack on Israel, Slams Biden

By    |   Saturday, 13 April 2024 08:31 PM EDT

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas has released a statement condemning Saturday's attack on Israel by Iran and put some of the blame on the Biden administration's "policy choices."

"Iran has encircled Israel and has been attacking our Israeli allies from almost every front for months. They have launched attacks from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, the West Bank, Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon, and of course the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Now they have escalated by launching attacks directly from Iranian territory," Cruz's statement began.

Cruz also slammed the Biden administration in his statement condemning the fiscal relief that he says enabled Iran to carry out Saturday's assault saying, "These attacks are enabled and financed by deliberate policy choices made by Joe Biden and Biden officials, who have allowed roughly $100 billion to flow to Iran since 2021. Americans and Israelis have been made catastrophically more vulnerable by these policies."

At approximately 4:30 p.m. ET in the United States, Iran launched the first in a wave of drone attacks in retaliation for the killing Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a top Iranian Quds Force general in charge of Iran's military operations in Lebanon and Syria. In response, Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed revenge for the strike and threatened to attack Israel directly.

Cruz ended his statement by confirming America's commitment to Israel, "Nevertheless, there is no doubt that Iran has made a huge mistake in attacking America's closest ally in the Middle East. Israel will emerge from this crisis stronger. As I have always done, I stand with Israel to do whatever it takes to defend itself."
