Israeli foreign minister holds crisis talks with US after AOC and 'The Squad' force Dems to REMOVE $1BN for Israel's Iron Dome from spending bill: Republicans say hold-up is 'technical' and Dems have 'capitulated to antisemitic influence'

House Democrats removed a provision to give Israel $1 billion toward its Iron Dome defense system from the continuing resolution to keep the government open and funded past September 30 after opposition from the Squad.

The US was forced into crisis talks with Israel in the fallout, with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer reportedly telling Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid the removal of funds from the stopgap bill was only a 'technical delay.'

Hoyer told Lapid the money would be transferred 'in the near future.'
