Biden Admin Threatens to Stop Weapon Supplies to Israel

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – When images of National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir handing out rifles to “community security squads” surfaced, the Biden administration became enraged.

Ben Gvir’s social media accounts shared pictures of the firearms being distributed, which “led to a diplomatic incident that threatened to stop the arms shipments from the United States to Israel.”

According to reports, the Biden administration opposes the distribution of firearms to the general public or to “political events.”

Haaretz noted, “The [Biden Administration] also threatened to halt an order of some 20,000 rifles purchased by the National Security Ministry from American suppliers.”

Photos showed Ben Gvir “distributing the arms at political events in Bnei Brak and El’ad, two towns near Tel Aviv,” according to The Telegraph.

The Telegraph reported that photos showed Ben Gvir “distributing the arms at political events in Bnei Brak and El’ad, two towns near Tel Aviv.”

A social media user posted the tweet below, which translates: “National Security Minister of Israel Itamar Ben Gvir distributing arms to civilians. Here [in Brazil] the order is to disarm the civilian and arm the criminal.”

The Times of Israel reported on October 10, 2023, that Ben Gvir’s ministry was purchasing 10,000 weapons to equip civilian security forces, particularly those in villages near Israel’s borders nationwide.

The low rate of individual gun ownership among Israelis was highlighted by Breitbart News on October 8, 2023, the day following the beginning of the Hamas terror strike against Israel.

Israel does not have the Second Amendment or anything similar, in contrast to the United States.

“Israeli gun ownership is low, at about 2% of the population,” the BBC stated. On the other hand, according to a recent survey conducted by the New Jersey Gun Violence Research Center at Rutgers University, up to 60% of Americans, or six out of 10, are gun owners.

Many families were either murdered or taken hostage by Hamas terrorists:

Israel accelerated the gun license application process in the wake of the terror attacks to enable Israelis to get firearms for self-defense and Israel’s defense.

The next time someone asks why we need the 2nd Amendment, this is why.
