Pro-Israel Groups’ Strategy

After Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack on Israel, pro-Israel political groups warned the Democratic Party’s critics of Israel about upcoming spending to either unseat them or change their stance on the Middle East. Despite significant funds raised, the spending has been limited.

Challenges Faced

Representative Summer Lee of Pittsburgh, a vocal critic of Israel, was expected to be a target of this spending. However, she will face only nominal opposition in the Pennsylvania primary due to challenges in recruiting a strong challenger. The shifting politics around Israel, especially after the recent events in Gaza, have also influenced the strategy of pro-Israel groups.

Changing Dynamics

The dynamics surrounding Israel have shifted in Democratic primaries, with a noticeable increase in support for the Palestinian cause. The recent conflict in Gaza has led to a significant loss of life among Palestinians, influencing the views of Democratic leaders. This shift was evident when 37 House Democrats opposed providing military aid to Israel.

House Speaker Mike Johnson addressed the press following the passage of foreign aid bills.
