Full List of Representatives Who Voted Against Funding Israel’s Iron Dome

Only nine people in the entire Congress, with 535 members, are not fully in thrall to Israel.

The House of Representatives approved funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system on Thursday, following a fraught vote that exposed divisions among Democrats.

Just nine members of the House voted “nay” to the $1 billion in funding—eight Democrats and one Republican—and the measure was approved by 420 votes to 9, with two members voting “present.”

Though the final result was decisive and bipartisan, the debate on the House floor proved contentious as Representative Rashida Tlaib accused Israel of being an “apartheid state,” earning a strong rebuke from fellow Democratic Representative Ted Deutch.
