Amid political tensions over Israel's handling of the conflict with Hamas, Democratic Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri is joining forces with members of Congress who are facing backlash for their stance.

protect your squad” campaign hopes to raise $100 million in an effort to confront rival race runners that is supported and funded by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC.

President Bush emphasized the need for Americans to stand up and advocate for peaceful solutions amid escalating violence. Her comments came as part of a broader discussion about the influence of organizations such as AIPAC on progressive lawmakers who are critical of Israeli policies.

“Let me be clear: the collective punishment of Palestinians in Gaza is a war crime,” President Bush insisted. “And it's not just happening before our eyes, it's happening with the help and power of the U.S. government. And it's shameful.”

AIPAC and other Republican megadonors include Bush, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Jamal Bowman (D.Y.), Rep. Summer Lee (Pa.), and Rashida, D-Mich. Congressman Treib. The “squad” is gathering to fight back funding By April 30th, we will strategically time our preliminary matches against AIPAC-supported opponents. The commission was filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission.

Mr. Bush faces a tough primary race against Wesley Bell in Missouri's St. Louis County District 1, with a February poll from Remington Research Group giving him a 22-point lead. Bell is backed by the Israel Democratic Majority PAC and has a narrow lead in fundraising by more than $5,000.

Meanwhile, Mr. Tlaib and Mr. Omar are thriving financially. Tlaib, the only Palestinian-American member of Congress, said: $3.7 million The total in the fourth quarter of last year was comparable to that of Senate candidates, according to FEC filings. She said she is standing by her colleagues in support of their races.

“Please join me in supporting my colleagues who are standing up,” Tlaib urged. “I got a call into my office saying they're under attack right now. To get a peace-loving solution to violence, we need to hear from the American people who know this is the solution.” There is.”

All five members of the splinter Democratic Party condemned Hamas's October 7 attack. But their criticism of U.S. military aid to Israel and of U.S. support for Israel's fighting in Gaza is seen as inflammatory by Israel supporters. Mr. Traib also reportedly has $3.8 million in cash on hand.
