Taking a jab at Israel, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham slammed Israel over its decision not to send weapons to Ukraine.

In an interview with Fox News, the South Carolina senator said, “They asked Israel — no bigger fan of Israel than Lindsey Graham — for stinger [missiles], and apparently Israel said no. So I’ll get on the phone to Israel. You know, we stand up for Israel with the Iron Dome.” He added, “Putin is a thug. He’s a war criminal. He’s destroying a sovereign nation called Ukraine. And if we don’t get Ukraine and Russia right, the Chinese are going to move on Taiwan and the Iranians gonna break out toward a bomb. So it’s in everybody’s interest” for Ukraine to be able to defend itself.”

He said in a Tweet, Very glad to see Israel will be supporting the UN resolution against Putin’s destruction of Ukraine. I was very disappointed to hear yesterday that Israel turned down a request to supply the Ukrainian military with Stinger missiles.” His tweet supported an article by the Times of Israel that noted Israel’s planned condemnation of Russia at the UN.
