US House speeches on Gaza expose growing rift in Democratic party on Israel

 Nearly two dozen Democrats took to the floor of the US House of Representatives on Thursday to give impassioned speeches reacting to the ongoing violence in Gaza and Israel.

The hour-long salvo of brief addresses exposed the growing rift in the Democratic party between increasingly popular progressive lawmakers and more moderate representatives with closer ties to the Biden administration, with the former bloc taking a much more critical approach to Israel than the latter, which gave impassioned speeches offering unwavering support for the Jewish state.
