Schumer shifts gears, vows support for Israel weeks after calling for regime change

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) seems to have shifted his position on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after Iran attacked the Jewish nation.

On Saturday, the terrorist regime unleashed a barrage of kamikaze drones and missiles in a move that could further escalate tensions within the Islamic world and potentially lead to a wider war, dragging the U.S. into the conflict.

In a post to the X platform that was slammed by users, the New York Democrat pledged the nation’s support for Israel, only weeks after he demanded regime change in Tel Aviv as the war in Gaza is costing President Joe Biden politically with the party’s anti-Semitic base.

“As Israel is under attack from Iran, we stand with Israel and its people, and the United States will do everything we can to support Israel’s defense against Iran,” Schumer wrote.

“As a lifelong supporter of Israel, it has become clear to me: The Netanyahu coalition no longer fits the needs of Israel after October 7,” Schumer said last month in a shameless speech from the Senate floor. “The world has changed radically since then, and the Israeli people are being stifled right now by a governing vision stuck in the past.”

“At this critical juncture, I believe a new election is the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel, at a time when so many Israelis have lost their confidence in the vision and direction of their government,” he added, an unprecedented call from the top congressional Democrat for the toppling of the leader of one of the nation’s key allies in the middle of the war.

Schumer was excoriated over the about face after his meddling in Israeli politics to pander to Michigan Muslims who threatened to abandon Biden.

Scheming Schumer always sees an angle and tacking on some money for Israel will make it easier to get the stalled $60 billion giveaway to Ukraine unstuck in Congress this week.
