The anti-Israel minority in Congress failed to reduce support for Israel, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on the tarmac at Ben-Gurion Airport ahead of his trip to the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday night. Bennett called the vote in the US House of Representatives on Thursday to provide $1bn. to replenish batteries for the Iron Dome missile defense system, with 420 in favor and nine opposed, an "important moment."

"We saw that in the moment of truth, the representatives of the American People overwhelmingly supported Israel," he said. In reference to the left-wing "squad" of members of Congress, which led to the postponement of the Iron Dome vote earlier last week, Bennett added: "There's a small anti-Israel group that makes a lot of noise, but those guys failed." At the UN, Bennett said that he would "bring the voice of Israelis." "This is an opportunity to tell our story...of Israel's special spirit and our contribution to the world," he stated.
