President Joe Biden has been accused of turning its back on Israel after the United States voted in absentia on the United Nation Security Council’s resolution demanding an “immediate ceasefire” in Israel’s operation against Hamas in Gaza.

Republican officials have blasted the Biden administration’s move, which increased tensions between the U.S. and Israel and prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pull out of a meeting between his advisers and White House officials over Israel’s planned incursion into Rafah, Hamas’ last stronghold.

In a post to X, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized the administration for refusing to veto the anti-Israel resolution, thereby facilitating its passage.

“Today, the Biden Administration Facilitated the passage of pro-Hamas United Nations Resolution. I am calling on the administration officials, including and especially State Department officials, to reverse these reckless and catastrophic policies. I will continue to hold them accountable until they do,” he wrote.

“President Biden’s lack of leadership and inaction at the UN are a disgrace. Instead of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our great ally, the Biden administration has undermined Israel and emboldened Hamas terrorists at every turn,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) wrote.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) also weighed in to slam the administration’s call as “unconscionable.”

“Why did the @HouseGOP just vote to fund the UN & Biden? Dunno – ask the @wsj… I’m sure they can explain it…,” he wrote.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) dedicated two tweets to condemning the administration’s move.

In the first, he wrote, “Immediately after 10/7, President Biden defended Israel. But it was just words from a failed politician. After a few bad polls, he has decided to throw Israel under the bus.”

“It’s disgraceful that Biden’s entire electoral strategy relies on his Department of Justice prosecuting Donald Trump. More befitting of a banana republic than America,” he wrote in another post.

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) defended Israel’s right to defend itself, writing, “REMINDER: Hamas terrorists slaughtered THOUSANDS of innocents, committed heinous war crimes, & are STILL doing so to this day. Israel has EVERY RIGHT to defend itself,” he tweeted.
