A rights group in the United States Democracy for the Arab World Now (DAWN) has raised alarm over President Joe Biden’s request for $14bn in funding for Israel, noting that the push contains language that suggests efforts to remove Palestinians from Gaza.


Republican lawmakers, under newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson, introduced a bill that separates aid for Israel from assistance for Ukraine.


Moreover, the Republican bill will offset the Israel aid by slashing funding from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)


Several Democrats have voiced opposition to the Republican proposal, suggesting that the two parties will need to compromise to push forward any legislation for aid money.
