Defend their people and prevent another Attack like this one and that's exactly What the Supple bental provides with 3.7 Billion for security needs including to Help Israel bolster its air and missile Defense systems the supplemental also Requests additional authority to draw Down DOD stocks and enhances the Security of our Embassy as President Biden has made clear from the outset While Israel has the right indeed it has The obligation to defend itself the way It does so matters in our discussions With the Israeli government the President and I have both stressed the Need for Israel to operate by the Why AR we handing and arresting Them let them be at the table why aren't They at the table St fire now I beg you St fire now secretary blink you may Continue thank you thank you chair so I Was saying the president and I have both Stressed in our conversations with the Israeli government the need for Israel To operate by the law of war and in Accordance with International Humanitarian law and to take all Possible measures to avoid civilian Casualties for Ukraine President Biden Is requesting 16.3 billion to supply Ukraine's defense without which Russia Will move quickly to try to seize and Exploit any possible opening and to Ensure that Ukraine can sustain the

The secretaries are going to say well I Thought that I thought that they were Actually letting him speak about Ukraine And would get back into the protest when He got back to Israel but I guess they Decided to uh to do it at that moment And again the fact that they're all Standing up now holding signs and Chanting that means they're all go to Get tossed out well also the other thing Is That they Are not they're interrupting obviously The the hearing it will get underway we Will provide you that information as Soon as we can but for the ones that are Sitting John that are not standing up Disrupting I don't know if they can Bounce them but we can imagine that this Is going to take a while because after These guys get taken out those guys are Going to stand up after the secretary Says five words yeah I guess you know Just holding up your hands quietly uh You're okay you're within the rules but When you stand up and you hold a sign And then you start chanting that's well They also get cameras right so another Reason that they are doing this is Because there is news this this is Happening so you have photo journalists There taking the pictures and it's one Of the things that these protesters want More photographs of themselves that they

Can put on social media yeah so as this Is taking place in the Senate at the Same time over in the house they're uh Undertaking a measure to delink the Money from Ukraine for Ukraine from Money to Israel Mike Johnson putting Forward a bill uh for about a little More than 14 billion in direct Aid to Israel and then leaving the question of Aid to Ukraine on the sidelines for the Moment but blink and Lloyd Austin will Be making the point at this hearing that The two should be linked together as the President has requested some 109 billion Dollars in Aid
