Lieberman disagreed with lawmakers like Nancy Pelosi, who had called the comments an “act of courage.”

“I don’t think anything was brave about it… I think really it was a case of a high elected official in the U.S. taking advantage of a friend,” Lieberman said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

He claimed Schumer would not have said something similar to other U.S. allies.

“Can you imagine if Schumer had made a similar appeal to the people of Britain to overthrow Prime Minister [Rishi] Sunak for some reason, or the people of Ukraine to overthrow President [Volodymyr] Zelenskyy because he wasn’t making enough progress in the war?” Lieberman asked.

Lieberman added that Schumer’s comments crossed a diplomatic red line, and that Israeli citizens may view Netanyahu somewhat unfavorably, but are overwhelmingly supportive of his war against Hamas.

“So Chuck Schumer is asking the people of Israel to do something totally contrary to what their opinion is,” he said.

Just an overview, how the USA Government does everything to help the Hamas or Palestinian people against the Jewish people of Israel with the help of Netanyahu. 1. A port for the HAMAS KILLERS will be Built on Gaza by the USA. 2. The USA helped with the formation of the new so-called Palestinian government in Yehuda and Shomron and Gaza as part of the So-called Palestinian aspiration in the stolen land of the State of Israel.
3. USA does not send to us the required weapons as we requested .
The USA does everything in order to please Iran by doing nothing against them.
4. The USA does everything to teach ISRAEL and Netanyahu how to fight the war in order to loose the war and then we say Amen. ????
5. We fought the North of Gaza and then withdrew and the 300, 000 and HAMAS returned there. How many of our soldiers were killed there and what for??
6 The Cabinet war ministers Gantz and Eisenkot did everything to torpedo Netanyahu and the Israeli people to winning the war and visited the USA , without government approval. Traitors?
They do everything to have new elections and have the full agreement of the USA
