The Wall Street Journal published an editorial opposing calls by dozens of high-ranking Democrats, including former Congressional Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to stop supplying American weapons to the Israeli military. The publication states, "Cutting off weapons to an ally in wartime would be the definition of betrayal."

The authors of the editorial note that throughout American military history, there have been instances where civilians died as a result of attacks. They remind readers that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) consistently conduct thorough investigations into such incidents, often leading to the resignation of those responsible.

The article asserts, "Democrats claim to have Israel's interests at heart, but only Israel itself can decide what is in its best interests." It criticizes the notion of cutting off arms supplies to an ally, suggesting it emboldens Hamas. The editorial emphasizes Hamas's use of civilians as human shields as the real cause of Palestinian suffering.
