On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, President Biden and Antony Blinken keep pouring billions and billions of dollars into Iran, who are using that money to produce weapons and oil for Russia and China while also funding terrorist organizations like Hamas. 90 Democrats joined Republicans in passing a bill that will prohibit U.S. funding to Iranian terrorism, and now it is in the hands of Mitch McConnell and Republicans in the Senate to force the bill. We will not see people like Bernie Sanders taking the lead on this legislation which would protect Israel because they are Democrat Marxists and hate Israel. Sadly, we need a vote in Congress to stop the Biden Administration from funding and arming our enemy. The greatest enemy that Israel faces today is the Biden Administration, which is preventing them from defeating and destroying Hamas. Biden and Blinken are demanding Israel not to engage in air attacks and making ridiculous demands to prevent civilian deaths, while at the same time ignoring the civilians killed by Hamas and others used as human shields. Later, Mark speaks with Dr. Yechiel Leiter, father of Moshe, a Major in the Israel Defense Force (Airforce special ops) and father of six, who was killed on November 10 while leading a commando unit of reservists against Hamas-ISIS terror installations in Gaza.

Rough transcription of Hour 1
Hello America, Mark Levin here. Our number 87738138118773813811. Hostage families warn of Hamas raping. I don’t have any more information than that. I want to thank the Yoli for sitting in last night. Don’t get this thing licked yet, but I’m getting there now. Something’s breaking as they come on the air here. As you know, Biden and Blinken keep pouring billions and billions and billions more into the coffers of these Islamo Nazi regime in Tehran. They only had $4 billion on hand when Donald Trump left office. Now they have tens of billions. And they’re using that money. To produce weapons for Russia. They’re selling their oil mostly to China. And they’re making tens of billions of dollars. For which they are funding terrorism against Israel, terrorism against the United States, terrorism against anybody that doesn’t agree with them. And, of course. Funding the attacks on American forces overseas for which they’re not paying any prices. Well. I’ve been saying over and over again, it’s time for the Republicans, particularly in the House, to do something about it. And they have an excellent speaker of the House. Quite frankly, it’s a good man. They’ve tried to destroy him. Have the media because he’s a faithful Christian, he’s a born again Christian. And you know, if you’re born again Christian or you’re an Orthodox Jew or you’re a faithful Catholic, you’re religious extremist. This coming from the Marxists and the other reprobates in the media. But the vote in the House just now was 307 to 119 one present eight not voting. On House Bill 5961. Titled No Funds for Iranian Terrorism Act. 90 Democrats join the Republicans now. What’s interesting is that means over 120 Democrats voted against it. But 90 is a big number, I suppose. And that 307, that’s a significant majority. So now this bill goes immediately to the United States Senate. We’re Chuck Schumer. Is in control. Of the daily agenda. Whether votes are scheduled or not. Now, obviously, the Republicans in the Senate have some power, too. They can shut that damn place down until there’s a vote on this thing. They certainly can, and they must. They’ve got to show some strength, for God’s sakes. I mean, the house can’t do all the lifting under our system. It’s one part of the bicameral Congress. And if it got to the floor, I’m sure it would pass. But what this does is, among other things. It exposes the Hamas wing of the Democrat Party and it exposes those who have moral integrity and those who don’t. Chuck Schumer gave this speech the other day, and I’ll talk about this because it’s not what it’s all. Said to be. Now it’s time to act. He’s the majority leader. He’s Jewish. He’s from New York. He made that clear in his speech. He said his fellow travelers partly responsible for anti-Semitism, its amazing use as a marxist phrase producers, fellow travelers. But nonetheless. We salute him for that little piece of the speech. Doesn’t call out anybody by name. Nobody. Doesn’t condemn the administration for not taking forceful action against anti-Semitism where it can. College campuses in universities, Oh, it’s picking one off here and there. No presidential speech about it. Nothing. We haven’t even heard from the attorney general. More on that later. So this now is in the Senate. It’s on Schumer’s desk. And what’s he going to do about it? And what are the Republicans going to do to force action on this? Michael Johnson, the speaker of the House, the Republican, he’s already brought it up. They voted on it. It’s now in the Senate. And this would also stop Biden from giving Iran sanctions relief, including that $10 billion and the $6 billion earlier. And any future moneys. Now think about this. Why do we even need a vote in Congress to tell the administration to stop doing this? I mean, should they be stopping it on their own? They’re not required to do this. So Congress has to tell the administration to cut it out. Arming our enemy. I don’t know of another president in American history that armed our enemy. It is insanity. They’re sabotaging the American people. They’re sabotaging Israel while they’re trying to put a jackboot on Israel’s throat. That’s right. I said it. The greatest enemy Israel faces today is the Biden administration. Why? Because they can defeat Hamas. It can defeat Hezbollah. It can defeat Iran if it has to. But it can’t do those things. If the United States piles one condition after another on top of it is funding our enemies and their enemies to the tunes of tens of billions of dollars. You can’t have an ally that hugs you. Who gives you the bear hug, as they say? We stand with Israel, we stand. There’s nothing major. But when we strongly go get him, go get him. And then days later, they’re stabbing him in the back. Now this legislation is in the Senate. Which senators are going to take the lead. Which senators are going to get on the floor and demand a vote. I tell you what’s amazing to me. Schumer is not leading the fight. Bernie Sanders isn’t leading the fight. Why? I’ve explained this in the last few days. About how certain Jews view themselves as purely ethnic Jews. The very little connection to Orthodox Jews. Or Jews that follow the Torah much more closely than they do. They have almost nothing in common with them. View them as kind of radical, kind of weird kind of extremists. That’s why Thomas Friedman is constantly trashing religious Jews in Israel. He’s the columnist for The New York Times that gets Pulitzer Prizes for publishing fiction. He’s a buffoon. Bernie Sanders is a marxist. You can’t be a marxist and believe in the Torah. You can’t be a marxist and really believe in the Bible because Marx says burn all those things. But I saw a a reporter the other day refer to Bernie Sanders and all the sanctions effectively he wants to play. So NEWSROOM reminded us and he’s a Jewish senator. My point is this. When I read what Mike Lee posts. And so when I read what Tom Cotton posts and says. One from Utah, one from Arkansas. How many Jews are in those states? Seven. I really don’t know. I’m just making a point. When righteous Gentiles are taking the lead in the United States Senate. That tells you a lot about the Democrat Party and the Marxist left. But it also tells you about the fantastic. Conservatives that we have in Congress. They’re not the only ones. Lee is an example, constant example. They support Israel more than Thomas Friedman. They support Israel more than Anthony Blinken. They support Israel, certainly more than Bernie Sanders. It’s amazing, isn’t it? And they support Israel more than Chuck Schumer. You know, Chuck Schumer’s a fraud and a phony and a fake. He votes against the Iran deal. And yet, as the Democrat leader under Obama, he’s behind the scenes pushing everybody else to vote for it. What kind of a sleazeball does that? Chuck Schumer. That’s what kind of sleazeball. And he waited a long time to give that speech. Long time. More on that later. So there it is. The legislation sits. It’s in the Senate now. And what are they going to do about it? This is something you and I have been calling for. This is something you and I have been pushing. Well, the Republicans in Congress do. Okay. Mike Johnson, the speaker and the Republicans acted. They got 90 Democrats to go along. Now, what are you going to do about it? What’s Bernie Sanders going to do about it? Bernie Sanders hates Israel. Hates it. He’s the Talib of the U.S. Senate. He is. There’s not a communist regime on the face of the earth that at one time or another Bernie Sanders didn’t support. So there that bill sits. Let’s see what happens in the Senate. We have a killer couple of shows this week, and we really, really do. And I know many of you are going to be busy, but can I encourage you, Entice you, persuade you? To watch Saturday night’s show, 8 p.m. Eastern Time, Life, Liberty and Livin on Fox, where General Keane and Senator Tom Cotton and my face say to myself, my killer opening statement. And they are fantastic. And if you’re going to be busy. You can set your DVR. It’s very simple. You can record on your smart TV. It’s very simple. And same with sun. Where we have former ambassador from the United States to his role under Donald Trump. David Freeman, former congressman and Republican candidate for governor of New York, Lee Zeldin. And again. My opening statement. I want you to know something. Nobody writes anything for him. Mr. Producer, open the phone. Open your microfilm. Do you write anything for me? Not a thing. Any of my comments, any of my opening statement, anything. And now Mr. Producer is the best in the business. He’s my executive. He works very, very hard. He finds these clips and so forth. I send them clips to I decide what I’m going to keep. Not he really is the best. He’s been with me since day one, and I’m a very lucky person. But on TV, you see these guys looking at monitors. I don’t have what do they call those monitors? People read. I don’t even remember the name of them. Teleprompters. You know, Biden can’t even get it right on the teleprompter. I don’t have teleprompters. I monitors, but they have pictures not. You know who the guest is or something like that. So I take notes of myself, or if I read something, I hold up the document or from my book or a book or something, or I’ll just speak to you. Everything you hear from me is from me. But I’ll give you the example because many people ask me about behind the scenes stuff. To the extent I can tell you, I will tell you this. When I prepare for my Saturday and Sunday Fox shows, I spend hours gathering research. I want to be accurate. I know so many of you take the time to watch. You have a right to accurate information. 95% of it doesn’t make it on the air because I don’t have the time. But if I’m going to do a show, let’s say I tape a show at noon, I’m up at 630 working on it. I don’t want a pat on the back. I just want you to know I put an effort into this. Radio. This program Eastern Time comes on at six. I’m prepping for this show morning, noon and night, Mr. Producers, catching my emails, catching my comments left and right all day long. This is a 24 seven to me obligation that I have. I might even say blessing that I have. And particularly at times like this, when the world is on the brink, when the world is on the edge. It is not the time to skate. And, you know, I don’t have any the last ten or 12 days have been miserable for me. They say it’s not cold, it’s not. So maybe it’s this China stuff. I don’t know what the hell it is, but it’s been brutal. And it pains me to have missed last night’s program, but it pains me. But I’m not going to sit here and hacking cough on the microphone all night long and turn you off anyway. It’s very important to circle back. You make it clear to your senators that you expect a vote on this bill and you want it to be sent to Biden and it’s time to push back. It’s time to draw lines and it’s time to take back our foreign policy. I’ll be right back.
You know, it’s amazing. Ladies and gentlemen, Blinken is every bit as sleazy as I’ve been saying for weeks. Is every bit as sleazy as John McCain said several years ago on the floor of the Senate? When he goes to the Middle East, he doesn’t go there to help Israel. He goes there to undermine Israel when he’s meeting with Arab countries of the PLO. That’s why he’s there. And so he meets with the Israeli cabinet. They called the war cabinet, but the Israeli cabinet. The secretary of state who’s elected by nobody and apparently reports to nobody. He’s calling the shots pretty much. The secretary of state, Blinken, who works very closely with Obama. Notice how Obama’s been very quiet lately. The secretary of state, who was Obama’s deputy secretary of state. That is Blinken. And he brings in Jake Sullivan, who also worked on the Biden campaign. And Blinken and Sullivan were responsible for that letter. Remember, by the so-called 51 experts that the Hunter Biden laptop was actually Russian disinformation. Those people. Well, I want to tell you what happened in this war meeting, in this cabinet, meeting with Blinken when we return.
You know this John Karl’s really kind of a PUK guy who works at ABC. He’s a dork. He was writing books about Trump. If you’re a real reporter and you’re breaking news, then break it. But these reporters live off of Donald Trump. They actually grift off at Donald Trump. All right, let me move on. So there’s. BLINKEN Right. There he is in the meeting, calls a meeting. He wants to meet with Netanyahu and his war cabinet. And this is from the Times of Israel. According to leaked remarks from today’s warrant Cabinet meeting attended by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. First of all, think about that. Here have a guy who’s really accomplished nothing in his life except. Went to a poison Ivy League school. Worked on Capitol Hill for Biden for years, was appointed by Obama to a top job, was appointed by Blinken to the top job. But what is the guy ever done? So. Here’s what Blinken told Israel. It cannot operate in southern Gaza in the way it has done in the north. In other words, it won in the north and is winning in the north. They can’t win in the south. A presumed reference to the heavy air bombardment and crushing ground operation and indicated that Israel has weeks, not months, to complete its declared mission of destroying Hamas. Let me see if I understand you have weeks, not months. You must not destroy the southern part of Gaza. You must therefore only do a ground operation, which of course exposes more and more of your IDF soldiers, these young men and women, most of whom are not regular military. You mustn’t hurt any citizens. Even though Hamas uses their citizens and war crimes to protect themselves. You mustn’t use any air power, which gives you a significant step up. Against Hamas. Yet the fight on their territory. Urban warfare. Street to street. Room to room. God knows how many explosives and other things are there. They have tunnels everywhere. So you, the Israeli Jews, this is how we demand that you fight and get it over in weeks. And if you win, should you win, then get the hell out of there. And we, the United States, are going to give that land as well as Judea and Samaria, about a fourth or a third of the of the ground of the of the landmass of Israel. Your ancestral home sits right there in the Bible. Go look, we’re going to give it to these people. And we’re going to make the false distinction between the PLO that was founded by Arafat, a terrorist and, of course, Hamas. So you do your thing. But this is the consequence of the attack on October seven. You’re going to lose your country. You’re going to lose your ability to defend yourself. And whatever you do, don’t kick Hamas’s ass. It goes on. The US administration has repeatedly backed Israel’s goal of eliminating Hamas in the wake of the terror group’s October seven slaughter. 1200 Israelis. But as indicated, he is increasingly troubled by the civilian fatalities and widespread destruction of the Hamas run strip. See, the Times of Israel is actually quite a left wing outfit. When CNN and the Biden White House. Tried, but failed, of course. So proposed a smear me as an anti-Semite. They went along with it. But of course it’s the anti-Semites who plant that kind of stuff. Civilians. When’s the last time Jake TAPPER talked about the civilians being murdered in Iran? When’s the last time Jake TAPPER talked about the civilians being murdered in Yemen? When’s the last time Jake TAPPER talked about the civilians? The week is being murdered in China. When’s the last time Jake TAPPER talked about the civilians being murdered in Turkey? When’s the last time Jake TAPPER talked about the civilians being murdered by other Muslims? And compare that to the number of times he brings up Israel and civilians. Oh. And when’s the last time Jake TAPPER talked about all the Americans dying from Biden’s policies on the southern border? They don’t care about civilians. He’s reported. This is so predictable, so predictable. I predicted it. But here’s what took place. BLINKEN Quote, You can’t operate in southern Gaza in the way you did in the north. There are 2 million Palestinians there. You need to evacuate fewer people from their homes. Be more accurate in the attacks, not hit U.N. facilities, and ensure that there are enough protected areas for civilians. And if not, then not to attack where there is a civilian population. What is your system of operation? Let’s break this down. The Egyptians will not allow the Palestinians to leave. Where’s all the pressure on Egypt? In the Times of Israel and Axios on CNN. Anywhere? Almost none. Zero. So the Egyptians literally get away with all this murder taking place. The pressure’s on Israel, even though Israel’s the one that attacked. Jordan, which used to be the homeland of most of these Palestinians, at least historically, they’re not going to take a single one. And Jordan’s not being pressured to take any. So is boxed in. Look, you can defeat Hamas, but here’s the conditions. He can’t defeat Hamas. Why do I say that? There is no way that they can destroy Hamas when the Hamas Nazis are now among the population of the south part of Gaza. When they’re being told that you can’t hit U.N. facilities like like they’re trying to hit U.N. facilities, they’re told not to hit infrastructure. Okay, so where are you going to find Hamas terrorists among the civilians at the U.N., buildings in the hospitals, in the infrastructure. So Israel’s being told effectively you can’t win. And then Blinken has the temerity to say, and what is your system of operation? This is a sovereign nation, Israel. This is an elected democratic government, the only one in the Middle East. The only one. But they hate Netanyahu, so they consider him illegitimate. They hate him as much as they hate Trump. Why? Because he stands up to them. He stood up to Obama. They need to get him out of the way. In order to accomplish their their mission, which is to empower Iran, create a so-called balance in the Middle East. Weaken Israel. I know. It’s insane. They’re insane. So IDF Chief Herzog Halevi response says, We follow a number of principles proportionality, distinction, and the laws of war. There were instances where we attacked on the basis of those principles and instances where we decided not to attack because we waited for a better opportunity. Defense Minister Yoav Gallant adds The entire Israeli society is united behind the goal of dismantling Hamas, even if it takes months. Blinken I don’t think you have the credit for that. The secretary also reportedly pressed the cabinet over Israel’s plans for a post-war guy. One of the reasons they want the quote unquote, credit for it is because Blinken has undermined them. He goes to these Arab countries, he goes to the PLO, he speaks to his European buddies. And he’s organizing them. He’s trying to unite them against Israel to end their war on Hamas. And to agree to have their country carved up afterwards. Think about how insane this is and think about how. Saboteur like Blinken is. The secretary also reportedly pressed the cabinet over Israel’s plans for a post-war Gaza. BLINKEN You don’t want the Palestinian Authority on the day after. We understand that. But the best way to kill an idea is to bring a better idea. The other states in the region need to know what you’re planning. So Israel stuff, I can you imagine during World War Two, some country coming to the United States and saying, we need to know what you’re planning. All these other countries want to know. And and by the way, do not touch the you know, Heidelberg did not touch Frankfurt then. And I don’t do that if you’re going to do it. No bombing, you know, man to man combat. That’s it. Hand to hand, man to man combat. Can you imagine? And then Prime Minister Netanyahu speaks up. It says, quote, As long as I’m sitting in this chair, the Palestinian Authority, which supports, educates and finances terror, will not rule Gaza. On the day after Hamas. Period. Think about that. He’s in there as a special pleader for Hamas. Imagine that. Mr.. It is. He’s in there as a special pleader for Iran. He won’t even defend our military personnel in the region. It’s pretty shocking. And then the constant condescending. Lectures in public about Israel and citizens. They don’t care about the death of citizens any more than Jake TAPPER does. He doesn’t talk about the Middle East and all the people being slaughtered in the Middle East. How about all the people being slaughtered in the Middle East before October seven? They’re funding Iran, which is slaughtering its own citizens. We talk about Hamas as a terrorist operation, killing its own citizens, using its own cells, suggesting committing war crimes. We’re funding them to run the U.N. and again, through Hamas, through Iran. What about the citizens dying in Yemen as a result of Iran? Why are we still funding Iran? Once again, the greatest danger the Israelis face right now is the Biden regime. They are on a glide path, not an easy one, to destroying Hamas. They’re being told they must not. That’s what all these conditions are about. That’s what all these conditions are about. They know that the United States supplies Israel with so many of these weapons. And they’re using it to blackmail and threaten Israel to sit in their war cabinet meetings. To demand to know how they’re going to proceed one step after the other. The Israeli leadership must be sitting there grinding their teeth. Chewing on nails. What the hell is this? Obama’s back. His sync offense are back. And I explain on Saturday’s opening statement, which is why I certainly hope you’ll watch. Why this is the case. Why this is the case, why this is the attitude. And I think when you’re done listening to it, you’ll see. Well, nobody said this before, but he’s 100% right. Trust me on this. I’ll be right back.
Anthony Blinken at a press conference today. Cut three Go. But as I’ve also said since I first came here after October seven, the way Israel defends itself matters. It’s imperative that Israel act in accordance with international humanitarian law and the laws of war. Shut up, you A-hole. What? You’re condescending. Obnoxious. Constant lectures to the state of Israel that suffered this horrendous attack. That suffers horrendous attacks every day, like in Jerusalem at a bus stop, civilians minding their own business. Two Palestinian terrorists come opened fire, murder three of them, injure six others. Israelis don’t want to hear your crap, and neither do most Americans. You unleashed Iran, you unleashed Hamas, you’re unleashing Hezbollah. You unleashed these terrorists. Now you’re promising them more benefits their own country if you rearmed Iran. You’ve got nothing to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. You are a sick S.O.B. Take your ideology and shove it when the sun doesn’t shine. And stop going overseas to where these people have suffered and tell them that they have to be careful and follow the rules of law. Let me tell you something, you dumb. Let me tell you something. If Israel wasn’t following the rules of war. Israelis would have raped their way, decapitated babies their way. Mass slaughtered and burned alive Palestinians their way to defeating. Hamas. They haven’t done any of that and they never would. It wouldn’t even occur to them. Stop lecturing. These ethical and moral people about being ethical and moral. When you have blood on your hands, you so be you and your damnable policies. Stop blackmailing them. Stop threatening them. Stop organizing the Arab and Muslim world against them. You and Obama. And Sullivan. And Biden. And the rest of the reprobates. There was peace in our time right there in the Middle East. Peace was breaking out left and right. Arab countries lining up. Bad diplomatic relations with Israel, thanks to Donald Trump, who they’re trying to put in prison for the rest of his life. And you went there, U.S. Opie, and you set the whole region on fire. You and Blinken and Manley, the whole crowd. The Obama team now. The Biden team. Their arsonist. They set that whole part of the world on fire. And now they blame Israel. They pressure Israel. Israel has to give up a third of its country. Israel has to give up its ancestral homeland, where Judaism was born in Judea and Samaria, and give them to the moderate Palestinians who’ve been slaughtering Jews there for more than half a century. This is insanity. This guy is a punk. He’s a no nothing sanctimonious punk. That’s what he is. McCain was right, and I’m right. I’ll be right back.
