Which Senate Republicans are the best for Israel?

Cotton Club member Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Wednesday joined the chorus of critics of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) over the Senate’s recent decision to advance a bill that would allow the government to block Israeli-Palestinian efforts to reach a two-state solution by blocking all payments and economic aid.

In a blog post, Cotton wrote that the bill, which passed the Senate on Tuesday with support from 67 senators, is “not in the interests of the Jewish state, and it’s not in the interest of the American people.”

“It’s not just that it’s a bad idea; it’s that it gives Israel leverage to stop the peace process and the negotiations from reaching an acceptable resolution,” Cotton wrote.

“The Israeli-American lobby, which has a powerful lobbying presence in Washington, is not the only lobby that has used its power to block the peace negotiations.

They have also spent tens of millions of dollars in direct lobbying efforts to defeat the resolution in the Senate.”

The legislation would block all aid to Israel from 2019 through 2023 and all future payments from 2023 to 2026, the date of the current negotiations.

In an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday, Cotton called the bill a “loser’s bargain” that would have a “negative impact on American foreign policy and the ability to make peace in the Middle East.”

“The bill that we’re introducing today is a loser’s bargain, and I think the American public should be very concerned,” he said.

“There is no reason to believe that the Israeli lobby will not use the same strategy to try to block a two state solution in the future, and if they can stop that in the coming years, it will be a major setback for the peace efforts in the region.”

Cotton has been a vocal critic of the Senate move, arguing that the Senate should vote on a resolution to block any future U.S. aid to the Palestinians.

Cotton, who is a co-sponsor of the bill with Sen. Rand Paul (R, Ky.), is the chairman of the Cotton-backed Cotton Caucus, which includes several pro-Israel lawmakers, including Sens.

Mike Lee (R., Utah), Ted Cruz (R.

Texas), Tom Cotton and Ron Johnson (R.-Wis.).

Cotton also served on the Senate Appropriations Committee, which is where the legislation was developed, and is a member of the Foreign Relations Committee.

He has also been a senior advisor to the Israel advocacy group J Street.

In the post, he said that Schumer and other Democrats were “the ones who made this a loser,” and criticized them for “failing to listen to the American Jewish community and to listen very closely to their own constituents.”

“In many cases, Schumer’s votes are actually on votes that make the peace less likely to come to pass,” Cotton said.

“And so, I think it’s fair to say that his leadership in the Democratic Party has been one of the most problematic of all time.”

Cary Katz, a senior fellow at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, said that Cotton’s criticism of Schumer was “quite reasonable,” and that the senator has been “quite a champion of the Palestinian cause” for a long time.

“He’s a good friend of Israel, a strong supporter of Israel’s policies, and a very strong supporter for Israel’s interests,” Katz told The Hill.

“And it’s disappointing to see that he would go so far as to say Schumer’s support for the bill is bad for the Jewish people.

It’s actually not the case.”

Katz noted that Cotton, who has a long history of support for Israel, has also made statements that were “not the most nuanced” on the issue.

“What he said was that if the American government was going to support Israel’s security, then we need to recognize that Israel’s government has an important role to play in the peace effort, and we need the United States to recognize Israel’s right to exist, Katz said.

On Wednesday, Schumer released a statement saying that the vote to advance the bill was “not appropriate.””

I have consistently supported Israel’s legitimate security needs, and support for our allies in the Israeli-Arab world is a cornerstone of the U.N. Security Council,” Schumer said.

He added, “I do not support the bill that was voted on yesterday that would block the government of Israel from continuing to provide assistance to Palestinians.

It was a vote that did not go far enough in addressing the root causes of the conflict, and the bill has a bad name that has been well-earned.

Why we’re going to be ‘bang’ for our hats when the Senate adjourns

The Senate is still scheduled to adjourn for the Thanksgiving break.

But, as many in the Senate are likely to know, there’s a lot to celebrate.

Here’s what’s happening on the calendar.

The full schedule for the week of Nov. 30-Dec. 1 is below.

What’s on the agenda: The Senate’s agenda is filled with the usual stuff like hearings and business, but this is where things get interesting.

On Tuesday, Republicans will begin debating whether to proceed to debate on the floor the nomination of Senator John McCain as President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of defense.

That’s a contentious issue that’s been a topic of discussion for months and has been at the center of recent GOP attacks on McCain.

McCain has been a vocal critic of the president-elect, who has criticized his record on foreign policy.

But his nomination has been stalled by Republicans in the House.

The Senate will begin debate on that nomination this week.

This will mark the first time the Senate has had to debate and pass a resolution approving a new secretary of Defense since the Vietnam War ended.

But McCain’s nomination has sparked some intense backlash among members of the Republican Party, who have threatened to withhold their support for him and accuse him of betraying the party.

As we have written, McCain’s opponents say he has no credibility, while McCain himself has said he would not take the position if it came up for a vote.

McCain’s critics argue that his nomination is a waste of time and money that has not proven to be effective.

They also point out that McCain’s vote for the Iraq war has been widely criticized by Democrats.

But the Republicans are not willing to take that position, instead taking the position that they are eager to make the nomination.

On Thursday, Democrats are set to unveil their final legislative proposal for the next year.

Democrats will then be able to begin debate in the next few weeks on a plan to make it easier for small businesses to sell their goods online.

That bill will also include some provisions aimed at helping small businesses that have been hit hard by the recession.

The agenda for the following week will include the confirmation of the new secretary for the Office of Management and Budget, and the confirmation and confirmation of four new judges.

There are also a few other items to take care of, like approving a measure that would increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour, and increasing the annual cap on the federal debt to $10 trillion.

There will also be debate over a proposal to increase the debt ceiling by $1.2 trillion, a measure Democrats say is needed to keep the government funded through Dec. 15.

The next week is also the last week the Senate is expected to consider President Donald Trump.

The Republicans have been trying to move a bill through the Senate that would have repealed President Barack Obama’s executive order that imposed a temporary moratorium on the deportation of illegal immigrants.

Democrats have pushed back hard on this proposal, which has faced some backlash from immigrant rights groups, many of whom have threatened not to vote for it.

But Republicans have a better chance at a vote on their plan to end the ban than on a proposal that would repeal it entirely.

And the president is expected on Tuesday to meet with the Senate on a range of issues, including health care.

That will also mark the last chance the Senate will have to consider an Obamacare replacement plan, which is now being debated.

The last week of November is also a good time to get out and about and take advantage of the fall weather.

There is a great deal to do, including a number of events across the country, including the annual Congressional Ball, which will be held at the White House on Tuesday.

On Friday, the Senate and House will both meet to discuss the budget resolution that will be considered next week, which contains the final budget for the federal government, including funding for domestic programs like education, healthcare, and social services.

And there will be plenty of other action to get people going.

Here are some things to keep in mind as the week goes on.

The budget is not set to be a final deal until the House and Senate vote on the same legislation, which could take a few weeks.

The House and the Senate must vote on a reconciliation bill before it becomes law, which allows the bill to become law with a simple majority.

If there are no changes to the budget bill, the budget will be vetoed by the president.

The president has the power to veto legislation passed by both the House of Representatives and the House, and he has the ability to veto any bill passed by the Senate.

In the past, the president has been the one to veto bills passed by Congress, and that has been true this year.

The new budget will address the budget crisis by making some short-term adjustments, including an increase in the minimum federal income tax rate, as well as lowering some other taxes.

But there are also some measures that will make a big
