Though American support for Israel really is massive, including billions of dollars in aid and reliable diplomatic backing, experts disagree sharply on why. Some possibilities include deep support for Israel among the American public, and the influence of the pro-Israel lobby.
US Congressman, Jim Jordan, said in a tweet that Israel is America’s closest and greatest ally, and expressed support for the state of Israel.
Israel is America’s closest ally and great friend.

Accordingly, a group of Pro-Palestine activists from “Sunbird Palestine team” who work on defending the Palestinian cause and confronting the Israeli propaganda strongly condemned his statement and commented about it.
Here are some of their comments:
Criminal Israel used and still all kinds of American support to kill, arrest and destroy all what can make life for Palestinians.
So, it's the time to stop these criminal contracts.
Palestine will be free 🇵🇸🇵🇸🌹🇵🇸🇵🇸
