It's sickening to think that the architect behind the disastrous Iran nuclear deal would have any official connection to Israel, but welcome to President Joe Biden's administration.
According to The Daily Wire, Jack Lew, the man behind the Iran nuclear deal that put Israel at great risk, was just confirmed as the new U.S. ambassador to Israel.
The Democrat-controlled Senate voted 53-43 in favor of confirming Lew for the position, even after strong Republican opposition.
Notably, Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Rand Paul (R-KY) sided with Democrats on the issue, voting in favor of confirming Lew.
Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham voted to pass Jack Lew to be Israel's Ambassador.
It's completely shameful that any Republican voted with Democrats to put an Obama Iranian sympathizer in as Israel ambassador after Iran funded the slaughter of Israelis. https://t.co/YDEmFNp2hw

The Daily Wire recapped his history:
Lew, the former Treasury secretary, played a key role in the development of the Iran Nuclear Deal agreed upon in 2015 when Biden was vice president. He was also questioned in 2016 after he played a role in the Obama administration’s handout of $400 million in cash to Tehran.
In other words, this is the LAST guy that should have been confirmed as the ambassador to Israel.
Biden’s pick to be the Ambassador to Israel, Jack Lew orchestrated and implemented the Iran nuclear deal.
The billions from that deal helped fund the Hamas death squads that murdered of Israelis and Americans.

A number of high-profile Republicans torched Biden and the White House for even considering someone like Lew -- someone whose actual support for Israel is heavily questioned.
"Biden’s pick to be the Ambassador to Israel, Jack Lew orchestrated and implemented the Iran nuclear deal," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said recently.
He added, "The billions from that deal helped fund the Hamas death squads that murdered … Israelis and Americans. It would be nice if we had an ambassador that would support Israel."
Joe Biden's nominee to be the ambassador to Israel, Jack Lew, was Obama's chief of staff and Treasury Secretary.
In those roles, he oversaw the planning and implementation of the catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal. He sent over $100 billion to Iran.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) added, "America needs a reliable ambassador to Israel with a record of defending the Jewish State. Jack Lew, an Iranian sympathizer, would be the opposite."
What a sad state of affairs.
