Recently, a cohort of US progressives - all Democrats and including the Squad - were able to deny a billion dollars of funding for Israel's Iron Dome. Even if, as The Washington Times claims, a similar provision will be pushed through before year end, that such funding was denied shows that the Palestinian rights movement - BDS - is going from strength to strength. Especially if it is the first time such a sizeable tranche of military funding was denied.

Was this the first time such funding was denied? And how were they able to manage such a coup?
