As House Republicans end their own civil war, their Democrat counterparts could begin their own, with support for Israel’s ongoing war with Hamas causing divisions among House Democrats.

The GOP-led House, Speaker Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), passed a resolution in support of Israel in its war on Hamas following the group’s deadly terrorist attacks on Israeli soil earlier this month. the bill titled, “Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists,” was introduced by House Foreign Affairs Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) and passed the House with overwhelming support from both parties.

However, Nine Democrats —including members of the radical squad— voted against the resolution. Six other House Democrats voted present. Following the bill’s passage, Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) sent out an X post blasting the members of his party who did not support the resolution.

“Last night, 15 of my Democratic colleagues voted AGAINST standing with our ally Israel and condemning Hamas terrorists who brutally murdered, , and kidnapped babies, children, men, women, and elderly, including Americans,” Gottheimer said. “They are despicable and do not speak for our party.”

Gottheimer comments infuriated Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), one of the nine Democrats who voted against the resolution. Carson called Gottheimer a punk and a coward who is afraid of confrontation.

“I think he’s not acting in the role as a member of Congress. I think he’s shown himself to be very emotional. Like most cowardly people, when you confront them, they’re afraid. I’m unafraid of the guy and if he wants to call us despicable, I’m saying he’s a coward and he’s a punk,” Carson told the reporter. “He should remember why the people sent him here. And if he wants to play some kind of tough guy or gangster, we can handle it like gentlemen, or we can get into something else.”

The Democrat leadership is desperate to resolve the spat between the two men, with CNN’s Manu Raju confirming that both lawmakers are likely to have a meeting.
