Despite the election of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) last November, the majority of the Democratic Caucus says its strongly pro-Israel.

There's evidence to back their claim.

Arguably no other border in the world is as fraught with peril as Israel's. The sole Democracy at the epicenter of the Middle East's geopolitical fault lines early on took a no-nonsense approach to border security – utilizing physical barriers and modern technology – with the praise of Republicans and Democrats alike.

Their wall, which in most cases is actually a closely monitored fence, effectively ended the Second Intifada.

After the barrier's completion, suicide bombings dropped from 73 in the West Bank (between 2000 and July 2003) to 12 (from August 2003 to the end of 2006).
