On Thursday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order to repatriate more than 20,000 Americans in Israel who have become stranded as a result of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Iran-backed Hamas terrorists.

With particular attention to the 1,000 Floridians stuck in the warzone, this action stands in stark contrast to criticism levied against the Biden administration for its delayed response to evacuating U.S. citizens from the region.

“Today I signed an executive order authorizing rescue operations in Israel to bring Floridians home and transport supplies to our allies. We will not leave our residents behind,” Gov. DeSantis wrote on X.

“To the many Floridians who are stuck in Israel, trying to get home — help is on the way,” he added.

The Executive Order cites a multitude of reasons to justify the state-led intervention, particularly highlighting the lack of timely assistance from the Federal government. The most notable justifications include:

  • The Iran-backed Hamas terrorists’ coordinated attacks on Israel, which is estimated to have led to the deaths of over 1,200 Israelis and 27 Americans so far.
  • The capture of an estimated 150 hostages by Hamas terrorists, among whom are several Americans still unaccounted for.
  • Failure of the Biden administration to provide rescue or evacuation plans for stranded Americans.
  • A large number of requests for help coming into the Executive Office of the Governor from Floridians who have received no assistance from the U.S. Embassy in Israel.
  • A large Jewish population in Florida, many of whom are dual Israeli-American citizens and have relatives and businesses in Israel.

When asked if Florida would charge the stranded Americans for the flights, as the Biden administration will, the Governor’s office replied in the negative.

In response to reports of Americans stranded in Israel, the governor has issued an executive order which explicitly condemns the Biden administration.

According to the order, Floridians have reached out to both the governor’s office and Florida’s congressional delegation for assistance as they were not receiving timely help from the U.S. Embassy in Israel nor any coherent rescue strategy from the Department of State.

The Department of State’s Consular Affairs Crisis Management System (CACMS) requires citizens wishing to depart Israel to sign a promissory note before receiving any assistance with evacuation.

Yitz Friedman, Communications Manager at American Accountability Foundation, was one such citizen caught in this situation and shared his experience via X post.

He wrote about how he and his wife had their return flight cancelled yet were unable to receive aid from the U.S. embassy, instead being told “pound sand” when they asked for help.

This highlights a major failure on behalf of the Biden administration to provide adequate support for its citizens abroad during times of crisis.

“My wife and I have finally gotten ourselves on the way home to the US from Israel after days of fear and tremendous anxiety. Our original flight was canceled. While Poland, Hungary, Brazil, Romania, and other countries sent planes to bring their citizens home from the war zone, our government told us to fend for ourselves. I literally called our embassy asking for help and was essentially told to pound  sand,” Friedman wrote.

  • Thank you Governor DeSantis for doing what our pretend President has not been TOLD to do yet!
    King Obama does NOT think that Americans are worth bringing home! He is running O’Biden and the White House, and opened our borders to the trash of the world (including 1.5 million “get-a-ways”). I have to wonder how many of those are terrorists? They snuck into Israel, but we just welcome them in, and the clowns in the White House will PRETEND to be shocked when they start the attacks here!
    And no one in DC has the spine or the brains to do anything about it!
    BRILLIANT!

  • I don’t understand how Americans can accept this old mentally deranged wreck wasting your tax money on supporting the most evil terrorists .Have the voters lost their brains?

    • dont kid yourself that racist pig Obama is the one running the whitehouse.. that crook biden is a cover for that racist pig Obama..they both have committed treason and they will pay for their crimes when TRUMP gets back into the whitehouse..we must go after the massive cesspool of corruption if we want to save the unitedstates from these traitors within…it is sickening to hear the UN turning away americans..we need to pull out from the UN they dont do what they are suppose to.. why support them when the un?? isn’t supporting the citizens..a disgrace…that crook biden caused this by being told to NOT release the billions to iran..we need to blow up irans oil reserves..we need to attack that now..put them out of business ASAP…if TRUMP was in the whitehouse like he should have been these wars wouldnot have been happening..they did these wars cause biden is corrupt and weak and a traitor the other countries see this…the bloodshed is on that crook bidens hands..but sadly that crook biden is a sick evil predator who has no soul..he could careless of the deaths… he proved that by turning over the billions to iran..FJB…

  • When did any American Embassy fail to help American citizens in need of help.?
    And while the Communist Democrats send money to our enemies and purposely tell American hostages they won’t be getting help.!
    This shows the Democrats are Nazi Communist and Domestic Terrorists.
    We The People are witnessing a drastic change in America unfolding before our eyes, from a great and powerful Nation to a Communist controlled Government and soon the fall of freedom.
    Those who I call complete total idiots go out and vote Democrat expecting them to give them free hand outs are way to Stupid to to see the truth..
    Anyone who voted in Muslims to represent them must be the most Anti-American, Anti-Constitution Communist loving son of a bitches,, and should be treated like a ravenous dog.
    After BLM protested in New York, carrying the Palestinian flag and chanting obscene words against Isreal should have been immediately shot down in the streets. They shown the world the true nature of Hate against America and our Allie in the Middle East.
    After what this Communist Government has done to her Citizens and the destruction of America lead by the most hateful Anti-American, Anti-Constitution Homosexual Muslim, Barack Hussein Obama and George Soros, how could anyone still vote for a worthless POS Democrat.
    I was in the United States Army when the most hated POS President, Jimmy Carter, who failed to respond to, the 50 American hostages in Iran.
    And ever since then America began to spiral downward even faster as Americans voted in more Anti-American Communist Democrats, and now look where it got us.
    More power to you Governor DeSantis if you can pull it off.

  • THE ISLAMIC THREAT

    NOTE: The information presented herein has been submitted many times since 1982 by one of the officers serving on the counter-terrorism team charged with assessing/addressing the threat to DOD personnel deployed overseas and developing strategy/tactics to combat the threat. To date few Americans and their so-called leaders have paid much attention to the ‘REAL’ threat presented by radical Muslims.

    Question: The Islamic State, the Nation of Islam, CARE, ISIS, HAMAS, and any other Muslim group you can name; what do they all have in common? Answer: They all have the same ultimate objectives!

    Those objectives are to: 1). Fully install Sharia as the only governing philosophy in the world, and 2). Install Muhammad as the last true prophet and his teachings supposedly inspired by the ‘truths’ delivered to him in a cave by Gabriel (an angel of the one and only God) sometime between 610 – 613 CE as the only law and religion of the land. Those same truths/teachings which became institutionalized in the Quran, the Hadith, and the Sira; which are the three most important foundation documents providing the bases for Sharia.

    Per personal knowledge/experience gained as a military officer with many years of service in combating terrorism at the hands of various Muslim and other groups, I can inform all Americans willing to listen as to the reasons why I and many of my fellow officers have warned the American government many times as to why Islam is much different than any other religion/governing philosophy, and why all Islamic groups present a significant threat to America.

    The simple reason the Islamic State, the Nation of Islam, CARE, ISIS, HAMAS, etc. are so dangerous is the range of strategies/tactics they claim were/are mandated to be employed by the Prophet himself. If you doubt me just watch those individual Muslims who are implanted in the U.S. House of Representatives as they deal with their comrades, the media, and the American people. I simply find it pitiful as to how unskilled they are, yet their comrades in the government, the public, and the media seem oblivious to their true objectives. I as an old ground combat/counter-terrorist soldier would say this to their audiences; “I can’t believe you knuckleheads, you let the enemy walk up and kiss you right on the mouth before they gut you and/or cut your throat!”

    Don’t feel bad that most of you may have been so blind reference the threat from Islam and the range of their tactics (lie, cheat, steal, kill, whatever required to rid the world of non-believers). Mr. Reagan and most of his administration failed to give the threat they were provided by the army officers mentioned above in 1982 adequate attention. Even after two Muslim terrorists less than a year later in 1983 killed over 200 marines, several sailors, one soldier, and 40 French soldiers in Lebanon; our arrogance, lack of knowledge, and stupidity has continued to leave us seriously ill prepared.

    Now the Muslim community can count among their best allies the American media, the American left, and the hordes of simply ignorant deniers!

    Don’t fret too much. I am offering free classes to teach the eight prayers you need learn to start your personal conversion to Islam. Oh,you will need to bring your own rug.

    Final Note: Would you like to know the primary tactic the team of army officers mentioned above presented to the Reagan administration? The basic tactic was: “In that the best defense is a good offense we must kill the terrorists in their beds before they kills us in ours!”

    • Which constitution? That is another Muslim lie. Obama would not protect Israelis and certainly not a Jewish American.
      Governor DeSantis is a hero! An American great , good person.

    • Sandra, you need to prove that statement, while it is the governments responsibility to protect the citizens, but when the government will not do their duty it becomes the citizens responsibility to protect each other, just like some of the states are doing to protect our southern border because the weak willed and treasonous politicians in Washington D.C. won’t do their job. S.C. Davis

    • You always make vague comments and refuse to cite specifics. Spell out exactly which constitution: Florida’s or the US Constitution. The US constitution specifies that powers not specifically granted to the Federal government belong to the States. For once, step out of your vague platitudes and cite which constitution and which articles. You just try to make yourself sound superior. Do you print your posts and brag about them to people in your echo chamber?

  • Unbelievable!
    The communist democrat pathological lying Obama biden jackasses won’t pay to rescue Americans BUT WILL GIVE ILLEGAL ALIENS $2,200/month AND NO REQUIREMENT FOR SHOWING UP TO IMMIGRATION HEARINGS?

    THROW ALL THE REGIME IN GITMO AND NEVER TRY THEM, LIKE THEY TREATED AND CONVICTED J6FEDSURRECTION INNOCENT AMERICANS!

    THIS IS WORST THAN HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS!!

    UNDOUBTEDLY THIS IS SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY AND HIGH TREASON!
