Democratic and Republican members of Congress scrambled Tuesday to seal a $225 million boost to Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system before they break this week for a month-long recess.No money for Israel will be included in a larger House spending bill focused on border security, Rep. Hal Rogers, the Appropriations Committee's Republican chairman, said Tuesday. He said military support for Israel would be addressed separately, though not necessarily this week. Even as the Obama administration presses for a cease-fire, it has backed Israel's request to replenish its missile defense stockpiles while it is fighting, with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel asking Congress to approve the measure.McConnell criticized efforts that he said would impose a cease-fire on Israel that doesn't meet its military objectives and rewards Hamas for a "campaign of terror".
