The people of Israel should all be in our thoughts and prayers as they respond to this
weekend’s absolutely horrific attack by Hamas. We should all join with world leaders
in condemning Hamas and their supporters for this genocide.
The news from Israel keeps getting worse and worse, with more than 1000 dead,
including at least 20 Americans. They have tortured their victims, desecrated their
bodies, beheaded infants, and taken civilian hostages. These are all war crimes that
should be met with the harshest measures, and Israel has my full support as they
Equally troubling to me has been the support shown for Hamas’s actions by some
Americans, including students at highly regarded colleges such as Harvard and New
York University. This is appalling, and we must call them out for this hate.
I have often said that when I am elected to Congress, Israel will have a friend in
Washington. I stand unwavering in that support, and I hope that Israel can count on
you as well.
