We Stand with Israel

I don’t say this lightly: this is Israel’s 9/11.

On a peaceful Shabbat morning in Israel, despicable Hamas terrorists launched a full-scale attack on Israel to kill, capture and rape as many people as possible.  These barbarians went house after house, kibbutz after kibbutz brutally murdering thousands of people, including more than a dozen Americans.  To add insult to injury, they recorded the torture and murder of innocent Jews of every age and posted them online.

This attack was the bloodiest day for Jews since the Holocaust.

At this critical point of Israeli history, the United States must continue to unequivocally stand with our ally.  Even as the left-wing media and groups throughout the U.S. try to shift the narrative to victim-blame Israel and justify the acts of terrorists murdering babies and Holocaust survivors, the United States can’t flinch in our support.

This is not the first time Israel has faced darkness and terror from Gaza, but I support Israel in making sure it is the last time.  Israel must do what is necessary to defend its borders and protect their children so that we don’t see merciless murders of Jewish people take place right before our eyes ever again.

As the only Member of Congress who has worn the uniform of both the U.S. Army and the Israeli Defense Forces, I will continue on that fight in Congress.  It is past time for my bipartisan bill, the Hamas International Financing Prevention Act, to be law so that the United States would sanction any and all financial backers of Hamas.  Any person, group, or government who supports Hamas is complicit, and our nation must NEVER reward them with aid or access to our economy.

You have my word: I will continue to defend Israel and their fight to eliminate every last  terrorist.  To stay updated on my effort on this fight, click here to learn more:
