House voices full support for Israel in Hamas fight

Follow j. on   and 

The House of Representatives unanimously approved a non-binding resolution in support of Israel’s right to defend itself against rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

The resolution, which had more than 140 bipartisan sponsors, passed July 11 by unanimous consent, just two days after it was introduced by Reps. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) and Tom Cole (R-Okla.) in response to the attacks on Israel following the murder last month of three Israeli teenagers.

The resolution supports Israel’s right to defend itself against what it calls unprovoked rocket attacks from Hamas and condemns the attacks. It also calls on Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, to immediately stop firing rockets on Israel.

A similar resolution in the Senate was introduced by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the chairman of the body’s Foreign Relations Committee, as well as Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.). — jta

Obama, isn’t friend for Israel. When three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed by Hamas, Obama didn’t even express his condolences to the families. He want cease fire for Israel with Hamas. Let me tell Obama, that Israel shouldn’t listen to you. If Israel does cease fire with Hamas then, Hamas will be stronger. So, please Obama, mind your business. Let Israel destroy Hamas once and for all.

Stop talking to the PA and Hamas. Stop founding them. PA and Hamas, are the biggest terrorists in the Middle East. You need to respect Israel.  You need to support Israel. You need to respect the Israeli Prime Minister. Israel isn’t in the war against Palestinians. Israel, is in the war with Hamas. Time for Israel to take the fist out of the glove and defend the Jewish State, period.
