Westmoreland: I Stand with Israel

(Washington, D.C.) — On July 11, 2014, the U. S. House of Representatives passed H. Res. 657, a resolution condemning the acts of terrorism against Israel by Hamas and pledges support as they defend their Jewish state.

The resolution passed by unanimous consent with Congressman Westmoreland’s full support. Below is Congressman Westmoreland’s statement:

download (6)“The unprovoked acts of terrorism by Hamas and Gaza terrorists against Israel must stop. That’s why I pledged my support for the self-defense of one of our nation’s closest allies: Israel. H. Res. 657 specifically reaffirms the U.S. House of Representatives support for Israel’s right to defend its citizens in order to ensure the survival of the State of Israel, condemns the unprovoked rocket fire at Israel, and calls on Hamas to immediately cease all rocket and other attacks against Israel.”

“Currently, Hamas refuses to agree to a cease-fire and is relentlessly firing rockets at Israel – hurting innocent people, forcing Israel to fight back to protect their civilians. When these terrorists refuse to work with diplomatic solutions, the Israelis have the right to exercise self-defense — that’s why I stand with Israel.”

  1. I would like to make an extensive reply but because of censorship I know it would not be printed. Let just say that this Christian Nation has through proxy and their own efforts murdered millions around the world. The last ten years has been especially horrific in that like Israel we have attacked Nations without even a Military. These so called “Rockets” are crude man made projectiles that are powered by sugar and fertilizer. They have no guidance system and during this conflict have hurt no one. Compare that to a military with the most sophisticated weaponry known to man. It is akin to taking a Shotgun to revenge a spit ball attack. Not to mention the Israelis have been order off this land countless times by the United Nations . In short Israel continues to live lawlessly by any standards and the United States enables it. But we are a Nation that has also murdered millions without cause. Me and my father are war Veterans and I hate to feel this way, but I am ashamed of the cowardly actions of late. Ashamed of our Country’s decisions to attack other countries without Military. And ashamed that they support the slaughter of the Palestinian people. But I am disgusted at bottom feeding Politicians that would use the killing of defenseless women and children to score a Political advantage. We as Christians should be grieving and not pounding our chest.
