Whip McCarthy Statement in Support of Israel as it Defends Against Hamas

Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement in support of Israel’s right to defend herself against attacks from the Hamas terror organization:

“Every nation has the right to defend itself. Israel is the single best source of stability in the Middle East and the only strong democracy in the region. Calling for ‘restraint’ from both sides has done nothing to stop Hamas’s wanton violence and implies a moral equivalence between Hamas and Israel when no such equivalence exists.

“Today, the House adopted H.Res. 657 to express support for the State of Israel as it defends itself against unprovoked rocket attacks from the Hamas terrorist organization. We stand with our Israeli friends now as they protect themselves and their homeland from terrorist aggression.”
