America Stands with Israel

It’s been nearly two months since Hamas unleashed their reign of terror on Israel, slaughtering 1,200 innocent people and taking 240 hostages. Thankfully, more than 80 of those held against their will in Gaza have been returned home to their families in recent days.

Unfortunately, this nightmare is not over yet, as the safe return of all other hostages is far from guaranteed. So while we should celebrate the joyful reunions that offer a brief moment of hope, we cannot let our guard down as our ally fights this dark war.

That’s why I was proud to join my colleagues in the House – both Republicans and Democrats – to overwhelmingly pass two resolutions that reaffirm Israel’s right to exist and call on Hamas to immediately release ALL hostages. We also passed a bill I helped lead called the No Funds for Iranian Terrorism Act (H.R. 5961). This legislation would permanently freeze the $6 billion of Iranian funds released as part of the Biden administration’s 2023 hostage deal, making it much more difficult to sponsor violent terrorism in the Middle East.

Israel is the United States’ strongest ally in the Middle East, which is why it was so important for these bills to pass with strong congressional support. Together, we proved once again that the People’s House will not waiver. We will stand with our ally today, tomorrow, and always.
