McMorris Rodgers: Emergency Funding for Our Friend and Ally

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the House voted to allocate an additional $225 million for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.

“There are no actions more atrocious and contemptible than intentional attacks against civilian populations — which is the hallmark of the Hamas terrorist gang. However, their barbarism is matched by Israeli ingenuity with Iron Dome, the Israel rocket interceptor. It has kept Hamas from terrorizing the brave Israeli civilian population. Hamas rockets aimed at Israel have been successfully destroyed by Iron Dome. Violence and terror are met by engineering and civilization.  

“To protect Israel – our greatest friend and ally in the Middle East – we must fund this vital missile defense system.  Today the House has acted once again to stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel and provide critical emergency funding for the Iron Dome and protect the people of Israel as they defend themselves and their country.  In the name of freedom and democracy, we must act.”
