Tillis, Colleagues Introduce Resolution Reaffirming U.S. Commitment to Israel

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.     This week, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and 18 of his colleagues announced a resolution condemning the attacks against Israel by Hamas, an Iranian-backed and funded terrorist organization, reaffirming the United States' unwavering commitment to our ally Israel and its right to take whatever means necessary to stop the murder of its citizens and foreign nationals residing in Israel. The Senators will ask for the Senate's unanimous consent to pass it later this week. This resolution is endorsed by the Republican Jewish Coalition and the Zionist Organization of America.

    "Israel has every right to defend itself against terrorists," said Senator Tillis. "Hamas needs to immediately stop attacking Israelis and endangering the lives of Palestinians. As a vibrant democracy and close ally of the United States, it is imperative the Biden administration support our historic relationship with Israel in their time of need. President Biden must reaffirm his commitment to protecting Israel, and I am proud to join this resolution to further demonstrate my unwavering support for the people of Israel."

    "At this moment of peril for Israel, it is so important that Congress send a strong message of solidarity," said Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) Executive Director Matt Brooks, "Thanks to Senator Scott and to all the Senators who have cosponsored his resolution for standing with Israel."

    "ZOA strongly supports Sen. Rick Scott's resolution, and urges all senators to cosponsor this important expression of the will of the senate," said Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) National President Morton Klein. "It is particularly important that the senate speak with a bipartisan voice in supporting Israel. The resolution appropriately keeps the focus on the aggressive actions of the terrorist organization Hamas, and fully supports the right of Israel to defend itself."
