Congresswoman Wilson’s Statement on the Bipartisan Resolution Standing with Israel

Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24), a member of the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus and Congressional Democratic Israel Working Group Caucus, released the following statement in response to the bipartisan Meeks-McCaul Resolution standing with Israel and condemning Hamas’ brutal war against Israel.

“In the face of extreme Hamas terrorism, Democrats and Republicans stand with Israel because unity is our strength. The world should have no doubt about where the United States stands with Israel, and Congress must act decisively to protect Israel's right to defend itself. That’s why I’m proud to be an original cosponsor of the bipartisan Meeks-McCaul resolution because Israel cannot wait as Hamas continues its reign of terror. No matter how divided Congress may seem, my colleagues understand the need for unity, compassion, and unwavering support for our Israeli allies. This is not about political parties; this is about the security of the world and the future of democracy. While the House of Representatives may have many disagreements, our unwavering support and unity towards Israel symbolizes the unbreakable bond between Israel and the United States. When Israel is strong, America is strong.”

Congresswoman Wilson represents one of the largest Jewish communities in Florida. The resolution includes 390 cosponsors in the House of Representatives. The full text of the resolution can be found here
