VIDEO: This Is the Time to Stand Shoulder to Shoulder with Israel

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, joined a group of Republican senators in a press conference calling for the Biden Administration to stand firmly with Israel, as the Israelis defend themselves against waves of attacks by Iranian-backed, Hamas terrorists.


Earlier this week, Senator Young introduced a resolution condemning the attacks against Israel by Hamas and asked for the Senate’s unanimous consent to pass it this week. 


“We are here today to send a strong message that the state of Israel has a right to defend themselves. To defend themselves against these terrorist rocket attacks emerging from Hamas. 

“We need to cut off the terrorist financing from the largest state sponsor of international terrorism, Iran, which is funding the development of these rockets, which is supplying the very hardware being used to reign down terror and to take the lives of Israelis.


“This is the time for reassurance and to stand shoulder to shoulder as the state of Israel finds its way back to peace,” said Senator Young during the press conference.
