House Passes Resolution Condemning Hamas

via 13WMAZ

The House of Representatives passed a resolution in support of Israel following terrorist attacks by Hamas.

The resolution condemns Hamas for starting an “unprovoked war” on Israel and reaffirms Israel’s right to self-defense.

It received overwhelming bipartisan support with 412 members voting in favor and ten against.

Some Democratic representatives, including Tlaib, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Bush, and Bowman, opposed the resolution.

Republican Rep. Thomas Massie also voted against it.

House Resolution 771, titled “Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists,” condemns Hamas for beginning an “unprovoked war on Israel” and accuses them of “slaughtering Israelis and abducting hostages in towns in southern Israel, including children and the elderly.”

“Resolved, That the House of Representatives — (1) stands with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists; (2) reaffirms Israel’s right to self-defense; (3) condemns Hamas’ brutal war against Israel; (4) calls on all countries to unequivocally condemn Hamas’ brutal war against Israel,” the resolution’s text says.

“This was one of the darkest moments in the history of the state of Israel,” Republican Rep. Mike McCaul said.

“[Hamas] must be confronted with zero equivocation … [this resolution] condemns Hamas in the strongest possible terms and reaffirms America’s support for the State of Israel,” he added.

“Winning a war while losing the peace likely portends future wars. Regrettably, the resolution at hand does not mention a two-state solution in tandem with the necessity to provide aid to the Palestinians, yet both are part and parcel to any hope for lasting peace,” wrote Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas.
