Below is Joe Kennedy’s strong statement in support of Israel as she defends herself against Hamas’ unrelenting rocket attacks. As you’ll see when you access the statement on Facebook, he’s getting a good response but too many negative comments from people who refuse to recognize that Hamas has one goal and one goal only. A goal they have repeated endlessly and that’s impossible to misinterpret. Their goal is the destruction of the State of Israel and they’re backing it up with long range missiles and over a thousand rocket attacks. We need to let Joe know that we support his important statement. A great deal depends on our support of those who speak out in support of Israel!

‎”I strongly condemn Hamas’ continued rocket fire coming from Gaza into southern Israel. When I visited the communities under attack earlier this year, I saw firsthand the bomb shelters and sealed rooms in which a million Israelis are taking refuge right now. No one should be made to live under the threat of constant shelling, and I support Israel’s right to defend its citizens from these attacks. My prayers are with Israel and with the innocent victims of this conflict – and my hope is that the violence soon subsides so people can begin to put their lives back together in an atmosphere of calm and security.”
