Statement by Executive Director Jeff Mendelsohn Condemns Missile Attacks Against Israel
NOVEMBER 12, 2019, WASHINGTON DC – In response to last night’s missile strikes against Israel from Gaza, Pro-Israel America Executive Director Jeff Mendelsohn today issued the following statement:
“Rockets are once again targeting Israeli civilians. These most recent attacks from Islamic Jihad in Gaza are just the latest example of a long series of despicable acts seeking to terrorize Israelis. We strongly condemn these attacks and the terrorist organizations behind them. Israel has the right and obligation to defend its people.
Once again, Israel has successfully deployed Iron Dome to protect its civilians from rocket fire, highlighting the importance of a strong U.S.-Israel relationship and the value of U.S. security assistance to Israel. We thank those members of Congress who have supported Iron Dome and who recognize the urgency of our commitment to Israel. These events underscore that recent calls to cut, condition or end America’s security commitment to Israel from members of Congress including Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are wrong and dangerous for both countries.”
