Rep. Gohmert Issues Statement on the Israel-Hamas Crisis
Washington, May 19, 2021
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) issued the following statement on the Israel-Hamas crisis:
"It is extremely disconcerting to see the betrayal by this Administration of the safety, security, and trust of Israel. Israel’s support for human rights is far more consistent with the core beliefs of most Americans than other nations in the Middle East and potentially in the world. To be funding and coddling the very people who want Jews killed and Israel wiped off the map is antithetical to peace and goodwill in the world.
As the first nation to recognize Israel as an independent state when it was re-established in 1948 and the first to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in 2017, the United States has counted Israel as one of its closest allies. When Israel is threatened, we can know the United States will be next, regardless of how much some in the Biden administration wish otherwise."
