Spanberger Joins Bipartisan Resolution Standing with Israel

392 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives Have Signed On to the Bipartisan Resolution, Which Expresses Unwavering Support for Israel and Condemns Hamas’ “Barbaric” & “Brutal” Actions

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today joined U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX-10), Ranking Member Gregory W. Meeks (D-NY-05), and 390 of their colleagues to introduce a bipartisan resolution standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas terrorists and condemning Hamas’ brutal war against Israel.

“As a former CIA case officer and current Member of the House Intelligence Committee, I know that the United States must continue to stand by our ally and provide Israel with the intelligence, defense, and humanitarian assistance it needs to secure its borders and neutralize the Hamas terrorists,” said Spanberger. ”The events we are seeing unfold in Israel are horrific beyond words, and I join my colleagues in unequivocally condemning Hamas’ abhorrent crimes and attacks.”

“President Biden has committed the United States fully to Israel’s self-defense,” said Ranking Member Meeks. “Israel is responding to the Hamas terror organization’s unprecedented attack. The bipartisan resolution will demonstrate this is one issue in which the U.S. House of Representatives is united, and I expect it to pass the House with broad bipartisan support.”

“Now is the time to show the world the United States firmly stands with our friend and ally Israel in our condemnation of this heinous attack by Iran-backed terrorists,” said Chairman McCaul. “I expect this bipartisan resolution to be one of the first, if not the first items considered on the floor once we elect a new Speaker. And I expect it to receive overwhelming bipartisan support.”
