Statement on violence in Middle East

Written on: July 22nd, 2014 in Effective & Efficient Government

Remembering my most recent visit to Israel last July to meet with thriving entrepreneurs and the leaders of the Middle East’s leading democracy, I think of the people in the region who want nothing more than to live in peace and pursue their dreams. I support Israel’s right to defend itself from a terrorist organization’s indiscriminate rocket fire – rocket fire that has continued even during cease fires. The international community must stand firm against Hamas and its lack of concern for how its actions endanger innocent Palestinians and Israelis alike.
