Israel-Hamas War Statement

I am horrified and disgusted to see the Hamas attacks upon innocent life, including the beheading of dead children and babies, the horrific rape of women, the murder of grandmothers, and the kidnapping of innocent civilians, have all been recorded and live-streamed by Hamas for the world to see. Hamas, an anti-Israel terrorist organization, credits its namesake to the Hebrew word for violence. These acts and others perpetrated by these terrorists showcase the darkest of evils in this world.

The planned attack during a Jewish holiday with the sole purpose of murdering innocent Jews is a continuation of the Nazi regime in modern times. I firmly condemn in the strongest terms possible the terrorist states of Hamas and any and all forms of antisemitism. I implore the world to stand with Israel

I extend my deepest condolences to the family members of all of the victims of these attacks. I pray for the renewed strength and resolve of the Jewish people as they stare in the face of evil and defend their citizens and country.
