BREAKING: House UNANIMOUSLY Stands Up for Israel Against Hamas

Israel’s military operation in the Gaza Strip to destroy the tunnel networks that Hamas uses to smuggle weapons throughout the region has largely met with success. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has lost dozens of soldiers, but the militant Palestinians have lost many more. Some tunnels have been destroyed and weapons seized, although there is still much work to be done to make Israel’s civilians safe from terrorist rocket attacks.

The propaganda war has been more mixed, with the media’s liberal bias especially evident on the subject of civilian casualties. News reports often fail to mention the lengths that the IDF takes to warn Palestinian civilians prior to attacks or the efforts that terror groups like Hamas take to encourage civilians to ignore those warnings, willingly sacrificing civilian lives for their propaganda efforts.

Sometimes, however, the truth comes out, as it has recently according to reports from journalist and author Brigitte Gabriel. Although President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have been applying diplomatic pressure in support of designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations like Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the House just “unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution” that condemns Hamas and expresses support for Israel.

The resolution illustrates that at least some in the House understand the situation on the ground in Israel in that it specifically calls out Hamas for its use of human shields to protect its war materiel, and furthermore calls upon the international community to do the same.

Perhaps more importantly, the bill also reaffirms Israel’s right not only to “defend its territory and citizens” in general terms, but also, more specifically, the resolution “supports efforts to permanently demilitarize the Gaza Strip, removing Hamas’s means to target Israel, including its use of tunnels, rockets, and other means.”

The document also humanely offered condolences to all who have lost loved ones in the conflict and support to those Palestinians who reject terrorism and Hamas–a group the Palestinians voted into power.

The resolution passed by voice vote, so no official recording of individual votes was made, although Gabriel reports that it passed unanimously.

Since terrorists groups started launching rockets into heavily-populated civilian areas of Israel from Gaza, Barack Obama and John Kerry have claimed to support Israel’s right to self-defense while working all along to support her enemies. It is about time that the U.S. government took some action–even largely symbolic action, like this resolution–in support of America’s strongest middle east ally, Israel.

It is also reassuring to see that Republicans and Democrats in the house can agree on something, at least when good and evil are so obviously on display. It should give all Americans hope that our representatives in Congress may someday agree that a president who ignores the nation’s laws is worthy of condemnation, too.
