Highlights from the remarks include:
“Madam President, let my message to Israel be clear. America stands with you and your right to defend yourself from this unspeakable evil perpetrated by Hamas.”
“I’ve learned as a Congress member, I need to pass on to every person in America, how important Israel is, as an ally. In so many ways, they are the eyes and ears for America in a very, very troubled land. And no doubt their efforts have prevented the deaths of 10s of 1000s of Americans by thwarting terrorist attacks from our enemies. And we’re so blessed to share military technology that’s saving American lives as well. Indeed Israel has been one of our greatest most staunch allies. Today, we need to face the truth. We need to tell the truth. Hamas is a terrorist organization. And it only knows one language, death and destruction.”
“Hamas has no interest in dialogue, only in destruction. Hamas does not want peace. They want punishment. Hamas wants war, not coexistence. Hamas is a terrorist army with a track record of unspeakable brutality and a commitment to wiping out not just Israel.”
“Look, this blood, the blood of American citizens is on the hands of Iran and Hamas. And as we go forward over these next weeks, these next months, we need to realize that all the blood being shed belongs on the hands of Iran. I would ask the White House to strongly condemn Iran’s actions and disavow their terrorist regime. We need to stop empowering Iran, we need to stop encouraging them to develop nuclear weapons and making it impossible to do that.”
“Right now Iran’s selling a billion dollars of oil every week to pay for wars like this. Under this administration, Iran’s reserves went from $6 billion to $60 billion. We have to stop turning our head to the sanctions, we need to double down on our sanctions. We need to stop the funding from Iran, this head of the snake.”
“And then lastly, we need to make sure that all the other puppets of Iran know that if they engage further in war with Israel, as my dad would say, there’ll be hell to pay. This seems complicated to many people. But I think that’s why it’s so important that the United States outline exactly what our priorities are, as we undertake these next several weeks.”
“The existence of Hamas is a clear and present danger to the United States, to Israel, and the entire free world. There is no safe Israel. There’s no safe world. There’s no safe America, as long as Hamas lives in the Gaza Strip. Madam president again, I just pledge my support to the people of Israel.”
