Assemblyman Matt Simpson (R,C-Horicon) joined many of his legislative colleagues to stand in solidarity with Israel as it faces a barrage of vicious attacks orchestrated by Hamas. Sending a powerful message of unity in a letter from state legislators, the group underscores their commitment to peace and the sanctity of human lives, condemning the unrelenting aggression targeting innocent civilians. As they rally behind Israel, the lawmakers reiterate the importance of a peaceful and lasting resolution to the ongoing conflict in the Middle East that fosters stability, security and hope for all in the region.
“We stand strong in our support for Israel, not just in foreign affairs but here at home as well. By uniting to condemn the violence unleashed on innocent Israelis, we send a clear message that we will stand in the way of hate here and abroad. The rising hate crimes against Jewish people are deeply troubling, and we must be unwavering in our commitment to combating hate, bigotry and discrimination. Our solidarity with Israel is not just about international relations; it's about standing up for peace, tolerance and the values that define our nation,” said Simpson.
