Today, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) released the following statement on the situation in Gaza:

I strongly support Israel's right to defend itself against rockets raining down on innocent civilians, and I call on Hamas to end these brutal and brazen attacks. There should be no daylight between Israel and the United States at this moment of crisis and I am hopeful that a cease-fire can be reached as quickly as possible. As we approach Thanksgiving, my thoughts and prayers are with the children and families gathered in bunkers and shelters throughout Israel and they should know that there is strong bipartisan support from the Congress and the people of our country for their right to self-defense.
