Congressman Spencer Bachus (AL-6) made the following statement on the rocket attacks on Israel from Gaza.

"Israel has an absolute right to defend its people against the terrorists of Hamas, whose ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel as a nation. There should be no doubt that the United States stands strong with Israel and that what is needed is for the unjustified attacks on Israel's people and land to end now."

The House of Representatives today passed a resolution (H.R. 813) supporting Israel's right to self-defense, "expressing vigorous support and unwavering commitment to the welfare, security, and survival of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state with secure borders, and recognizing and strongly supporting its right to act in self-defense to protect its citizens against acts of terrorism." Bachus voted in favor of the resolution.
