Today, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), issued the following statement on the escalating conflict in Israel and Gaza:
"In light of the escalating violence in Gaza, it is my hope that there will be a swift and peaceful resolution to prevent any further loss of civilian lives. I stand in support of Israel's right to self-defense against rocket attacks or any other acts of aggression. Israel is one of our greatest allies and has my full support. I stand in support of President Obama and his vigilance to see that these attacks will cease immediately without escalation," says Congresswoman Wilson.
