Hare Statement on the Situation in Gaza

"I am troubled by the violence in Gaza and deeply regret the loss of innocent life on both sides of the conflict. But Israel's recent military action is not only appropriate, it is necessary to stop acts of terrorism against its citizens. For two years, Hamas has fired rockets into Israel, putting nearly a million people at risk in the process. Israel has the right to defend itself and America should stand strongly behind its ally. Last year on my trip to Israel, I visited the town of Sderot which has been hit by thousands of rocket attacks in the last decade. The families I met there refused to leave their homes, showing the true bravery of the Israeli people. Israel has made countless concessions in an effort to achieve peace in the Middle East. Unfortunately, Hamas is more committed to the destruction of Israel than a truly sustainable peace. The Palestinian people deserve better from their leaders."
