WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Monday joined Sen. Rick Scott of Florida and 17 other Republican colleagues on a resolution condemning the attacks against Israel by Hamas, an Iranian-backed and funded terrorist organization, and reaffirming the United States’ unwavering commitment to our ally Israel and its right to take whatever means are necessary to stop the murder of its citizens and foreign nationals residing in Israel.
Senator Johnson said, “Israel has every right to defend itself. The United States must continue to support our friend and ally as the Israelis defend themselves against Hamas’ violent terrorist attacks. President Biden and his administration must stand unequivocally with our closest ally in the Middle East.”
Last week, Senator Johnson joined Sen. Marco Rubio and 42 other Republican colleagues in sending a letter to President Biden urging him and his administration to stand unequivocally with Israel and in no circumstances offer Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism and financier of Hamas, sanctions relief.
