Utah Delegation Stands with Israel

WASHINGTON – Reps. Burgess Owens (UT-04), John Curtis (UT-03), and Blake Moore (UT-01) joined over 400 members of the House of Representatives in support of a bipartisan resolution standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas terrorists. 

“The United States unequivocally stands with our ally, Israel, as they defend themselves against Hamas’ unprovoked, indiscriminate, and grotesque massacre of innocent civilians, including 27 Americans and counting,” said Rep. Owens. “There is no justification for murdering and beheading babies, raping innocent civilians, and kidnapping women, children, and grandparents. As we witness true evil, it’s more important than ever to stand with Israel, reject antisemitism, and condemn these horrific atrocities.” 

“The past few days have been heart-wrenching for Israel and the global Jewish community,” said Rep. Curtis.“Israel has my unwavering support. I stand behind this bipartisan resolution, the Jewish state in its inherent right to defend itself and protect its citizens.” 

“Families and communities throughout Israel have been torn apart at the hands of Hamas,” said Rep. Moore.“I am proud to join this bipartisan resolution condemning the brutal and barbaric actions of Hamas and supporting Israel’s right to defend its people. We must do all we can to help Israel, one of our greatest allies.”
