Rep. Rice Statement Condemning the Recent Wave of Violence in Israel


WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Kathleen Rice released the following statement today condemning the recent wave of violent attacks in Israel.


Congresswoman Rice was added as a co-sponsor to H.Res. 293, a resolution which condemns anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement within the Palestinian Authority. The resolution urges PA President Abbas and other officials to halt incitement and calls upon the Department of State to monitor information put out by the PA. As always, let me know what you think and if you have any thoughts or concerns.


"I am extremely disturbed by the escalating violence in Israel and distraught by the loss of so many innocent Israeli lives in recent weeks. I offer my deepest condolences to the victims' families and loved ones, I stand in absolute solidarity with the Israeli people, and I continue to pray for lasting peace in a country that has been deprived of it for so long.
"Last summer, Israelis were forced to live in fear of rockets raining down from Gaza. Now, it's the fear that any one of them who walks down the street or stands at a bus stop could be the next victim. The Israeli people deserve freedom from this constant fear. Israelis and Palestinians both deserve leaders who will work constructively to achieve lasting peace – not stand by and say nothing while terrorists take the lives of innocent human beings.


"In light of these attacks and the Palestinian Authority leadership's failure to condemn them, I cosponsored House Resolution 293, Expressing concern over anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement within the Palestinian Authority. This bill unequivocally condemns the recent attacks against Israelis and calls on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to do the same and discourage any future acts of violence. The resolution also directs the U.S Department of State to monitor and publish information on all official PA incitement against Jews and Israel."
