Thank you, Chairman, for yielding. Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong support of this resolution to demonstrate that this House stands united with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists.

On October 7, we watched in horror as hundreds of terrorists poured across the Israel-Gaza border and massacred, kidnapped, and raped Israelis. It’s abhorrent.

This is at the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups backed and funded by the Iran regime. They want to wipe Israel off the map.

Thousands of rockets have fallen on Israel and continue falling as we speak. This has been the worst attack on Jews since the Holocaust.

I visited Israel last year, and I felt the constant threat of attack that the people of Israel face. It reminded me of my time growing up in South Korea as a young girl after the Korean War and I felt that constant threat coming from North Korea. This is really personal to me.

Hamas now holds around 200 hostages from Israel, the U.S., and other countries around the world.

Israel has a right to defend itself against terrorist aggression, bring its hostages home, and the right to exist.

I thank Chairman McCaul and Ranking Member Meeks for leading this resolution, and I urge my colleagues to support it.

I yield the balance of my time.
