(WASHINGTON) – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05), Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-25) and Congressman Wesley Hunt (TX-38), co-chairs of the Bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Black-Jewish Relations issued the following statement on the terrorist attacks in Israel. 

The co-chairs said: 

“As co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on Black-Jewish Relations, we condemn in the strongest possible terms the brazen Hamas attack on Israel. Israel has the unequivocal right to defend itself and its people. We stand with Israel and our hearts go out to the families and communities affected by the senseless acts of terrorism and hope to see a swift and safe return of those held hostage. The bond between the United States and Israel is, and will always be, ironclad.

“Additionally, while we have no indication of specific domestic anti-Semitic threats related to the recent terrorist attacks in Israel, if the past is a guide for the future, the coming days could be a precarious time for the American Jewish community. We call on the U.S. Government, particularly its law enforcement agencies, to take swift concrete steps to protect our communities.”
