Kennedy Condemns Terrorist Attacks Against Israel
PHILADELPHIA, PA—OCT. 7, 2023—Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. issued a statement today condemning this morning’s Hamas terror attack in Israel that has left scores of Israeli men, women, and children dead and wounded. Reports have also indicated that terrorists have kidnapped Israelis and taken them into Gaza. The attacks were carried out with a high degree of coordination, by land, sea, and air. More than 5,000 rockets were fired at Israeli cities across the country.
“This ignominious, unprovoked, and barbaric attack on Israel must be met with world condemnation and unequivocal support for the Jewish state’s right to self-defense. We must provide Israel with whatever it needs to defend itself — now. As President, I’ll make sure that our policy is unambiguous so that the enemies of Israel will think long and hard before attempting aggression of any kind.
“I applaud the strong statements of support from the Biden White House for Israel in her hour of need. However, the scale of these attacks means it is likely that Israel will need to wage a sustained military campaign to protect its citizens. Statements of support are fine, but we must follow through with unwavering, resolute, and practical action. America must stand by our ally throughout this operation and beyond as it exercises its sovereign right to self-defense.”
