Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) released the following statement on Hamas’ attack on Israel:
“The heinous acts of violence visited upon the people of Israel by Hamas—mothers, children, and seniors, including American citizens—were horrific and are rightly condemned by all who believe in human dignity and seek a lasting peace. What these events make clear is that there are those who fear peace and seek to sabotage it at any cost. We must not let them win.
“We pray for weeping mothers, who like the Rachel of ancient scriptures, mourn for their children and refuse to be comforted. We stand with families and communities whose lives have been changed forever. And we recommit ourselves to the hard work of a lasting peace grounded in justice and human dignity for all of God’s children.”
