US Congressman Gets it Right on Gaza v. Israel

Responding to a letter from a constituent, U.S. Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL-06) sent out a video to his constituents explaining what the U.S. is doing to protect Israel from Gaza’s rocket attacks.

Roskam is the co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus and is active in helping to secure funding for Israel’s defense needs from the U.S., including the Iron Dome Missile Defense system, David’s Sling and the Arrow missile defense systems.

This past spring, Roskam and Democratic Congresswoman Grace Meng (NY-06) sought a near doubling in appropriation levels over those requested by the administration for the Iron Dome system. They requested $350.9 million for Iron Dome, which was $175.9 million more than was allocated in the president’s budget, and $268.7 million for the Arrow, Arrow 3 and David’s Sling systems, which was $172.1 million more than the administration requested.

In the video, Roskam refers to Hamas as the “Iran backed terrorist regime,” and explained to his constituents that Israel accepted the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire, while Hamas rejected it, instead choosing more violence.
