WASHINGTON – This week, the House of Representatives voted on a supplemental appropriations bill for Israel, as well as several pieces of legislation to condemn terrorism and Anti-Semitism. Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-22) released the following statement:

“I stand with our key ally in the Middle East, Israel, as they continue to defend themselves against the barbaric attacks carried out by Iran-backed Hamas terrorists,” said Congressman Valadao. “U.S. support is critical for our ally Israel as they defend their right to exist.
