Press Release

Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement in response to the worsening conflict between the Israelis and Palestinian militants.

LaMalfa said, “The American people stand firmly behind the Israelis and their right to defend themselves from the increasingly dangerous and reckless attacks on its people by Palestinian terrorist groups like Hamas. Unfortunately, the Biden administration has neglected the Middle East, undone the progress made by the Trump administration with several countries and Israel, and left our strongest ally in the region to fend for itself. The administration should do more than offer empty words to Israel and must actively work towards achieving peace and stability in the Middle East.”
