"As I watch the horrific images of missiles flying into Israel, I am reminded of the instructions in Psalm 122 – 'Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls.'
"We must condemn the terrorist attacks on the people of Israel. Let’s be clear about this: Hamas and other terrorists are the perpetrators. There should be no ambiguity here. The people of Israel must know that America stands with them, that their struggles are our struggles, and that we completely support their right to defend themselves."
