Collins Statement On Recent Violence in Gaza
Gainesville, GA – Congressman-elect Doug Collins (R-GA) issued the following statement regarding the recent attacks in the Gaza Strip:
“The recent violence against Israel is intolerable and must come to an end,” said Representative-elect Collins. “As someone who has served overseas in our military and seen first-hand the devastation put in place by radical Islam, I wholeheartedly support the decision made by Israeli leaders to defend their country and protect its citizens.
“For years, Israel has been our country’s greatest ally in the Middle East, and we must continue to stand with them during this time. All the while we must remain steadfast in our joint commitment to promote freedom and democracy throughout the world. We hope for a final and diplomatic end to the violence in Israel and across the region.”
