America has had a long-standing history of friendship and partnership with Israel. Israel works closely with the American intelligence community and is a strategic asset for America and an oasis of stability in a volatile region. The United States has an obligation to defend our interests by standing shoulder to shoulder with our closest ally.

Thankfully, the Trump administration recognizes this special bond and truly places itself alongside our Israeli allies. Tuesday, State Department Representative Heather Nauert stated, “We stand with Israel as Israel defends itself against these attacks. It is simply unacceptable to target civilians.”

Until bloodthirsty Palestinian terrorist organizations will permanently cease their attacks on innocent Israeli civilians, Israel will be obligated to utilize its talented army to defend the state. Flare-ups of violence emanating from Gaza derail progress to the peace and reconciliation that Israelis so earnestly seek.

Imagine a world in which the Israeli people were not forced to take defensive or preventative military action against those infected with blind hatred. At some point, I pray that peace will truly descend on Israeli and its holy capital city Jerusalem, but until then, Israel is righteous in taking the necessary steps to fight terrorism and defend their people.
