Senate Unanimously Passes Resolution to Support Israel’s Assault on Gaza

Sen. Kristen Gillibrand

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution Thursday night supporting Israel’s strikes on Gaza earlier this week.
S.Res.599 expresses “vigorous support and unwavering commitment to the welfare, security, and survival of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state with secure borders, and recognizing and strongly supporting its right to act in self-defense to protect its citizens against acts of terrorism.”
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) introduced the Senate resolution. 
Meanwhile, millions around the world are condemning Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people and it’s illegal blockade of Gaza. A demonstration in Los Angeles was held Thursday in front of the Israel Consulate. Click here a list of global actions for Gaza.
