Talking Points from AIPAC
When you are standing up for Israel, here are three talking points to mention:
- Hamas is relentlessly firing rockets at Israel.
Since the beginning of July, Palestinian terrorists have fired over 500 missiles and projectiles at Israel, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Through constant missile barrages, terrorist infiltrations and cyber-attacks, Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist factions have waged physical and psychological warfare against Israel’s civilian population.
- Israel is exercising its legitimate right of self-defense.
Israel has exercised its right to protect itself by undertaking military action that is has dubbed Operation Protective Edge. Israel made several efforts to defuse the situation, but Hamas rebuffed every Israeli feeler.
- America must stand with Israel.
It is critical for the United States to reiterate its support for its ally Israel, including its right to live in peace and to defend itself. “No country can accept rocket fire aimed at civilians, and we support Israel’s right to defend itself against these vicious attacks,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
