(Idaho Republican Party Press Release, October 9, 2023)
Boise — The Idaho Republican Party is deeply saddened and concerned by the recent escalation of war in Israel. We strongly condemn the raw barbarism of the terrorist group Hamas and their murder of innocent men, women and children.
We firmly stand by Israel’s right to defend itself against these demonic acts and Israel’s actions in response to such threats are entirely justifiable.
While we hope for a future peaceful resolution, it is now time for Israel to show its strength in defending her people. In the United States, self defense is a cherished conservative value and we affirm Israel’s right to self defense as a sovereign nation.
As Americans, we should not turn away from the bloody images that show the reality of this war. Rather we should look upon them unflinchingly and soberly. Let them remind us that evil is always at the door. Let them remind us to fortify our deep belief in defending ourselves, our families and of our close allies.
May God bless Israel, and may God bless the United States of America.
