Sen. Sampson Stands with Israel

May 18, 2021

Senator Rob Sampson (R-16) offers the following statement in reaction to the conflict occurring in the Middle East:

“I cannot remain silent as the national and world media distort what is happening in the Middle East. The coverage of the conflict between Israel and Palestine has been colored with immense bias and lacks any measure of fairness.

“I stand for peace first and foremost, but there are some situations that demand a response. In reviewing the escalating tensions, rising death toll, and senseless destruction in Jerusalem, there is only one aggressor.  Israel has every right to defend itself.

“Thousands of missile attacks, homes and cities destroyed, and innocent lives taken, all in a renewed push to overpower the Israeli nation. This situation merits America and its leaders speaking out and standing up for Israel.”
