Just recently, Egypt proposed a ceasefire, which was accepted by Israel and rejected by the Iranian-backed terrorist regime Hamas. This is why we have recently reaffirmed in the US House Israel’s right to defend itself against those attacks. And it’s also why I’ve been active in joint U.S.-Israeli missile defense efforts like Iron Dome that are saving lives in Israel and could possibly save lives in the United States as well.
