J Street is shocked, outraged and horrified by the surprise, ongoing
terrorist onslaught launched by Hamas against Israel today, on Shabbat and
Simchat Torah/Shemini Atzeret.

At this moment, at least 40 Israelis have been reported killed and at
least 800 reported wounded in an unprecedented infiltration of dozens of
terrorist gunmen into communities near the Gaza border and a barrage of
indiscriminate rocket fire against Israeli cities.

Terrifyingly, dozens of Israelis have reportedly been kidnapped and taken
hostage. Many are still trapped in their homes waiting desperately to be
saved, as live combat in many border communities is ongoing. This is a day
of profound anguish and horror. Israel is in a state of war and national

J Street stands in solidarity with the Israeli people in this hour of
terrible danger, fear and worry. We stand with the Israeli armed forces
working furiously to repel this assault, protect Israelis and defeat the
terrorist onslaught.

Our thoughts and our hearts are with all of the victims and their loved
ones, and in particular with the many communities facing bombardments of
rocket fire, infiltrator attacks and the kidnapping of family members.

We know this is a deeply distressing moment for all of us – especially for
the many members of our community here in the United States who have
family and loved ones in Israel, and for our staff and partners in the

Hamas’ murderous actions must be met with unequivocal condemnation from
the entire international community. We hope for their swift and decisive
defeat, and urge the US government to do everything possible to assist the
State of Israel in confronting this threat, defending its citizens, and
preventing a slide into even further conflagration and suffering for
Israelis and Palestinians.
