Museum Statement on Hamas Attack on Israel

  • by

“The National Museum of American Jewish Military History stands solidly and firmly with Israel and the men and women who, in the face of Hamas fanatic fighters, stood their ground and fought to their death to defend their Nation. Hamas is a terrorist organization and terrorist activities are never justified,” said Museum President Elaine Bernstein.

Reports from the Middle East share barbaric atrocities including innocents being murdered at a concert, whole families randomly being executed, and women and children being kidnapped and held hostage for future trade-offs. Bernstein was emphatic, “The destruction of Israel is not an option; Hamas’ horrific actions are being dealt with swiftly to protect Israel and its citizens. NMAJMH offers condolences to those who lost loved ones, prayers for the wounded to recover, and swift judgment to those responsible for their unspeakable heinous actions. We Stand with Israel – Israel Forever.”

NMAJMH will continue to monitor details as events unfold.
