Referred to House (sub)committee

70 cosponsors

Citing the threat to international security and regional stability posed by the situation in Gaza, this resolution would, inter alia, (1) express the House’s support for Israel’s pledge to maintain its security by constructing walls along the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Egypt; and (2) recognize ‘the remarkable success of the existing security fence in keeping out terrorists,’ whereas before it was built ‘terrorists had simply to walk across the border.’
