SACRAMENTO — Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, issues the following statement in response to terror threats directed at Israel:

“Every Jew and every Palestinian is loved by God, made in the image of God, and deserves equal opportunity to realize their aspirations. There is a moral equivalency in their — and our — common humanity, but there is no moral equivalency between the actions of the terrorists in the Gaza Strip and the democratic State of Israel in defending its citizens.

“The violence and bloodshed directed toward Israel from Hamas is nothing short of terror. We are seeing precisely why Hamas has long been designated a terrorist entity by the United States. It is time for the Biden administration to step up as the leader of the free world and condemn the actions of these extremist groups with moral clarity. People of faith everywhere need to know that the United States does not look with apathy at such heinous violations of human rights.

“President Biden’s platform includes a commitment to the Jewish people and social justice but he has kept people of faith in the U.S. and across the world waiting for far too long. Over 40,000 Hispanic churches in the United States and Latin America are watching and waiting for President Biden to make good on his promise. Part of that promise is to ensure there is no daylight between Israel and the United States. One way President Biden can demonstrate that commitment is to respond to the letter issued today by over forty Senators demanding his administration immediately suspend all negotiations with Iran in Vienna, lift no sanctions on Iran and make it very clear that the United States holds Iran accountable for supplying the rockets used by terrorists in the Gaza Strip to attack Israel.”
