Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) slammed those who compare Israel’s war of defense in the Gaza Strip to the firing of deadly rockets by Hamas and other terrorist groups.

“The dangerous notion is that there’s a moral equivalence between the actions of Hamas and those of the State of Israel,” said Schumer. “It must be said, there’s no moral equivalence between the actions and reactions of Israel, and Hamas and the Palestinian Authority to the violence that has occurred there.”
