Press Release

Congressman Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) today issued the following statement on the situation in Israel and Gaza:

"I am heartbroken by the ongoing violence in Israel. While the Israelis have every right to defend themselves, it is also critical to break the cycle of escalation. Terrorism is unacceptable. So are actions which threaten human rights. The status quo is unacceptable. We must acknowledge the fact that until we achieve a just two-state solution, cycles of violence will continue, human rights will be violated, and both Jews and Palestinians will continue to suffer."
