IPF condemns today’s terror attack in Jerusalem, which took the life of Jaddan Assad, a 38 year-old Border Patrol officer, who leaves behind his pregnant wife and 3 year-old son.   The repeated occurrences of automobiles being used as terror weapons against Israeli civilians and soldiers, and the growing tensions in Jerusalem, are deeply concerning.

Israel Policy Forum (IPF) welcomes the announcement of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. We remain guarded in our optimism that the halt to the fighting will be sustained.  It is sad that Hamas refused and violated numerous prior Egyptian ceasefire attempts which closely resemble the current arrangement.  The injuries, loss of life and trauma incurred by Israelis and Palestinians after 50 days of fighting have been incredibly tragic.

Israel Policy Forum (IPF) is deeply saddened that the latest ceasefire attempt was violently upended by a Hamas suicide bomb, and the terror organization’s subsequent capture of an Israeli soldier, Hadar Goldin.

IPF reiterates its strong support for Israel as it defends itself from terror attacks, and hopes that a cease-fire can be reached that stops the violence of the past few weeks and brings long-term quiet to the people of Israel and Gaza.   It is clear that the status quo in Gaza, which has enabled Hamas to invest in innovative ways to threaten and kill Israelis while neglecting the needs of Gaza’s residents, cannot be perpetuated.

Israel Policy Forum (IPF) expresses its continued support for the State of Israel and the Israel Defense Forces in its efforts to destroy Hamas' underground tunnels and stop the firing of rockets toward Israel's population centers.  In recent days, Hamas has continued to fire rockets and used its tunnel network to gain access to Israel with the intent to cause destruction and harm to Israel and its citizens.  IPF continues to support Israel's right to defend its citizens from these attacks.

Israel Policy Forum commends the Government of Egypt in its efforts to facilitate a ceasefire to the hostilities between Israel and Hamas.  We further praise the Government of Israel for its preparedness to agree to a ceasefire, and condemn Hamas’ refusal to do so.

His remarkable address in the U.S. Capitol, in support of peace with Palestinians and friendship with the United States, was that of a true statesmen, leader and peacemaker.
