Federation Supports Israel’s Operation Protective Edge

The CRC supports Israel’s Operation Protective Edge to stop the 2,000 rocket attacks by Hamas against Israeli civilians and Israel’s ground invasion to wipe out tunnels used for terrorism. We mourn the loss of life whether it is Israeli or Palestinian and call on Hamas to stop using civilians to protect its missiles. We hope for a swift and successful end to the operation so that peace will prevail for Israel.
