Statement on Israel-Hamas War

I wholeheartedly condemn all attacks on Jewish people in Israel and abroad. The Hamas terrorist attacks and provocation of war are absolutely despicable. Spectacular acts of cowardice and malice must be met with unwavering unity and resolve.

Peace in the Middle East is not an unattainable goal, diplomats and leaders everywhere should not lose sight of peace and nonviolence.

For the called-upon Israeli troops and reservists who live in our region and the U.S., we hope for a quick and safe return.

Tompkins County residents and U.S. citizens or their family members currently in Israel are encouraged to communicate with the U.S. State Department if in need of service or travel out of the affected area.

Shawna Black Chairwoman, Tompkins County Legislature
