See below for reactions, by President Joe Biden, Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, Representatives Bobby Scott (D-VA03), Jennifer McClellan (D-VA04), Abigail Spanberger (D-VA07), Don Beyer (D-VA08), Gerry Connolly (D-VA11), etc.; former Representatives Barbara Comstock (R-VA10) and Denver Riggleman (R-VA05); as well as Virginia’s first Jewish Speaker of the House of Delegates, Eileen Filler-Corn; to the horrific terrorist attacks by Hamas against Israel earlier today. Really, really disturbing videos, photos, etc. coming in from Israel, where I’ve had the opportunities to study and travel extensively. My thoughts are very much with that country today…
Virginia’s first Jewish Speaker of the House of Delegates says she’s “in shock and contacting loved ones in Israel after devastating news of the murderous act by Hamas”
Rep. Jennifer McClellan (D-VA04) expresses her support for Israel following the horrific attacks and bloodshed caused by terrorist group Hamas
As atrocities happen around the world, and women and children- civilians are under attack in Israel and Ukraine, this is what this 4x indicted narcissist talks about. God save us https://t.co/TZv7E2jWLd

Almost 50 years to the day of the Yom Kippur war.
I’ve been there. I’ve walked tunnels. The proximity and closeness in Israel is hard to imagine for Americans.
US must support our ally, Israel. https://t.co/MWwptAydep

P.S. On a day of tragedy, far-right-extremist/insurrecionist Rep. Bob Good (R-VA05) smears the United States with…a lie, of course. Just a horrible, horrible person. Who votes for someone like this?!?
