U.S. Senator Ted Cruz called out the Obama administration for failing to acknowledge American victims of Palestinian terrorist attacks as he chaired a hearing for the Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts on Wednesday.
During the hearing, titled “Justice Forsaken: How the Federal Government Fails the American Victims of Iranian and Palestinian Terrorism,” Cruz and Senator Chris Coons (D-Delaware) drew focus on the federal government’s failure to support the American victims of Iranian and Palestinian terror in their search for justice.
Two terror victims testified before the subcommittee as others were in attendance.
“The history of Palestinian and Iranian terrorism against Americans is extensive and continues to this day. Americans have long been the targets of Palestinian hijackings, suicide bombings, and assassinations, in part because of our nation’s close relationship and friendship with Israel,” Cruz said in his opening remarks. “In litigation, the Administration sides with the terrorist against American citizens, and when negotiating with the Ayatollah Khamenei, the Administration ignores American hostages languishing in Iranian prisons; it ignores the victims of terrorism… That is a national disgrace.”
“Sadly, even today, the killing still rages. This fall, Palestinian terror attacks in Israel have surged, in the form of stabbings, car-ramming, and shooting attacks. Terrorists have killed nearly a dozen persons, and wounded over 120–some of them Americans,” the Republican Senator and presidential candidates pointed out. “This hearing is designed to shine a light on the obligation of the government of the United States to stand with American citizens against terrorists who would murder innocent Americans.
Cruz also called the Iranian nuclear deal “the worst betrayal” of American terror victims.
Watch Cruz’s opening statement below:
Praying justice on evil doers and blessings on prisoners and people that have been hurt by them. God hear Your children cry out.
God Bless Senator Cruz for his discernment and truth. God Bless him for his courage and boldness to speak out in truth when most are cloaked in darkness and cannot see the truth. Our government is made up of people, men and women, sinful men and women. Our President is an evil man who sides with evil forces in order to force his evil agenda on America and the world. He will not defend Americans slaughtered by terrorists, he will not defend our military whom he despises, and he will lift a finger to enforce our laws because the truth is not in him. He is a lawless man running a lawless administration. Obama is of his father, the devil. In order to accomplish his evil deeds, he must lie and deceive the American people. This he has done and continues to do. In order to establish a One World Government, America must fall as a super power. That has already happened. The irony here is that this evil man, Obama, is doing God’s will, because he is setting the stage for the anti-Christ to assume power over the whole world after God removes the church from earth. That is about to happen. Then all those who have rejected God and his Son, Jesus Christ, will bow down and serve Satan’s son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, who will control their every move and murder those who oppose him with abandon.
We must do as Yahweh’s Holy Word instructs us to do for our beloved nation in 2Chronicles 7:14. As First Nations Christian, we stand with Israel. Gen. 12:3.
