Fighting for Florida

Today, Senator Rubio issued a statement in response to the potential merger of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, a terrorist group that targets innocent civilians and is dedicated to the destruction of Israel:

“The announced agreement, if it becomes reality, would be a major setback for peace efforts in the Middle East and is not in the best interest of the Palestinian people. Participation in a Palestinian government of any organization, such as Hamas, that fails to renounce their calls for the destruction of Israel and the use of violence should prompt the withdrawal of our assistance. No American taxpayer money should fund a government that includes a terrorist organization dedicated to the murder of innocent civilians.”
