Nov 2, 2023 | Press Releases

Foreign entities have fueled extremist Palestinian groups and encouraged their hateful actions against the Jewish state of Israel and its people. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Hamas International Financing Prevention Act, the companion legislation to Rubio’s Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad International Terrorism Support Prevention Act

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) applauded the House’s passage of his companion legislation which would impose sanctions on foreign individuals, entities, and governments that provide support to Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other Palestinian terrorist groups. 

  • “The barbaric wave of violence and hatred against Israel and its people is inexcusable. Our nation must be proactive in helping Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East, defend itself from extremist groups that seek to undermine and destroy Israel.” – Senator Rubio

Joining Senator Rubio in cosponsoring this legislation were Senators Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Mike Braun (R-IN), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Rick Scott (R-FL), John Hoeven (R-ND), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Todd Young (R-IN), Steve Daines (R-MT), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), and Susan Collins (R-ME).
