Serial No. 114-56: Israel Imperiled: Threats to the Jewish State, Joint Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade and the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, Second Session, April 19, 2015 [open pdf - 3MB]
This is the April 19, 2015 hearing on "Israel Imperiled: Threats to the Jewish State" held before the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade and the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa. From the opening statement of Ted Poe: "The state of Israel has always been surrounded by threats since its existence--threats by nations and terror groups that hate Israel because it is a Jewish state. The goal of these haters has been to eliminate the state of Israel, an aggression started as soon as Israel became an established state. Arab armies amassed on its borders to destroy it. But yet, Israel has continued to exist in the face of suicide bombers and terrorist onslaughts like no country in history. Most recently, 16 people in a bus were wounded yesterday in a bus bombing in Jerusalem, reminiscent of the wave of Palestinian suicide bombings that claimed so many lives a decade ago. In recent years, the threats to Israel have increased and become even more dangerous. The volatile situation in Syria and its transformation into a full blown terrorist haven directly threatens Israel's security." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael Rubin, Jonathan Schanzer, David Makovsky, and Tamara Cofman Wittes.
