Statement from Chairman Joe Gruters:

Less than one year ago, the United States entered into The Abraham Accord, a joint statement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States as a vehicle to address challenges through cooperation and dialogue in a real effort to advance longstanding peace in the region.  Shamefully, Hamas is actively working to destroy the foundation of this agreement by turning growing trust into hate. The free world cannot allow that to occur.

Hamas is a terrorist group that is launching rockets onto the civilian population of Israel.  The Israeli’s have every right to defend themselves against terrorists such as Hamas.  It should not need reminding that Israel is the only democracy and greatest ally to the United States in the Middle East. The RPOF stands in solidarity with our Jewish friends that call Florida home and Israel especially during these deadly days of attacks against the men, women and children of this great nation.
