Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, shared enthusiastic photographs of a home in Israel that was obliterated in a bombarding by the Palestinian Authority-supported dread gathering Hamas.
The Hamas assault killed the overseer of the old lady who lived in the Ashkelon home, as indicated by Cruz’s tweet, which called the assault “shocking.”
“On many occasions, I’ve seen a Mezuzah holding tight a door jamb,” Cruz wrote in his first tweet, which incorporated an image of the obliterated door jamb actually bearing the home’s mezuzah. “This is the first occasion when I’ve seen one on a home besieged by fear mongers.”
“This is all that remaining parts,” the congressperson added.
Cruz also posted a picture of the Israeli woman’s walker standing like an obelisk in the rubble of her home as well as what was left of the house after it was “destroyed by a Hamas rocket.”
The Texas Republican’s tweets come as he and fellow Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., traveled to Israel on Sunday to assess the damage from the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas.
Cruz told the Washington Free Beacon on Sunday that the purpose of the trip was “to hear and see firsthand what our Israeli allies need to defend themselves and to show the international community that we stand unequivocally with Israel.”
The conflict saw hundreds of rockets fly indiscriminately into Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in attacks by Hamas that were condemned by Republicans and Democrats alike.
The rocket attacks came after confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli police at the Al-Aqsa mosque regarding the threats of evicting Palestinians in eastern Jerusalem.
