I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we thank You for the passage of this resolution. Allow all to see the horrors of Hamas and the innocence of the Jewish people.

As people around the world work to downplay Hamas’ actions and blame Israel for all violence, the House of Representatives has nearly unanimously condemned the actions of the terrorist group.

From The Epoch Times. The House overwhelmingly passed on Feb. 14 a resolution condemning rape and sexual violence committed by Hamas on and since Oct. 7.

Introduced by Rep. Louis Frankel (D-Fla.), the resolution passed 418-0, with Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) voting “present.” …

The resolution states that the House “condemns all rape and forms of sexual violence as weapons of war, including those acts committed by Hamas terrorists on and since Oct. 7; calls on all nations to criminalize rape and sexual assault, and hold accountable all perpetrators of sexual violence, including state and non-state armed groups.”

It also “calls on all international bodies to unequivocally condemn the barbaric murder, rape, sexual assault, and kidnapping by Hamas and other terrorists on and since Oct. 7, and hold accountable all perpetrators; reaffirms the United States government’s support for independent, impartial investigations of rape and sexual violence committed by Hamas on and since Oct. 7, and reaffirms its commitment to supporting survivors of rape and sexual violence, including those brutalized on and since Oct. 7.”

Also related to the Middle East, the House overwhelmingly passed a bill, 389-32, prohibiting U.S. officials from recognizing or normalizing ties with Syria under Socialist Ba’ath Party leader Bashar al-Assad. …

Other Bills

The House passage of the Middle East-related measures came just days after the Senate, in a 70 to 29 vote, approved a $95.3 billion bill that includes $14 billion for Israel.

However, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said in a Feb. 12 statement that the bill is dead on arrival in the House.

“House Republicans were crystal clear from the very beginning of discussions that any so-called national security supplemental legislation must recognize that national security begins at our own border,” he said in a Feb. 12 statement.

Nonetheless, the House might bypass Mr. Johnson’s opposition to the current bill through a rarely used mechanism called the discharge petition, which requires a majority of the House to sign on to force measures to be brought up on the House floor. …
