ROCK HILL, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Two Republican Presidential Candidates visited Rock Hill recently and brought with them the Consul General of Israel.
As part of their visit, the Republicans welcomed, Anat Sultan-Dadon, who is the Consul General of Israel to the Southeastern United States.
Sultan-Dadon spoke about Hamas’ recent attack on her country.
Presidential candidates aren’t the only ones to talk about the fighting between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster commented on the conflict during a recent visit to the City of Tega Cay.
The Governor made it clear that South Carolina does not support the recent terror attacks on innocent civilians happening in Israel. McMaster added he believes Hamas should be completely removed from Israel and its surrounding area, urging Americans to pray for peace as a way to show support.
“It’s sad, it’s barbaric what Hamas is doing,” Governor McMaster said. “They need to be accountable, they need to be stopped, and need to be eliminated. We just cannot let this happen and we support Israel one hundred percent.”
The Governor said South Carolina has troops in reserves and the national guard currently on stand-by, and while they are not expected to deploy or act in any way, Governor McMaster said they will be ready just in case the soldiers are needed.
