Indian-American leaders support Israel : Other prominent Indian-American leaders, including Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy, who are running for the presidential nomination from the Republican Party, have supported Israel after the death of hundreds of people in the unexpected attacks by Hamas. Palestinian militant group Hamas launched several rocket attacks in southern Israel on Saturday, killing at least 700 people and injuring more than 2,000.
Haley told ‘NBC News’ on Sunday, ‘Hamas and the Iranian government supporting it were shouting slogans of ‘the end of Israel, the end of America’. We have to remember this. We are with Israel because Hamas, Hezbollah, Houthi and Iran supporters hate us.
Haley said, ‘We have to remember that whatever has happened to Israel, can also happen in America. I hope we are all united and stand with Israel, because they really need us right now.
In a post on the social media platform ‘X’, Haley asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ‘eliminate them (Hamas)’.

Ramaswami said this
At the same time, Ramaswamy, who is in the race to get the presidential nomination from the Republican Party, said that America has learned an important lesson from the attack on Israel that it cannot be careless about protecting its borders.
Ramaswamy said on Sunday, ‘If it can happen there, it can happen here too. Right now our border itself is completely weak. The situation is bad on the southern border and I went to the northern border yesterday, which is completely open to attack. Hamas chose a time when Israel is completely divided regarding domestic politics, as is the situation in our country.
“I am with Israel,” Mukesh Aghi, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the US India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF), wrote on ‘X’ on Sunday. The post had the Indian flag in the background. .
At the same time, Indian-American community leader Bharat Barai termed Hamas and Hezbollah as the most barbaric terrorist organizations in the world. He said, ‘Israel has every right to destroy this barbaric terrorist organization for its attacks, murder, kidnapping, rape and torture of innocent Israeli civilians. The entire civilized society should condemn Hamas and other such barbaric organizations.
Indian-American Congressman Raja Krishnamurthy said the US stands fully with the people of Israel against this ‘heinous’ terrorist attack and strongly supports its right to defend itself.
Another Indian-American lawmaker, Dr. Ami Bera, said that now more than ever it is important that the US supports Israel’s right to defend its sovereignty.
