Republican members of Alabama's federal delegation took time on Tuesday to recognize Israel's Independence Day by renewing calls to support Israel in the ongoing conflicts with neighboring nations. 

Support for the Jewish people has been volatile in the United States since Oct. 7, 2023, after Hamas launched an attack against Israel, killing and wounding hundreds while kidnapping dozens more.

However, support for Israel has not waned in Congress, especially among Alabama's congressional delegation, who have remained solidly pro-Israel and even escalated support since the attacks and subsequent anti-Israel protests.

Several Alabama congressmen recognized the Israeli holiday of Yom Ha'atzmaut, the day commemorating Israel's declared independence on May 14, 1948. With the increased hostilities in Israel since the October 13 attacks, support for Israel has only grown amongst Alabama lawmakers.
