Statement from the Chair of
The Curry County Democrats
on the Terror Attack by Hamas
on Israelis and Palestinians
I, sadly, recognize the attack that has taken place on our Jewish brothers and sisters in Israel on Saturday, October 7th by Hamas from Gaza. Reports and images are horrific and shocking. Obviously, this is an inhumane act of hate and violence. An act that should not and is not condoned in any way by us as Oregonians, Americans or Humans.
Palestinians are not to be overlooked in this violence. They too, wish nothing more than to live their lives in peace. Hamas does not represent the people of Palestine. To the contrary, Hamas uses them as human shields in furtherance of their terroristic, hate-filled actions. We openly and outwardly condemn the behavior of Hamas.
As a County Party we support our Jewish and Palestinian neighbors and friends. We open our arms, ears and hearts to you. Please reach out to the Curry County Democrats for our assistance and help in any way you may need.
We have been seeing increased acts of hate and violence on people of our own Nation. As your Chair, I ask you to pay close attention to where we stand as a Nation. We have a VERY important upcoming election in 2024 in which we can act through voting to reduce the power of those who wish to carry out this type of inhumanity in our own Country.
My intent is not to frighten you, but rather to draw your attention to the ways in which we, as Democrats, make a difference.
Mr. Bret Cecil
Chair, Curry County Democrats
