Leslie Lewallen campaign challenges congresswoman on her stance on terrorist actions from Hezbollah
CAMAS – Amid the tumult and loss of innocent lives in the Middle East, local representatives should have no hesitation condemning terrorist actions from Hezbollah, Syrian terror groups, and Hamas. However, Democrats have largely refused to denounce terrorists for their unprovoked attack on Israel, and Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez appears to be one of them.
In a series of blog posts under a pseudonym, Perez seems to write in favor of Hezbollah and refuses to call them a terrorist organization. The following is a direct quote from her post: “…Nothing is black or while though and its unfair to say Hezbollah is an entirely terrorist group…”
The fact that Hezbollah could be confused as anything other than a terrorist organization should be baffling to Washington State voters. Perez has been slow to offer a response on the aggression in the Middle East and has not come out against terror as many of her Republican counterparts have.
Here are a few questions Southwest Washington voters deserve to see Gluesenkamp Perez’s answers on:
- Were you the author of the blog post siding with Hezbollah?
- Why won’t you condemn terrorism?
- Why don’t you hold your colleagues accountable for ignoring the actions of terrorists in the Middle East?
- Do you still believe Hezbollah is not a terrorist organization?
Perez’s unwillingness to take a strong stance against terror, coupled with her offers to repair ANTIFA leaf blowers to spread tear gas in Portland and her desire to make the moderate Blue Dogs caucus more like ANTIFA make a strong case as to why Perez should not be re-elected in 2024. She is letting her true beliefs show and they are not in line with Washington State voters.
