Rep. Malliotakis to Newsmax: Bring Home US Citizens From Israel

By    |   Thursday, 12 October 2023 01:02 PM EDT

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., told Newsmax on Thursday that President Joe Biden's administration must "take swift action" to bring American citizens home from Israel after the outbreak of war with Hamas.

"I'm not satisfied with the response we've seen from the administration to date," Malliotakis said on "National Report."

Malliotakis singled out the lack of action on the administration's part to get American citizens trapped in Israel back to the U.S.

"We're on the fifth day of this and we still have not sent any military planes or chartered any commercial aircrafts to get our citizens home," she said.

Malliotakis said that because many commercial flights are being canceled, "many other countries Germany, Poland, Mexico, Canada, they have sent either military aircraft or they've chartered commercial airlines to be able to get those citizens home. And I can't understand why the United States of America has not yet done this.

"My colleagues and I are pressuring this administration to take swift action to direct the Department of State and the Department of Defense to work collectively to do this and make sure that we get every American citizen who wants to return home as soon as possible."

Malliotakis also criticized the United Nations Security Council for not issuing a statement that condemns Hamas and the attack as an act of terrorism.

"To think that the United Nations was created following the Holocaust, and this is the worst carnage we've seen of Jewish people since that time, and that the UN Security Council cannot issue a statement, a simple statement condemning Hamas and the atrocities of their terrorist activity, is just unconscionable to me," she said.
