US Lawmaker’s Office Repeatedly Defaced with Pro-Hamas Messaging

A Texas lawmaker’s office was repeatedly vandalized this week with messages criticizing the congress member’s position on the Israel-Hamas war.

U.S. Rep. Monica De La Cruz said on Thursday police are investigating what she described in a press release as pro-Hamas messages scrawled on her District 15 office in McAllen, Texas.

The vandals wrote on her door, entryway, and sheets left outside the office, “Monica murders,” “Israel kills Jews too,” “Israel is doing genocide and you support it,” and “You can’t escape your crimes Monica.”

De La Cruz believes she was targeted because her South Texas district has a “small but vibrant Jewish community,” of which she counts herself as an ally, she said.

“My support for Israel and the Jewish community is, always has been, and always will be unwavering,” De La Cruz said. “I make no apologies for standing firmly against anti-Semitism. These vandals will not intimidate or silence me.”

The war in Israel and Gaza, spurred by a surprise Hamas attack last month, has already claimed the lives of thousands, including numerous civilians killed on the Oct. 7 attack.

On Thursday, the White House announced that Israel has agreed to four-hour daily humanitarian pauses in the fighting.
