The July 9th Symposium: 10 Years and Counting...

As Hamas Rockets began falling in Israel, a panel of distinguished speakers and guests convened at The US Capitol on Wednesday July 9, 2014 for The July 9th Symposium, which was held exactly ten years after the issuance of the unjust International Court of Justice Advisory Opinion on Israel's Terrorism Prevention Security Fence.

The day began with a Moment of Silence for the young boys murdered in Israel and for all victims of terrorism.
