October 17, 2023

West Hollywood, CA – The Israeli-American Civic Action Network (ICAN) commends the West Hollywood City Council for its resolution supporting Israel. This action is a direct response to the escalating acts of terrorism faced by Israel.

“We thank Councilmember Meister for introducing this resolution, Mayor Shyne for her vocal support, and Councilmember Heilman for speaking with and consoling members of our community during this time of crisis,” stated Dillon Hosier, CEO at ICAN.

The resolution serves as a poignant reminder of the existential threats that Israel faces, particularly at a time when the nation is grappling with a death toll exceeding 1,300 and the kidnapping of more than 200 individuals. The Council’s action is a clarion call for the international community to recognize the severity of the situation and to give Israel the freedom to conduct military operations against Hamas.

ICAN supports the West Hollywood City Council’s straightforward condemnation of terrorism and its call for robust U.S. backing for Israel. In an environment where hostile antisemitic elements aim to undermine such actions, the Council’s resolution stands as a clear statement of policy and intent.The Israeli-American Civic Action Network is dedicated to empowering Israeli immigrants and American allies to create change for a better America, a more secure Israel, and a stronger U.S. – Israel alliance through advocacy education and civic action.
