Schaer, Wisniewski & Watson Coleman Measure to Support Israel in Defense Against Hamas Approved by AssemblyA bipartisan resolution sponsored by Assembly Democrats Gary S. Schaer, John S. Wisniewski and Bonnie Watson Coleman to express support for the State of Israel and call for increased U.S. aid to Israel as it fights against terrorist attacks was approved Monday in the Assembly.
"There can be no doubt whatsoever about where the state of New Jersey stands on this matter.
