Senator Cornyn Introduces Resolution in Support of Israel
by John Cornyn on June 11, 2010 at 7:10 PM
In recognition of the State of Israel as a strong and steadfast ally to the United States, Wednesday, I introduced a resolution to express the sense of the Senate that Israel has an undeniable right to self-defense and to condemn the recent destabilizing actions by terrorist operatives and extremists aboard the Mavi Marmara.
Every country has a right to defend itself, and Israel is no different. The flotilla was a disgraceful and premeditated attempt to provoke a violent confrontation with Israel, hidden under the cloak of a humanitarian relief effort. This type of despicable conduct must be condemned and I hope my colleagues will join me in cosponsoring this important resolution to help remind the world that the United States stands with Israel.
