Israel is NOT a Racist Country
Israel has stood as a friend to the United States for many years. A key component of friendship is looking out for one another and standing up for one another. I could not idly stand by as false accusations and repulsive anti-Israel statements were made this week by a group of progressive Democrats.
Let me clear — Israel is not a racist country. It is deeply disturbing and concerning to me that some in Congress have such a profound misunderstanding of Israel and Israeli society.
Racism has no place in Congress or public discord — period. Click to watch remarks I made on the House floor, standing up for Israel, our friend and ally.
