I issued the following statement on H.R. 4133, the United States-Israel Enhances Security Cooperation Act of 2012. This legislation passed the House with a bipartisan vote of 411-2. I was a cosponsor of the bill.
The United States has no greater ally in the Middle East than the nation of Israel. Israel's interests are America's interests. America’s support for Israel cannot waiver, it cannot wane, and we cannot grow weary in proclaiming the absolute right of Israel to defend herself. Israel is surrounded by enemies, and an enemy of Israel is an enemy of the United States. This legislation reaffirms America’s commitment to the security of Israel.
