I am a strong supporter of the State of Israel. For many decades, Israel has continually been a strong ally of the United States, has consistently promoted the ideals of democracy in the Middle East, and historically has provided invaluable international assistance, saving the lives of countless innocent civilians.
I am very concerned about the safety of Israel. I firmly believe the United States should continue to stand by its longtime friend and ally. Like most Americans and Israelis, I continue to be very alarmed by the reckless behavior of Iran's radical government. The Iranian government is an oppressive regime that withholds basic liberties from its citizens. It continues to be outspoken in its desire to see other nations - including the United States and Israel - utterly destroyed. I have traveled to Israel and have seen firsthand the threat that many Israelis face on a daily basis. I have advocated for U.S. assistance for Israel so that it has the ability to defend itself, and I support legislation that punishes Iran for its dangerous pursuit of weapons of mass destruction. Rest assured that I will continue supporting the State of Israel.
