Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries released the following statement:
“The decisive vote by House Democrats in support of the Israel resolution once again demonstrates our strong commitment to the State of Israel and her right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people. The special relationship between the United States and Israel is anchored in our shared democratic values and strategic interests. We reaffirmed that special relationship in a full-throated fashion.
House Democrats will remain steadfast in our ironclad commitment to Israel’s security, as well as to a robust two-state solution where the Israeli and Palestinian people can live side by side in peace and prosperity. I look forward to welcoming President Isaac Herzog to Congress for the Joint Address.”
