Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement in support of the state of Israel and the ongoing attacks against it:

“For decades, we have heard that Israel is our biggest ally in the Middle East. I stand firmly behind that manifesto. I was pleased to hear that President Obama picked up his Presidential telephone to call Prime Minister Netanyahu, but I believe that we need to send a more defined message to Israel’s foes: if you are Israel’s enemy, then you are an enemy of the United States.

“I introduced an amendment to the FY15 National Defense Authorization Act in order to fully support Israel’s lawful exercise of self-defense, including actions to halt aggression. It is time that our actions speak louder than our words. Recently, Israel intercepted Iranian-funded weapons headed for Gaza. Unfortunately, this is part of a long culture of providing weapons and rocket parts to terrorist cells based in the Gaza strip. Therefore, Israel should have the absolute right to protect her citizen’s from attacks launched by Hamas terrorists.

“If we do not stand in support of Israel, we will witness the demise of our greatest ally in the Middle East due to lack of support and action from the White House. I urge all my House colleagues  to remain committed towards pushing this Administration to firmly stand behind Israel.”
