Conaway, Green Introduce Resolution to Support and Defend Israel
WASHINGTON, DC – Wednesday, Congressmen Mike Conaway and Gene Green of Texas introduced H. Con. Res. 139, a resolution expressing support for the United States to pursue and enter into a military treaty alliance of extended deterrence with the State of Israel.
“Israel is our most important ally in an increasingly unstable region, and America and Israel have a long history of cooperation critical to both nations’ safety and security,” said Congressman Conaway. “Congressional support for Israel has never been stronger, including providing for our mutual defense in the event of an attack from an adversary such as Iran. Now more than ever, we must stand with Israel, and make sure there is no confusion amongst potential adversaries like Iran on our commitment.”
“As the Co-Chair of the Democratic Israel Working Group, I believe we must support our friends and greatest ally in the Middle East during a time of instability in the Islamic Republic of Iran,” said Congressman Green. “We must also hold the Iranian regime accountable and double our efforts to bring peace to the region and continue to tangibly support Israel in its request for peace.”
