Congressman Rothman: U.S.-Israel Relationship Is Mutually Dependent

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve Rothman (D-NJ), a member of the House Appropriations Defense, and State and Foreign Operations Subcommittees, released the following statement:

The vital national security interests of the U.S. heavily depend on the survival and security of the State of Israel, just as Israel's vital national security is heavily dependent on its relationship with the U.S.

Most Americans, Israelis, and Palestinians understand that the present situation in the region is unacceptable and unsustainable. However, an insecure and unjust peace for Israel is no real peace for Israel at all.

The U.S. and Israel have been dear and committed friends, and have remained invaluable strategic allies since Israel's founding and recognition by the U.N. in 1948. Our countries have weathered temporary diplomatic storms and diversions of every nature and size for more than 60 years. I am confident that nothing has or will occur that will change that, especially given the stakes for both countries.
