Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) issued the following statement today after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress:
"I applaud the Prime Minister's commitment to our shared goal of peace. His speech was particularly important given the President's recent comments regarding Israel's 1967 borders. Regardless of what the President meant, he sent the wrong message to Israel and the world. The people of Israel are our friends and are critical to peace and stability in the Middle East, and I believe the United States must stand up for Israel and its right to exist."
