Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) today announced his cosponsorship of H.Con.Res. 115, Recognizing the 64th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel. He issued the following statement.
"In a world full of uncertainty and adversaries who would do America harm, it's important we take time to recognize not only the 64th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel, but also the enduring bond between our two nations. Israel stands as a shining example that democracy can indeed flourish in the Middle East. But that democracy requires vigilance, on their part and ours.
"In my office hangs a framed quote by John. F. Kennedy, which I think is particularly appropriate on this day:
'Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.'"
