Congressman Chuck Fleischmann made the following remarks honoring the 64th Anniversary of the founding of Israel.
"Today celebrates the birth of Israel, of one of our greatest moral and strategic allies in the world. In a Middle East full of brutal dictatorships, repression, and terrorism, Israel stands as a shining light of a free nation. Yet it is a nation under siege, surrounded by enemies who wish its destruction, and attacked by terrorist who have no qualms about killing innocents. I would like to wish the people of Israel a Happy 64th Anniversary, and let all Israelis know that we stand with you," Fleischmann said.
Rep. Fleischmann is also a cosponsor of H. Con. Res. 115, a resolution honoring the 64th Anniversary of Israel.
