Today, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20) made the following statement on President Obama's signing of the U.S.-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012:
"This morning, President Barack Obama once again demonstrated his unwavering dedication to protecting and enhancing Israel's security. The U.S.-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 strengthens Israel's qualitative military edge, supports financial and technological assistance for defense systems, increases opportunities for our countries to participate in joint military exercises, and bolsters our support for the Iron Dome missile defense shield. In short, this bipartisan measure emphasizes that Israeli's security is and will continue to be a top priority of the Obama Administration.
"As Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said this morning, this bill "represents the most comprehensive commitment on the part of the United States to the short and long-term security of its unshakable ally, Israel," -- standing with our friends in times of great uncertainty, and upholding our unbreakable bond.
"Four years after President Obama stood with families in Sderot and promised them that he would invest in technologies to protect their community from incoming rocket and mortar attacks, the Iron Dome missile defense system he sought and funded is saving Israeli lives every day. In signing this bill today, President Obama has once again shown the world that his commitment to Israel is ironclad."
