The Kyrillos for U.S. Senate campaign released the following statement from Senator Kyrillos today:
"The decision of the White House to deny a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu at this time of uncertainty in the Middle East and when the Prime Minister is a short Acela train ride away from Washington is not only insulting, but a dereliction of duty. With ongoing news reports that Iran is making gains in their nuclear program, the crises in Syria and Egypt, and a fresh attack in Libya killing the US Ambassador, now is an obvious time for a meeting between the leaders of our two countries. It's the right thing to do at a sensitive time for Israel's security and world peace. I note Senator Menendez' silence and urge him to stand up for Israel and call on the President to do the same."
