Congressman Charles W. Boustany, Jr. M.D. (South Louisiana) issued the following statement in response to news today of the recent unrest in the Middle East:
"The people living throughout this region deserve peace and stability. The continued aggressive actions by terrorist organizations supported by rogue nations is a stark reminder of threats facing the United States and our allies in the region. Our nation must stand with its key ally: Israel. I am committed to supporting Israel in defending itself.
"As Israel continues to defend itself, now more than ever, it is vital for Arab leaders to stand up for peace over terror. Their actions must match their words as efforts are made to end the violence and restore stability."
