Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (IL-06), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, issued the following statement today after the House passed the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012.
"With persistent uncertainty in the Middle East, it is critical that the U.S. stand firmly with Israel and its people now more than ever. Israel is a strong and dependable American ally with shared values, strategic interests, and worldviews. Israel stands out as a democratic beacon of hope and reason in a region where Iran's shadow looms ominously. Today's bipartisan resolution reaffirms the commitment of this Congress to stand united with Israel as they continue to work towards genuine peace and bring security to the region."
