The U.S.-Israel relationship is nonnegotiable. Period. The 10th District is the proud home of one of the largest and most passionate pro-Israel communities in America. I have worked to be not just a vote, but an effective and strong voice advancing the U.S.-Israel relationship. Since my first speech on the House floor, I have made protecting our alliance with Israel a top priority in Congress. It's why To Protect Our Heritage, a bipartisan pro-Israel organization, recently endorsed my bid for reelection.
Jerusalem is the eternal, undivided capital of the State of Israel. And the United States and our allies should do everything in our power to isolate Hamas--the Iran-funded terrorist organization in control of the Gaza Strip. Anything less is, to me, unaccpetable.
The strength of the U.S.-Israel relationship is its bipartisan support and strong leadership in Congress, and I certainly look forward to that continuing in the future.
