For Immediate Release: May 18, 2021
Today, Congressman Sessions (TX-17) released the following statement about the rising tensions in the Middle East stemming from the Israel-Palestine conflict.
"Contrary to the Biden administration's inaccurate assessment, the Middle East, predominately Israel, was the happiest under President Trump. Israel is a country that loves peace and respects differences. However, they are not a country that will sit back and allow itself to be taken advantage of by people who intend to inflict harm on their citizens. Peace is the desired goal. But, let's be clear, Israel will and should defend itself. The United States of America must reaffirm unified support to our longtime ally and friend, Israel."
