Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement supporting the democracy of Israel in response to President Biden’s shameful remarks on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“President Biden’s hostile comments toward our ally Israel are shameful. Democracies around the world often have robust debates over policy issues, yet Israel is the only target of Biden’s hostility, criticism, and condemnation. At a time when our foreign adversaries like Iran are emboldened because of Joe Biden’s weakness on the world stage, the Biden Administration should focus on strengthening our support for Israel to stand up to these shared threats. I am proud to always stand with our ally Israel and call on President Biden to do the same.”
