Supporting Our Ally Israel

As a strong supporter of the state of Israel, I believe we must continue to repair the U.S. – Israel Relationship that was strained under the previous Administration.  It was a great honor to volunteer alongside the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) following my service in the Army because the United States and Israel share common values like freedom and respect for human dignity. As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, I have worked to oppose the dangerous BDS movement, support Israel’s efforts to counter instability in the Middle East, and prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Introducing legislation to combat radical Islamic terrorism
  • Passing legislation to cut off U.S. aid funding being used to reward anti-Israel terrorists
  • Increasing U.S. – Israel joint missile defense activities
  • Increasing sanctions on Iran
  • Working to combat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement
  • Strongly supporting withdrawal from the Iran deal and recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel
  • Serving as a member of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat Anti-Semitism
  • Participating in a Congressional delegation to Israel
