Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Gus Bilirakis (FL-12) released the following statement today regarding the passage of bipartisan legislation condemning the recent anti-Israel resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council.

“Now is the time to rebuild our relationship with Israel, and signal to her and the rest of the world where America stands,” said Bilirakis. “Last month, the United Nations, with the blessing of the Obama Administration, single-handedly damaged the US’s longstanding relationship with our best and only democratic ally in the Middle East. That is not who we are as a country, and that is not the direction we want to go. I am proud the House today demonstrated overwhelming bipartisan support for condemning these anti-Israel actions.”
