Frankel Statement for the Congressional Record on passage of U.S.-Israel Strategic Partnership Act: 

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the U.S. Israel Strategic Partnership Act to designate our Israeli ally as a “major strategic partner” of the United States.

To the casual observer, it seems that Israel is nothing more than a war zone. The only time Israel appears to be discussed in the news is when something bad happens. A Palestinian terrorist attacks worshipers at a synagogue in Jerusalem. Peace negotiations break down. War in Gaza.

Washington DC – Today, Representative Lois Frankel reiterated her support for Israel as the country defends itself against Hamas’ vast underground tunnel network.
