Suozzi Statement In Support of Stand-alone Aid Package to Israel
Glen Cove, NY– Today, former Congressman Tom Suozzi released the following statement in support of the aid package to Israel:
“The Republican-led House will offer a stand-alone bill in support of Israel later today. I support this bill and disagree with the President and Members of the Democratic Party who do not support it.
“While I would prefer that the House Republicans support the comprehensive bipartisan package in the Senate that supports Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan and FINALLY addresses the border, my unequivocal support for Israel demands that I support this stand-alone bill.
“October 7th was the deadliest attack on the Jewish people, including many Americans, since the Holocaust. Over one hundred innocent people are still being held hostage, including our own Plainview native, Omer Neutra.
“Today, the House will consider a clean supplemental appropriations package for Israel that includes critical funding for our military and our ally. People are tired of this political theater from both parties, they want results.
“I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to stand with our ally Israel, getting all of our hostages home, defeating Hamas, and, ultimately, working toward peace and addressing the humanitarian destruction caused by this conflict.”
