Republicans Will Never Abandon Israel


Share Button

The Republican Party I head sees only one choice – solidarity. I would argue further that the core principals of our party are inherently friendlier to Israel because they are based on the truth of human nature and good and evil. Republicans, unlike our utopian friends in Washington, recognize there is evil in the world, and that evil is emboldened rather than mitigated by concessions and appeasement. Republicans understand that the first and foundational responsibility of securing peace is securing strength.

If Israel is to be safe, if Iran’s nuclear program is to be shut down, then we must recognize that not all political parties are created equally. Ideas have consequences. Elections have consequences. Their results matter not just for America but the world. Israel’s survival requires an America that is strong and a president whose words have meaning and whose promises are kept.

I cannot promise you the outcome of elections this November. I cannot promise what America will do or won’t do. I will, however, promise you this: Republicans across this nation will continue to stand with Israel as we work to secure the future not only for the next generation of Americans, but for the next generation of Israelis as well.
