Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, issued the following statement in response to the address of His Excellency Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, before a joint meeting of Congress:
"Prime Minister Netanyahu delivered a strong and powerful speech before Congress and to the American People. Israel does not stand alone. The United States stands with Israel and the Israeli people in strong support of their right to defend themselves from terrorism and the threat of a nuclear Iran. This Congress must cast aside partisan politics and work together to ensure the safety and security of Israel with tough economic sanctions and a vote to end Iran's nuclear program permanently. America's commitment to Israel must always remain steadfast and our unique bond of friendship must never be broken."
