Defending America's Allies

The State of Israel is one of our most important allies. I have consistently voted for robust foreign assistance funding to Israel, which has been critical in ensuring its security.  I also believe we must continue advancing the peace process in the Middle East.

The best chance for peace is for both sides to return to talks and negotiate an agreement that will be acceptable to both the Israelis and Palestinians. The United States and the international community have important roles to play in encouraging an environment conducive to successful negotiations and a sustainable peace.
