Weber Votes to Support Israel

Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) – On January 5, the United States House of Representatives voted on House Resolution 11, Objecting to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 as an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace, and for other purposes. The resolution passed by a vote of 342 to 80. Congressman Randy Weber (R-Friendswood), a member of the Foreign Affairs committee, issued the following statement:

“In choosing to abstain from the Security Council’s resolution, which intentionally and unfairly targets Israel, the Administration once again showed cowardice instead of strength; abandonment instead of loyalty. The UN resolution places blame for the current state of affairs between Israel and the Palestinian Authority entirely on Israel, making a peaceful two-state solution even more difficult to achieve. The Administration’s actions on December 23 broke with a decades-old tradition of vetoing any one-sided, anti-Israeli actions. My House colleagues and I acted today to show Israel that our commitment to her well-being is unwavering, and that we are her committed ally.”
