Washington, D.C.—Today, Congressman Mike Bost (IL-12) released the following statement after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed both Houses of Congress Tuesday morning:


“It was an honor to witness the Israeli Prime Minister speak to a joint session of Congress today. I believe that this Congress plays a critical role in helping maintain the security, religious freedom and democracy of Israel.  With the spreading uncertainty and unrest in the Middle East, Israel's steadfast friendship remains more important to the United States than ever before.  Now more than ever, our nation needs to stand by and support its important ally as the threat of Iran armed with a nuclear weapon is an unacceptable threat to Israel and the United States.”
