Washington, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-16) issued the following statement on the House vote in support of Israel.

"A strong and enduring partnership between the United States and Israel is critical to peace in the Middle East. The UN's condemnation of Israel was a direct result of the Obama administration's outrageous betrayal of a decades-old friendship. The action taken by the House was a necessary show of unity with the only freely-elected democracy in the region and the broad bipartisan support it received shows this adminisration is completely out of touch. I look forward to this new Republican Congress and the incoming adminisration working together to rebuild our fractured relationship with Israel, and so many other countries around the world."
