Washington D.C. (January 5, 2017) – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:
"Today’s vote was an important first step to reversing the damage caused by President Obama’s actions toward Israel, most recently by not defending Israel at the United Nations. Now, President-elect Trump and the GOP majorities in Congress mark a new direction, one of rebuilding the important bonds between the two countries.
"The overwhelming support for this resolution shows that there is a strong commitment to fighting back against the U.N.’s persistent targeting of Israel. As President-elect Trump has signaled, the time has come to reevaluate U.S. funding of the U.N. and let them know we will not stand by their anti-Israel policies."
