US Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy issues a statement in support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the Biden administration over the Israeli government’s effort to overhaul the judiciary.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu is an Israeli patriot, statesman, and most importantly, a great friend of the United States of America. Free societies have vigorous and open debate. Israel is no exception. I support Prime Minister Netanyahu, and America’s support for Israel’s strong, vibrant democracy is unwavering. Now is an important time for Americans to stand together in support of our long, mutually respectful, and important friendship with Israel,” McCarthy says.
