Congressman Mike Lawler’s Historic Bipartisan Resolution Affirms Israel’s Right to Exist {VIDEO}

In a momentous display of bipartisan unity, Congressman Mike Lawler (NY-17) celebrated the resounding success of his resolution, H.Res.888, which reaffirms Israel’s fundamental right to exist. The resolution passed the House Floor with an astonishing majority, securing 412 votes in favor, with only one dissenting voice.

On Tuesday night, Congressman Mike Lawler, a staunch advocate for strong U.S.-Israel relations, issued a heartfelt statement following the resolution’s passage, emphasizing the importance of standing by Israel in the face of rising hostility.

“Tonight, the House of Representatives, in an overwhelming and bipartisan fashion, unequivocally reaffirmed Israel’s right to exist in the face of an unprecedented wave of hate against it,” declared Congressman Mike Lawler. He drew attention to the historical significance of the United States’ immediate recognition of Israel after its founding, which occurred just 11 minutes after the nation’s establishment. Over the course of 75 years, the United States has consistently maintained its unwavering support for Israel.

The resolution’s bipartisan triumph was especially noteworthy, as 210 Republicans and 202 Democrats set aside their political differences to demonstrate solidarity with one of America’s closest allies in the Middle East. This remarkable display of unity underscored the shared commitment to preserving Israel’s existence and security.

Congressman Lawler further highlighted the exceptional nature of Israel within the Middle East, describing it as “the only multicultural, multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and multi-religious democracy in the region.” He painted Israel as a beacon of hope, freedom, and opportunity in a turbulent part of the world. In his closing remarks, he reaffirmed the resolution’s significance, asserting that it symbolizes Congress’s unwavering support for the state of Israel, the recognition of its right to exist, and the affirmation of the Jewish people’s right to live peacefully in their ancestral homeland.

H.Res.888’s passage marks a historic moment in U.S. legislative history, demonstrating that bipartisan cooperation can prevail in the face of global challenges. It stands as a testament to the enduring friendship and partnership between the United States and Israel, as both nations work together to ensure peace and security in the region.
