“America’s foreign policy strategy must fully defend our allies and support stability in the Middle East,” Steube said. “Without being able to ensure that U.S. assistance to Gaza or the Palestinian Authority will not be used to fund global terrorism or get funneled to our adversaries in Iran, the Biden Administration is recklessly trying to abandon our Israeli allies and risking all Americans’ security.”

Gimenez‘s resolution also included recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., praised Israel and called for the Biden administration to do more to support that nation.
U.S. Sec. of State Henry Blinken weighed in on Monday on why the administration wanted the U.S. to rejoin the council.
At the start of last year, U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., the first Green Beret to serve in Congress, introduced the “United States-Israel PTSD Collaborative Research Act” which his office explained when he unveiled it.
U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-NY, the new chairman of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced his picks to lead the subcommittees last week and retained Deutch.
Earlier in January, Diaz-Balart announced he was staying on as the top Republicans on the U.S. House Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Subcommittee.
