Congressman Canseco's Statement on Israel's Independence

Apr 26, 2012


Washington – Congressman Francisco “Quico” Canseco (TX-23), a strong supporter of the U.S.-Israel alliance, issued the following statement honoring the 64th anniversary of the independence of Israel:
“When Israel  declared its independence 64 years ago, it did so in order to provide the opportunity for Jewish people around the world to reestablish their sacred homeland.  The United States was one of the first nations to recognize and support the new State of Israel. Over the years the two nations have built upon this special relationship through these historical ties, as well as shared democratic values and strategic objectives in the Middle East.” 
“I strongly believe the United States’ alliance with Israel is of tremendous importance and should be maintained.  As a member of the House of Representatives, I look forward to continuing and building upon the important and  enduring relationship forged between the United States and Israel. ”
