Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman David Rouzer (NC-7) released the following statement ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress today:

“I look forward to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech today.  The nation of Israel is our friend in the War on Terror and the Prime Minister’s perspective on the situation in the Middle East is important to our nation’s national security and the safety of our allies around the world.  From the growing threat of ISIS to the Iranian nuclear agenda, our partnership and cooperation with Israel is central to defeating radical Islamists.”
