Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) today issued the following statement in reaction to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress:

"It was an honor to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu clearly address the very grave threat a nuclear Iran presents not just to Israel and the United States, but the entire world. It's disappointing that some on the other side of aisle chose to politicize a topic this important, but regardless we heard the message loud and clear. Israel, one of America's strongest allies, is literally fighting for their survival. It is in moments where danger is greatest, that true allies support one another. America must continue to stand strong with Israel. I applaud Speaker Boehner for inviting Netanyahu to come before Congress. It's critical that Congress and the American people hear from Netanyahu about the severe threat of a nuclear Iran."
