Olson Condemns Iran Missile Test & Message For Israel

March 9, 2016
Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) today issued the following statement condemning Iran’s missile test and aggression toward Israel:

“Iran’s aggression in test firing missiles with the message ‘Israel must be wiped out’ written on them is more evidence of why I opposed the Iran nuclear deal. The US has had a long-standing policy of refusing to negotiate with terrorists. The Iran deal is a negotiation with terrorists. America must stand firmly in defense of our ally Israel in denouncing these actions that are in violation of United Nations resolutions. This action coupled with the capture of US sailors in January are further evidence the nuclear deal was the wrong approach.  Iran must be stopped, I urge the president to engage the global community to halt Iran’s hateful rhetoric and aggressive actions against our allies.”
