Rep. Marino Slams Obama Admin’s Refusal to Back Israel

January 6, 2017
Press Release
Rep. Marino voted in favor of H. Res. 11 rejecting U.N. Security Council Res. 2334 and calling for its repeal

Washington, D.C. — Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H. Res. 11 objecting to the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 as an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Rep. Tom Marino (PA-10) voted in favor of the resolution and released the following statement: 

“Throughout his time in office, President Obama has continually expressed contempt towards Israel, our strongest democratic ally in the Middle East. Failing to stop the clearly one-sided and dangerous U.N. resolution not only threatens peace in the region, but actually emboldens terrorist forces in their attempts to destroy Israel by any means necessary. I am sickened by this administration’s break with longstanding U.S. foreign policy to stand by Israel. I take solace in the fact that a Trump administration will protect this cherished relationship and look forward to many more years of partnership between our two nations.”
