Washington, DC – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R,C- NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, just released the following statement regarding the announcement that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be addressing Congress on February 11, 2015:

Speaker Boehner’s invitation to the Prime Minister serves as a reminder that the American people remain strongly committed to our nation's greatest ally, Israel.

From radical Islamic extremism to rogue nations dangerously pursuing nuclear capability, threats abound for America and our allies all over the globe, especially the Middle East, I look forward to hearing the Prime Minister address Congress on his country's goal of strengthening the alliance between our two nations.”

As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Congressman Zeldin will also serve on two important subcommittees: the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa and the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade.
