In the interest of peace and standing by our allies, I will now propose a bill called the Defense of Israel Act. This legislation will cut off arms and aid to the Syrian rebels and any other group that threatens Israel.
Our aid money should not be sent to enemies of America. And it should not be sent to those who seek the destruction of Israel, whether that be Hamas or Syrian rebels.
Our current policies regarding military aid to Syria simply do not make sense, yet this administration and many in Congress continue to remain completely deaf. Washington needs to hear the message loud and clear — again — concerning Syria: We do not know who these people are!
