Richmond, VA – George Allen released the following statement regarding President Obama’s calls for Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders:
“President Obama's call for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations with Israel forfeiting her lands and returning to borders of pre-1967 represents a dangerous shift in U.S. policy concerning Israel. This proposal would risk the lives of the men, women and children of Israel. In this unsettled region, Israel's democracy is a well-spring in the wilderness. The United States should stand with our ally -- not undermine Israel's ability to negotiate or put its national security at risk. Virginia and America have a strong, historic friendship with Israel. Virginians deserve an answer to the question: does Tim Kaine agree with President Obama undermining the security of our friend and ally, the State of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East?”George Allen for U.S. Senate. Conservative leadership. Proven results. That's the George Allen we know and trust.
