WASHINGTON, DC—House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today issued the following statement regarding House passage of H. Res. 11 – Objecting to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 as an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace, and for other purposes.


“We just saw action a few weeks ago by the United Nations to go after Israel, and pass a resolution that undermines their ability to seek a two-state solution with Palestinians. It’s time that we stand up with our ally and our best friend in the world, Israel. This week, we passed legislation to do just that and to push back against the UN resolution that actually makes it harder to get a peaceful solution in the Middle East. It’s something that’s been a long time coming, and it’s going to be refreshing to have a president in the White House who stands with our allies and takes on our enemies.”
