U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced a resolution to praise Israel’s normalization of relations with the UAE and Bahrain. Inhofe’s resolution also praises President Trump’s efforts to bring peace to the Middle East and urges additional Arab states to normalize relations with Israel.
“It is very encouraging to see how far U.S.-Israel relations have come under the direction of President Trump,” Inhofe said. “When the state of Israel was founded in 1948, we stood with her; we were the first ones. And because we took a stand, other nations in the world followed our lead and recognized the Jewish state. I’m proud to reinforce that strong tradition of supporting Israel today by introducing this resolution as Israel deepens its cooperation with America’s Arab partners, thanks to President Trump’s leadership. I will continue to encourage this administration to work with Israel in their efforts to bring peace to the Middle East.”
