President Obama is no friend of Israel, and his promises there are as empty as the ones he makes here at home.

Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement in response to remarks delivered in Israel by Philip Gordon, an advisor to President Obama on Middle East issues:

“The Obama Administration remains naïve and arrogant when it comes to Israel’s security. Mr. Gordon accused Israel of not wanting to pursue peace, as he spoke at a conference in Tel Aviv that was interrupted by warning sirens due to incoming rocket fire from Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Rockets have been raining down on Israel in recent weeks, fired by Hamas, a terror group that upholds the Palestinian government. How exactly does the Obama Administration believe that legitimizing the Palestinian government will assure peace for Israel? Obama’s policies have been a failure throughout the Middle East, yet now his staff is lecturing the government of Israel on issues of security. President Obama is no friend of Israel, and his promises there are as empty as the ones he makes here at home. The people of Israel would do well to ignore him and his advisors, like Philip Gordon.”

Dr. John Fleming is Chairman of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs and is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He is a physician and small business owner and represents the 4th Congressional District of Louisiana.
