Ted Passes Resolution in Support of Israel

Tallahassee, FL- The Florida Senate on Friday threw its support behind one of our most important allies, unanimously passing a bi-partisan resolution in support of the state of Israel.

SR 66A, sponsored by Sen. Ted Deutch (D-Boca Raton) expresses solidarity with Israel and support of its right to defend itself from Hamas attacks. The resolution, sponsored in the House by Majority Leader Adam Hasner, reaffirms Florida's commitment to those who fight terrorists around the world.

"I am honored by the overwhelming support of my colleagues in both the House and Senate. Israel has a right to defend herself at a time when it has endured consistent rocket attacks by Hamas. We must stand tall, together, in support of Israel's actions to defend and protect her citizens," said Sen. Deutch.

The vote comes on the heels of the passage of a Congressional resolution calling for an immediate cease fire in Gaza, but also voicing support of the right of Israel to defend itself.
