Sen. Menendez Endorses Clinton : "...Has the Right Stuff for Prez"




Just look at Israel Ė an American ally whose security is far too important to gamble with, especially when it finds itself under siege.

This March, a 28-year-old West Point graduate named Taylor Force went on a school trip to Israelís Jaffa port, where he was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist. And tragically, at a time when Israel has experienced frequent terrorist stabbings, shootings, and vehicular attacks, Taylor is only one of many victims who have been injured or murdered.

Under the constant threat of such brutal terroróin addition to Iranís continued aggression, rising extremism throughout the Middle East, and a global effort to delegitimize Israelóthe presence of a strong and experienced American president will be more critical than ever.

As someone who has worked closely with Hillary, Iíve seen her commitment to defending Israelís national security interests first-hand. When she served in the Senate, she advocated for peace in the region, and co-sponsored bills aimed at thwarting Palestinian terrorism. As Secretary of State, she devised and fought to maintain sanctions that crippled Iranís economy, and she negotiated a ceasefire between Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian leaders at a critical moment in Gaza after increasing violence and rocket attacks on Israeli homes.

Hillary also believes that no matter how hard it may be, establishing a two-state solution is essential to Israelís long term security. As the last American official to convene face-to-face peace talks between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas, she knows how hard this will be but is especially equipped to get this done. And as President, she will continue working toward the goal of providing Israelis with a secure homeland for the Jewish people and allowing Palestinians to peacefully govern themselves in their own state.
