STATEMENT: Gottheimer, Moskowitz Statement on Ongoing Knesset Negotiations

Mar 08, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressmen Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Jared Moskowitz (FL-23) released the following statement:

Israel remains our most vital ally in the Middle East. It is also its own democracy.

Regardless of our personal views and concerns, Congress should not publicly intervene in ongoing negotiations of a key democratic ally. Doing so, especially in a partisan way, could undermine those negotiations toward a positive outcome.

The Biden Administration has been clear in condemning unilateral actions that dim prospects for peace. We all need to work together — both in a bipartisan manner and with our key ally — to bring calm to the region and work toward peace for Israel and its neighbors.

We will continue to advocate for policies that further Israel’s security, expand the promise of the Abraham Accords and a two-state solution, and counter malign actors that threaten both of our countries’ safety.
