Support of Israel
George Santos strongly supports Israel as a critical ally and partner of the United States, and New York. George enthusiastically supports President Trump’s formal recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel. He believes Iran is the most serious threat to peace and security in the Middle East and must NEVER be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon. George also opposes the BDS Movement, supported by many on the left, and calls it out as an anti-Semitic campaign with the goal of eliminating the Jewish state. As a member of Congress, George pledges to support continued military assistance to Israel and ensure that the 10-year, $38 billion agreement signed in 2016 between our two nations is upheld.
