Charleston, SC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the statement below following U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech regarding Israel and the Middle East.
“The ‘path to peace’ laid out by Secretary Kerry would actually bring the exact opposite – it is a path to pain. This whole charade is putting Israel at a huge disadvantage in peace negotiations, and needlessly tests our nation’s relationship with a critical ally in a volatile part of the world. With three weeks left in this administration, it is absolutely ridiculous that they would choose to continue antagonizing Israel.
I strongly believe that next month we will make it clear to the world that the United States stands with Israel, and that our decades-long friendship is solid.”
Senator Scott was sworn in to the U.S. Senate in January 2013. He has launched his Opportunity Agenda, a new way forward including robust initiatives that give our students and workers the greatest chance to succeed. Tim knows that success is created in studio apartments and garages, at kitchen tables, and in classrooms across the nation - not in government conference rooms in Washington.
His agenda will empower Americans through economic freedom and high-quality education. Senator Scott will work with anyone else committed to building a better future to develop bold ideas that break away from our past failures. This includes tax reform to increase economic freedom, expanding school choice so every child has a chance at a quality education, and providing alternatives for single parents to work their 40 hours a week by allowing for wider use of comp time.
