Ted Cruz Defends Israel from John Kerry’s Awful Comments

Senator Ted Cruz spoke with Tony Perkins about Secretary of State John Kerry’s horrible comment that Israel was akin to an “apartheid” state. He reiterated his call for Kerry to resign his post over the comments and reminded us all that this is not the first time Kerry has made disparaging and unfair remarks about one of our closest allies.

Here were Senator Cruz’s comments from the other day as he marked Holocaust Remembrance Day and honored those who lost their lives during that terrible time.

Today marks the 61st anniversary of the Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel—the day on which the world’s only Jewish state pauses in memory of those murdered in the most savage episode of genocide in modern history. The day falls between the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the anniversary of the founding of Israel and, as such, both recalls the great struggle for survival of 20th century Jews, and the great event that came out of that struggle, namely the establishment of the state of Israel.

kerryIt is therefore fitting that we join in solidarity with Israel to remember the mothers and fathers, the brothers and sisters, the husbands and wives, the sons and daughters who perished in the Holocaust, and to celebrate the courage of those who resolved that the Nazis—like all those who attempted to annihilate the Jews in the past—would fail.

It is the great good fortune of the United States that Israel was established and has flourished beyond the wildest expectations to become a beacon in the Middle East of the limitless potential of a free society. As a Texan, I am particularly encouraged by our close relationship in the energy sector, which will shortly enable Israel to become an energy exporter to neighbors like Egypt and Jordan.

Israel has also become a key security partner for America in the region assisting us with everything from counter-terrorism efforts to research and development on programs such as Iron Dome and Iron Beam—and most importantly standing firmly by our side to counter the looming threat of a nuclear Iran.

On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, our best way to affirm our commitment to “never again” is to present a united front with our close friend and ally Israel, and to express our vigorous support for the Jewish state and for Jews worldwide by focusing on our clear national security interest—which is continuing to guarantee Israel’s security through our unquestionable commitment to our friendship.

Senator Cruz continues to be the friend to Israel that the Obama administration has never been. The world will be a safer and more sane place when the Obama administration comes to an end and is replaced by a common sense conservative like Ted Cruz.

    Almost half of Israeli’s – that would be called a minority.

    As for “the rest of the planet”, you have NOTHING to back up that claim! You must be part of the Obama & Killary show.

      The USA. is the only country that “usually” backs” the pariah Right Wing state of Israel. Please name another country who side with Israel if you can?

    Ezekiel 11:17-20 refers to the beginning of the reign of Christ called the millennium for 1,000 years. During the Tribulation, millions of Jews will believe in Jesus Christ as their savior and Messiah. Those who survive (Jews and gentiles) the seven years of tribulation will go into the millennium and the Jews will receive the covenants promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David that have not been fulfilled. God does not go back on His promises. They are God’s chosen people regardless of who or what THEY are because Christ is the issue; not them. However, when a Jew becomes a Christian, they are children of God and race is not an issue.
    Gal 3:26-28 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek (gentiles), there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
