“If you vote to send billions of dollars to jihadists who have pledged to murder Americans, then you bear direct responsibility for the murders carried out with the dollars you have given them. You cannot wash your hands of that blood.”
— Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Senator Ted Cruz seems to be the only sane person operating out of Washington, D.C. This past week he spoke out against the horrible Iran Deal, imploring Democrats to rethink their support of the truly dangerous plan.
“There is no greater threat to the safety and security of America. There is no greater threat to the safety and security of Israel.
It is my hope and prayer that every one of those Senate Democrats reconsiders, that they go home and they fall to their knees and they pray tonight. I agree with former Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman, that this vote is quite likely the most important vote that any member of Congress; any member of the Senate will cast in their entire career.
Americans will die, Israelis will die, Europeans will die. Osama bin Laden never had $100 billion. He was filled with bilious hatred, and using rudimentary tools, murdered nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001. We’re now talking about giving the Ayatollah Khamenei, a theocratic homicidal maniac, who hates America every bit as much as bin Laden did, giving him $100 billion to carry out his murderous plan.”
Then this past Sunday in honor and observance of Rosh Hashanah, he articulated the importance of ensuring that our bond with Israel be as strong as ever.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement in observance of Rosh Hashanah:
“Shanah Tovah. Happy new year to our Jewish brothers and sisters observing Rosh Hashanah. I wish you a time of meaningful prayer, reflection, and celebration.
“The Talmud cites two reasons to sound the Shofar (ram’s horn) on Rosh Hashanah. One is to accept God’s dominion as King. The other is to recall the weeping of Sisera’s mother, who wept for her son who went missing in battle. It is these two qualities of the Jewish people – religious faith and generous humanity – which have made such a tremendous impact on our civilization.
“I pray that the coming year – 5776 – will be one of peace, prosperity and abundant blessing for the Jewish people and for the nation of Israel. Now more than ever we must further strengthen our unshakable bond to confront the many challenges that threaten our future and our survival.”
