Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and its Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations, released the following statement Tuesday:

“Both Israel and Saudi Arabia, important allies of the United States in the Middle East, have asked President Obama to remain neutral in the ongoing conflict in Egypt.

“Obama’s decision to cut off support to the Egyptian military trying to preserve order is not in the best interests of the region.

“Not only does it provide relief to the Muslim Brotherhood, it poses a threat to the security of Israel, Saudi Arabia and other allies in the region.”
