ICYMI: Rubio Reflects on Israel Trip

National Review

Recently, I traveled to Israel to meet with leaders there and stand in solidarity with the Jewish state…. I traveled amid direct threats to Israel’s very existence from the Iranian regime, its terrorist proxies, and even international institutions….

While in Israel, I met with the families of Americans still held hostage in Gaza. The family of Italy Chen, a U.S. citizen who was tragically declared dead in March, simply want to lay their son to rest with dignity. Hamas refuses to release his body.

It makes one thing clear: Israel’s enemies are also our enemies. The Iranian regime and its proxies…seek Israel’s destruction as part of a multi-stage plan to dominate the Middle East and destabilize the West. The Jewish state is on the front lines of this conflict, fighting with many shared American-Israeli lives.

This makes it outrageous that international institutions are targeting Israel. The International Criminal Court is currently mulling arrest warrants for Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and senior Israeli officials over supposed “war crimes”….

The Iranian regime is ultimately to blame for this situation. President Joe Biden must restore President Donald Trump’s crippling sanctions on the Iranian regime…. He must also use every tool at his disposal to support the Iranian people, who are bravely protesting their oppressive overlords.

Last but not least, President Biden must face the fact that his foreign-policy weakness is responsible for our adversaries’ aggression. To deter further aggression against American lives and interests, he must establish a credible threat of military force….
