Senator John Cornyn Speaks Out Against the President’s Policy Change Toward Israel

Reaction has been swift out of Washington, D.C. after President Obama’s speech this morning.

Texas Junior Senator John Cornyn issued the following at 2:10p Central Time.



Senator Reacts to President’s Speech Calling for 1967 Borderlines

WASHINGTON — Following President Obama’s Middle East speech calling for Israeli-Palestinian borders to “be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps,” U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) released the following statement:

“President Obama should not unilaterally decide where the borders of Israel should be.  Unprecedented U.S. pressure on our friend Israel is wrong and could make a negotiated peace with the Palestinians more difficult, as the Administration’s previous diplomatic blunders have demonstrated.

“The President’s renewed demands on Israel also make his words to the rest of the region seem even more empty and hollow.  Lofty rhetoric puts no meaningful pressure on oppressive regimes in Syria, Iran, and elsewhere.  Peaceful protestors need to hear much more clearly that the American people are on their side.”

Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance, Judiciary, Armed Services and Budget Committees.  He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
