AAF on Jack Lew’s Nomination as Ambassador for Israel

October 17th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom issued the following statement on Jack Lew’s nomination to be the U.S. Ambassador to Israel.

“In Israel’s moment of crisis, the United States needs a nominee with a track record of standing with Israel and supporting our ally,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “Instead, Jack Lew has a history of helping Iran evade sanctions and for defending the Obama administration’s decision not to veto a 2016 UN Security council resolution condemning Israeli settlements. The United States must be a united front against Hamas and Iran and send a clear message that there will be no softness or slack when dealing with these hostile powers.”
