Proposed U.S. Bill Would Solidify the Truth About Israel

thanks to Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.)a new bill in Congress aims to stress the sanctity and ancient Jewish history of the Holy Land. Tenney introduced the “Recognizing Judea and Samaria Act” on Feb. 29. The legislation would require all official U.S. documents and materials to reference “Judea and Samaria” rather than the “West Bank.”

“The Israeli people have an undeniable and indisputable historical and legal claim over Judea and Samaria, and at this critical moment in history, the United States must reaffirm this,” Tenney stated.

Tenney’s bill is co-sponsored by Reps. Randy Weber (R-Texas) and Anthony D’Esposito (R-N.Y.), said that the Biden administration was “misguided” to revoke Pompeo Doctrine,” a decision which “undermines our greatest ally in the Middle East.” (That doctrine arose from an announcement in November 2019 by then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Washington supports Israeli settlements in the West Bank, Golan Heights and East Jerusalem as legal.)

“This bill reaffirms Israel’s rightful claim to its territory. I remain committed to defending the integrity of the Jewish state and fully supporting Israel’s sovereignty over Judea and Samaria,” Tenney stated.

Thank you, Rep. Claudia Tenney and your colleagues Reps. Weber and Esposito. Well said. Enough said. The truth about Judea and Samaria must be made clear to the entire world and your initiative on this matter is deeply appreciated by many. We are grateful for your work on this bill and for your friendship to Israel and the Jewish people.
