"AIPAC commends the U.S. decision to veto an anti-Israel resolution offered by Qatar at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council. The decision affirms unequivocal U.S. support for Israel's right to defend itself against unprovoked acts of aggression by Hamas and Hizballah. The Administration remained steadfast in its principle to veto resolutions that focus criticism on Israel, rather than condemning the terrorist groups that continue to attack its citizens.
"AIPAC applauds the leadership of President Bush, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton and those congressional leaders who continue to stand strong in support of our close ally and friend."
