On June 14, Congressman Joe Wilson issued the following statement:

'A highlight of my service in Congress was when my wife Roxanne and I met with Prime Minister Netanyahu in Jerusalem and in Washington. As Co-Chair of the Israel Caucus, I know firsthand of his extraordinary dedication to the people of Israel.

'President of American Jewish Congress Jack Rosen wrote, 'we also want to thank outgoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his long-time service and leadership. Mr. Netanyahu has greatly contributed to Israel's progress, especially in strengthening the country's security, transforming it into an economic powerhouse, and advancing its standing in the international arena. Under Prime Minister Netanyahu's watch, Israel underwent an extraordinary rapprochement with the Arab world, as attested to by the historic normalization agreements achieved with several Arab countries. We wish him well,' in a heartfelt statement on the service of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

'I agree with Mr. Rosen when he says, 'we look forward to engaging with the new Israeli government to help take American-Israeli relations to new heights, to addressing critical regional challenges together, and to achieving sustainable peace and prosperity for all.''
