(Worthy News) - Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) expressed support in a possible Senate move to ratify a narrow U.S.-Israel mutual defense treaty in 2020 on Wednesday. He spoke at the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) gala event in Washington.
"I think it will be the biggest advancement in a long time regarding the U.S.-Israel relationship, and I think it will be the biggest deterrent to a big war in a very long time," Graham said.
"My hope is that we can draft a mutual defense agreement that is consistent with Israel's ability to defend herself, consistent with the United States' strategic interest, which is to make sure that our number one ally in the region doesn't go by the wayside," the Senator added. "If we can pull this off, I think it would be one of the most important things we've ever done to solidify this relationship. I think it will have a calming effect on a region that needs some calm."
