Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) released the following statement with regard to the President’s speech on Middle East policy:

“The President had a worthwhile focus on human rights and the need for a transition to Middle Eastern democracy.  I had hoped his human rights policy would have had teeth by directly calling on Syrian dictator Assad to step down.

“The President’s new decision to alter U.S. policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process concerns me.  Palestinian calls for ‘1967 borders’ should be outweighed by Israel’s need for secure borders to ensure the survival of a critical U.S. ally.  The President should block U.S. taxpayer assistance to Palestinian leaders who teamed up with a group his Administration certified as a terrorist organization – Hamas – responsible for the murder of at least 26 American citizens.  America has no greater ally and political supporter than the Israeli democracy.”
