Discussing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address before Congress on Tuesday, March 3, Congressman Lamar Smith said, "Israel is our strongest democratic ally in the Middle East. For decades, our nations have stood side by side against great evil in the world. Now, in the face of the Islamic State and increasing terrorism sponsored by states such as Iran, we must continue to stand together as strong allies. A nuclear Iran is an unacceptable risk to American and Israeli security and world peace." Smith also met with Texas members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee who had traveled to Washington, DC to attend the national chapter's annual conference.
