US lawmakers have announced the creation of a group to promote US interests as newly restored US-Cuba relations evolve. Twelve lawmakers from both parties did so in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. The Cuba Working Group in the House of Representatives is to be formally created on December 17, 2015. It will push to "advance policy proposals that are in our national interest in an era in which the US-Cuba relationship is rapidly being reshaped," the letter said. Thursday marks the one year anniversary of the announcement by the US and Cuba that they would restore ties severed during the Cold War.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer spoke on Sunday at the closing plenary of the Israeli American Council (IAC) National Conference in Miami, where Israeli-American businessman and philanthropist Haim Saban asked Pelosi about her views on the two state solution,

“I’ve said [to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu]: If it’s not a solution than two-state doesn’t mean anything. Focus on the word solution. We have to make it really clear to the Palestinians that we expect them to be responsible negotiators and we haven’t seen a lot of that thus far,” said Pelosi.

“I believe the establishment of the state of Israel was the greatest political accomplishment of the 20th century,” continued Pelosi, who described Israel as “a beacon of hope and values and we cannot in way have that diminished because Israel is not just a country” but also shares ideals and values with the United States and is a close friend.

Haim Saban noted that the connection between Israel and the United States is mutual. “The United States not only helps Israel but Israel helps the United States, and I am proud to say that as an Israeli-American.”

Schumer agreed with Saban’s statement and noted the shared intelligence, keeping an eye on terrorists, and the military cooperation between the countries. “No other country does more to protect American from terrorism than Israel and that’s a point that must be made known,” he stressed.

  1. Nancy and Chuck are good at lip service, but followed President Hussein in all of his maniacal support of Muslim Brotherhood and Persian Mullahs. The contemporary DRat party is a party of supporting genocide.
