U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) spoke on Thursday at an event in Washington, DC, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the unity of Jerusalem in the Six Day War.
The event was attended by 29 Senators and Congressmen who stressed the importance of Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel.
Barrasso called on the United States to end its funding to the UN in light of its ongoing anti-Israel bias.
“While the Republicans and Democrats might fight about a lot of things, what we are 100% united on is reining in the United Nations and the abuses that we have seen there,” he said.
“100 of us signed a letter to the Secretary-General, saying that this must stop. This will stop. The U.S. is funding this. We as a Senate say: ‘It is time to get rid of what you are doing at the United Nations [against Israel].’”
Barrasso promised the people of Israel, “We stand singly with you. We’ll continue to do that in every way, and that’s not a Republican position, that’s not a Democrat position. It’s an American position.”
