United States Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a Senate Foreign Relations Committee member, released a statement on Sunday after the Biden administration reinstated a boycott against scientific and technological cooperation with Jews living in Judea and Samaria.

“Joe Biden and Biden administration officials are pathologically obsessed with undermining Israel. Since day one of their administration, they have launched campaigns against our Israeli allies that are granular, whole of government, and done in secret," the Senator stated.

“This new boycott of Israeli Jews is yet another example. The State Department is telling the entire US government not to cooperate with Jews in Judea and Samaria. And, of course, it was sent to Congress in secret and only revealed because reporters found out," he added.

According to Cruz, “The Biden administration defends funding scientific research in Wuhan with the Chinese Communist Party, but they’re discriminating against and banning cooperation with Jews based on where they live."

The Senator concluded: “I will do everything possible to reverse this decision and prohibit such antisemitic discrimination by the US government in the future.”

Earlier Sunday, it was revealed that the US government would stop funding and participating in research, development, and scientific cooperation projects in Judea and Samaria.

The decision to cancel the Trump Administration's policy change was made at the US State Department two years ago, but it was only recently necessary to act upon the policy in practice because of a request submitted to one of the funds for a grant for a scientific project by researchers from Ariel University, which is beyond the so-called 'Green Line.'
