60 lawmakers co-sponsor Haiti-Israel resolution


April 21, 2010 | 11:36 am

A congressional resolution congratulating Israel for its Haiti rescue efforts has 60 co-sponsors from both parties.

The resolution, initiated by U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), “commends and honors the efforts and generosity of the Israelis who worked on the ground in Haiti, the State of Israel, the Israel Defense Forces, and the Israeli people for their outstanding contributions to earthquake relief in Haiti.”

The resolution has yet to be formally introduced. A letter from Johnson and Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) seeking more co-sponsors is still circulating.

The non-binding resolution is supported by J Street, a liberal pro-Israel group, and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
