Resolution on Six Day War reaffirms Florida Senate’s support for Israel

In a move to mark the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, which occurred during the Six Day War, the Florida Senate recently passed a resolution to recognize the historical event and reaffirm its support for Israel.

The resolution calls the war “a transformative event in the history of Israel and the Jewish people,” and takes note that when Jerusalem was under divided rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and access to them was denied, but since the war “Israel has respected the right of all peoples to visit its holy sites, subject to security requirements …”

The resolution notes that the two nations have a relationship “based not only on shared interests, but also on deeply held shared values.”
