Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the following statement applauding the administration for strongly condemning an anti-Israel report released this week by the U.N.’s Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia:

“This so-called report is nothing more than anti-Israel propaganda, and should be retracted.  It outrageously endorses calls to broaden the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.  These types of dangerous, one-sided attacks on Israel only put prospects for peace in the region further out of reach.  I applaud Ambassador Nikki Haley and the administration for making clear the United States will not tolerate these biased anti-Israel acts.”
