Dear Chong,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. I appreciate hearing from you.

The situation in the Middle East is extremely difficult. I am a great supporter of Israel. As the only stable and fully functioning democracy in the region and our ally, it deserves our support. Middle Eastern countries should look to the Israeli government as a model to bolster their own democratic institutions and improve their economic standing. Democracy in the Middle East is a vital component of peace in the Middle East.

Additionally, I support the efforts toward a safe and secure Israel living alongside a sovereign Palestinian state. However, there is no doubt that in order for this to happen, Israel must have a willing partner that recognizes Israel’s right to exist and is prepared to make compromises. Until that day comes, I will support efforts to bring peace and security to the people in the Middle East.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts. It is important for me to hear the views and concerns of the people I serve. Since takin g office, I have received over 5 00,000 pieces of cor respondence and have had over 20 0,000 people participate in live forums and telephone town hall meetings. Please feel free to contact me in the future if I can further assist you or your family. It is an honor representing you and the good people of Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.


Ron Johnson
