In Advance of May 14 Anniversary, Miss. Senator Also Cosponsors Senate Resolution Affirming U.S.-Israel Partnership

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued a statement in advance of Sunday’s celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel.

Hyde-Smith also cosponsored a bipartisan Senate Resolution commemorating the May 14, 1948 founding of the sovereign and independent State of Israel.

“I wish Israel a very happy 75th birthday!  A strong U.S.-Israel relationship is critical to both of our nations’ security, and I will continue to stand with Israel, as Israel stands with us,” Hyde-Smith said.  “I look forward to many more years of friendship, and wish the Jewish state a blessed and very happy Independence Day.”

Hyde-Smith is among 37 cosponsors of S.Res.188 which recounts the historic founding of Israel and its close and steadfast ties to the United States.  Among other things, the Senate resolution reaffirms:

  • The longstanding and indelible partnership between the United States and Israel;
  • The unshakeable commitment of the United States to the security of the State of Israel; and
  • The right of Israel to exist in peace, prosperity, and security alongside its neighbors.
