Ted Cruz, United States Senator from Texas understands that nothing can replace freedom and human rights. The story of his father fleeing Cuba is powerful, and provides a cogent rationale for Cruz’s strong support of Israel. Someone who has seen, personally, what can happen in a police regime, will be the strongest supporter of countries which defend human rights and freedoms.
With a deep resolve that evolved somewhere between Cuba and Texas, Cruz has proven to be a staunch friend of Israel.
This is a time when Israel needs friends like Ted Cruz. And Cruz needs the support of those who share his values and beliefs. As Alan Dershowitz states as he introduces Cruz at the Zionist Organization of America Gala, “We must all stand together”.
