Florida Governor Speaks Out on Middle East

The governor says Israel has a right to a secure border and to take steps to eliminate threats to Israeli citizens.

“The only country in the region that has actually made unilateral efforts to try to find a peaceful solution is Israel, but they haven't had a willing partner and that's the next step," says Jeb Bush. "Hopefully, a strengthened government of Lebanon and the U.S. can play a role there and some commitment by the Palestinians to respect the borders that can potentially be created and the ones that are already there would be the next step.”

The U.S. has pledged $30 million in humanitarian aid to help Lebanese civilians caught in the crossfire.
