Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3457, Justice For Victims Of Iranian Terrorism Act; Providing For Consideration Of Conference Report On H.R. 1735, National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal… October 1, 2015
Bradley Byrne, R-AL
"A lot has been said on this floor recently about the threat and dangers posed to the United States and our allies by the Islamic Republic of Iran. I don’t want to rehash that debate, but I do think it is important to remember that Iran is the top state sponsor of terrorism on the globe."
Justice For Victims Of Iranian Terrorism Act October 1, 2015
Michael Fitzpatrick, R-PA
"What we are going to do is we are going to give the money to the Islamic Republic of Iran and not to American victims, and that is wrong. This bill is right. I urge my colleagues to support it."
Military Construction, The Department Of Veterans Affairs, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed—Continued October 1, 2015
Tom Cotton, R-AR
"So what should we do now? Again, I think it is very simple. Let me lay it out. We should make it clear that Vladimir Putin and Russia will not be a power in the Middle East. We should pressure our partners to do the same thing. We should establish no-fly zones in Syria and make it clear that any aircraft that enters those zones will be shot down. We should make it clear that we will fly where we want and when we want, that any aircraft in Syria—or, for that matter, in the vicinity of a NATO country—that turns on the transponder will be shot down as a menace to civil aviation and to our allies. We should ramp up our airstrikes in Syria against our enemies such as the Islamic State. We should threaten Iran with termination of the nuclear deal because they are continuing to provide support for Bashar al-Assad. We should make it clear that Israel retains the right to interdict missile shipments from Iran through Syria to the terrorist group Hezbollah."
2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development October 1, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"The Syrians are the largest group. They are fleeing a deadly combination of their own government’s indiscriminate barrel bomb attacks on crowded markets, schools, and clinics; suffocating sieges; and atrocities committed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS and other extremist groups. We know that only a minority of migrants arriving in Europe are motivated solely by economic betterment."
Justice For Victims Of Iranian Terrorism Act September 30, 2015
Jeffrey Denham, R-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 3457, the Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act. Iran currently owes $43.5 billion to victims of state-sponsored terrorism. Hundreds of Americans have personally felt the impact of Iranian terrorism. In the last 30 years, Americans studying abroad, teaching or traveling through the Middle East have been taken hostage, killed in suicide bombings and gunned down by members of the Islamic jihad."
