John Neely Kennedy on Foreign Policy

Democratic Senate Challenger (LA)


Support Israel, our only true friend in the Middle East

As your representative in the United States Senate I will vote to support Israel. Israel is our only true friend in the Middle East. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. We must maintain Israel's military superiority, both for the sake of Israel and for the sake of America.

$5M in Israel bonds is a win-win for Israel and Louisiana

For the first time in the state's history, the Louisiana Treasury has purchased $5 million in Israel bonds to diversify investments and develop economic ties between the State of Louisiana & the State of Israel. "This is a win-win situation for Louisiana and Israel," said Treasurer Kennedy. "Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. It is America's only true friend in the Middle East, and it is one of our staunchest allies. I am pleased that we could take this first step in forging a meaningful, economic relationship between Israel and Louisiana."

Act 654 of the 2004 Legislative Session enables investing up to 5% of some portfolios in bonds from other countries. The state's $5 million investment in Israel bonds is the first step in this process. Said Kennedy, "Purchasing these bonds helps Israel obtain much-needed funding to move forward with growth and development projects. This investment also benefits Louisiana because it is a secure way of diversifying our trust fund portfolios."
