Fort Lauderdale - With victory in the congressional elections less than a day old, Florida Senator Marco Rubio (Rep.) who considers himself a ‘Tea Party’ member, is set to arrive in Israel on Sunday. Rubio’s visit so soon after the election win is a move that strengthens assessments that the congress in its current form will continue where it left off – at least where Israel is concerned.

The pro-Israeli AIPAC lobby applauded the election results, congratulated the winners and said: “It is abundantly clear that the 112th Congress will continue America’s long tradition of staunch support for a strong, safe and secure Israel and an abiding friendship between the United States and our most reliable ally in the Middle East.”

AIPAC expressed satisfaction over the fact that most pro-Israel senators were reelected and sent messages of congratulations to senators and congress members from both parties.

Although he has good intentions, I don't think that rushing so quickly is healthy.
Let him get sworn in and find his way and go after he developed some healthy relationships with a real agenda.
Then he would be able to go with some constituents and other politicians to!
Anyway, hope he has a safe trip and easy on the falafel balls.

How comforable would you feel if a newly elected Senator would visit Lebenon on his first week after winning? There is nothing wrong but it doesn't smell right.

If I were an Arab or a muslim, it would make me very unconfortable. Shelo asani goy so Senator-Elect Rubio's visit to E"Y doesn't bother me in the least. Since the election is over, I can't imagine any reason for this trip than genuine sincerity. Marco is the real deal: you may not agree with him but at least he says what he means and means what he says

let him go and see the facts as to who is the "victim" and who us the "aggressor".
then he can relay the "correct version" of who s/b helped to all his colleagues and BHO

I am a resident of Aventura, Florida and I proudly voted for Marco Rubio yesterday .His victory should be celebrated in the Jewish community. He is a good friend of Israel and will be a fighter against Islamic terror . May Hashem bless him with many years of health & success. Marco is a rising star that very well may be a future president of our beloved United States of America. Mazl tov Marco Rubio!

While he was a law student Marco interned for Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen who will now become the Chair of the House Foreign Relations Committee. Ileana is pro Israel and is a close friend of the Jewish community with good friends in the frum community. I know that Marco will emulate what he saw and lerned in Ileana's office.
Good luck Marco. I wish you the best of luck. Brocho V'Hatzlocho.
