He currently represents New York’s 2nd Congressional District, including the communities of Huntington, Babylon, Smithtown and Oyster Bay, but will be running in November for the newly constituted 3rd District, which encompasses Great Neck, the seat previously held by Congressman Gary Ackerman.
Israel is a member of the House Leadership, serving as the Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. In March of 2012, he was appointed to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council.
The Middle East and Israel
Congressman Israel is a leader in the House in supporting U.S. assistance for the State of Israel and has been an active voice on behalf of U.S.-Israeli relations. He called for the arrest of Iranian President Ahmadinejad on charges of incitement to genocide, led bi-partisan efforts to strengthen sanctions against Iran, and helped lead the funding of cutting-edge military equipment and technologies to maintain Israel’s qualitative military edge.
