Being progressive and being pro-Israel are not mutually exclusive, but compatible, Congressman Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) said at an event Tuesday.

Deutch, the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, discussed the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship and potential solutions for the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Deutch has frequently travelled to Israel and met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and members of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament.

The event, cohosted by the Georgetown Israel Alliance, Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service and Georgetown University College Democrats, included a conversation with Deutch moderated by President of GIA Ben Goodman (SFS ’20), who is also a Hoya Staff Writer.
