O’Malley Cancels Economic Mission to Israel
Governor Martin O’Malley today released the following statement on his decision to reschedule Maryland’s Economic Development Mission to Israel. The Governor and the Maryland Delegation were scheduled to visit Israel, Jordan and Ramallah next week:
After many days of monitoring the situation in the Middle East, I’ve decided to reschedule Maryland’s Economic Development Mission to Israel.
Not wanting to be a distraction from the urgent cause of peace, I look forward to visiting Israel in the months ahead with Maryland business, research and academic leaders.
For now, we join with our Israeli and Palestinian neighbors in praying for a cease-fire and peaceful resolution to the conflict.”
