Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., said the U.S. must not tolerate any Iranian aggression against Israel.

Scott made his comments in a column posted on the Fox News website on Friday.

"Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and our only hope for stability in the region," he said. "Israelis value human rights, support free markets and have a strong and capable military of men and women who love their country.

"While Israel has a host of enemies, Iran continues to prop up the terrorist groups that surround Israel — and Iran wants Israel completely eradicated."

He claimed Iran's attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities demonstrates its "unwillingness to be a fair and honest player on the world’s stage."

Scott maintained Iranians will not stop unless they are made to stop.

"The Iranians mean to humble us, drive us from the region, isolate Israel, and establish a new order in the Middle East," he said. "That is an affront to U.S. national security and worldwide economic stability."

Scott said the U.S. must protect "our military assets and our men and women in uniform in the region, as well as the security of our allies, especially Israel."

"In fact, the president needs to be crystal clear on the repercussions if Iran continues making threats and taking provocative action," he said.
