Last week, President Obama reaffirmed his steadfast commitment to Israel while speaking to Floridians at Century Village in West Palm Beach, Florida. During his speech, President Obama stated, “Under my administration, we haven’t just preserved the unbreakable bond with Israel; we have strengthened it.”
President Obama expanded on the United States’ unwavering commitment to the State of Israel and the U.S.-Israel relationship:
“We’ve stood by Israel’s side in the face of criticism. Our military and intelligence cooperation has never been closer. And obviously this is a moment of great uncertainty in the Middle East given what’s happening in Syria and what’s happening in other places. So now is the time to make sure that we are doing everything we can to protect Israel’s security. And I want you to know that that’s something that should transcend party. That’s not a Republican or a Democratic issue. That is an issue of how we work with one of our closest allies in the world that shares our values and believes in democracy.”
