U.S. President speaks before Union for Reform Judaism conference, stressed that U.S. support for ‘Israel’ is ‘unshakeable’ and asserts ‘’My administration has done more than any other to support Israel’’
U.S. President Barack Obama gave the keynote address at the Union for Reform Judaism conference in Maryland on Friday, and said that his administration has done more than any other to support Israel.
“It’s hard to remember a time when the administration gave more support to the security of Israel, don’t let anyone to tell you otherwise, it’s a fact,” Obama said, who received a standing ovation and enthusiastic applause from the thousands of attendees at the conference.
Obama has come under persistent attack from Republicans heading into the 2012 election who say he hasn’t done enough for Israel.
However in Friday’s speech, Obama stressed the U.S. commitment to Israel and its security.
“We stand with Israel as a Jewish and democratic state,” he urged. “America’s commitment and my commitment to security of Israel is unshakeable.”
