Israel Has Helped the U.S. Eliminate Threats on American Soil

(Israel Hayom) Amb. David Friedman interviewed by Ariel Kahana - U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman told Israel Hayom in an interview published Friday: "Israel is a tremendous friend to the United States. It provides the United States with assistance that, in some respects, no other country can provide. Look what it did with Iran, what it discovered with the Iran warehouse. Nobody else was able to accomplish that. There are things that I can't talk about specifically, but things where Israel has identified threats and helped us to eliminate those threats, that would have struck on our own soil. On American soil." "We don't tell Israel what to do and what not to do. It's a sovereign country....I think anything that Israel would present to the United States as being in their interest, in the interest of regional stability, in the interest of peace, of making the relationship between our two countries stronger, we owe it to them to listen. And then I think we would express our views, if we had views, and then the Israelis would have to make a decision. It's Israel's decision. It's always Israel's decision."
