Israel Stands with America

(Prime Minister's Office) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - In honor of American Independence Day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told U.S. Ambassador Daniel Shapiro: I want to reaffirm again that our greatest alliance, our most basic alliance is with the United States of America. When Americans look at Israel, they see themselves, and when Israelis look at America, they too see themselves. We also share the same enemies. The values we hold most dear are anathema to terrorist groups like ISIS, Hizbullah, Hamas, and regimes like Iran. I'm deeply grateful for the political and military support America has given Israel over the years. But I'm even more grateful for what America is: the land of the free, the home of the brave; a nation which, to paraphrase Lincoln, has so often been the best last hope of humanity. America has made this world a much better place. It has provided more opportunity for more people than any other country in the history of the world. Tonight I join you in celebrating America. I admire your history; I treasure your friendship; I cherish our alliance. When America is denigrated by some abroad, Israel stands with America, shoulder to shoulder, through thick and thin. We are here for you as you are here for us. Thank you and Happy Fourth of July. God bless America.
