Text: U.S.-Israel Strategic Partnership Joint Declaration

(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) The leaders of the U.S. and Israel adopted the following joint declaration in Jerusalem on July 14, 2022: "Consistent with the...unshakeable U.S. commitment to Israel's security, and especially to the maintenance of its qualitative military edge, the United States reiterates its steadfast commitment to preserve and strengthen Israel's capability to deter its enemies and to defend itself by itself against any threat or combination of threats." "The United States further reiterates that these commitments are bipartisan and sacrosanct, and that they are not only moral commitments, but also strategic commitments that are vitally important to the national security of the United States itself." "The United States stresses that integral to this pledge is the commitment never to allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon, and that it is prepared to use all elements of its national power to ensure that outcome." "The United States further affirms the commitment to work together with other partners to confront Iran's aggression and destabilizing activities, whether advanced directly or through proxies and terrorist organizations such as Hizbullah, Hamas, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad." "The United States and Israel...firmly reject the BDS campaign." "The two countries will use the tools at their disposal to fight every scourge and source of anti-Semitism and to respond whenever legitimate criticism crosses over into bigotry and hatred or attempts to undermine Israel's rightful and legitimate place among the family of nations."
