President Barack Obama remains morally and strategically” committed to Israel, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference in Washington Monday.
“Obama has acted swiftly and decisively to make clear that our deep commitment to Israel has not changed,” he said, citing America’s shared interests with Israel that Iran will not be able to produce a nuclear weapons and that Syria will not be able to threaten Israel with chemical weapons.
He also made a cryptic comment on the President Obama’s upcoming visit to Israel. “I am jealous that he is the one who will say, “This year in Jerusalem.” The United States does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
God bless you all and may God bless our troops,” Biden concluded
