Peres Thumps the Bible for Obama

President Shimon Peres put an emphasis on the Bible and its importance to the United States as well as Israel in his welcoming speech to President Barack Obama at Ben Gurion Airport shortly after noon Israeli time Wednesday.

“In a few minutes, you will be on your way to Jerusalem. Our ancient capital. The cradle of all believers, of all prayers,” President Peres said. “You will see the hills and mountains where our prophets preached. Where the soul of the Jewish People was born. Where the State of Israel was created.

“America and Israel are somewhat different in size. In size, not in destiny. The American dream stems from the Bible….

“America stood by our side from the very beginning. You supported us as we rebuilt our ancient homeland. As we defended our land. From Holocaust to redemption. From Truman to Obama.

Mr. President, Wherever you go in our land, you will meet the friendship and warmth of the people of Israel. The people of Israel want you to feel at home. Welcome home Mr. President.”
