Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham said on Wednesday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “understood” Senator John McCain’s commitment to Israel, and peace.

McCain died August 25 after a year-long struggle with an aggressive form of brain cancer.


“I received a call this morning from the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu,” Graham wrote in a tweet.

“I appreciate the Prime Minister for calling today to express his condolences on the passing of Senator John McCain.

“The Prime Minister – and all of Israel – understood John McCain’s devotion to the U.S.-Israel relationship and John’s commitment to a real Peace,” he continued.

Graham went on to say that he enjoyed working with McCain to strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship.

“This work will never stop and my commitment to Peace through Strength remains steadfast,” he wrote.

Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, has been a strong friend of Israel, and a member of the U.S. Senate since 2003.
