Support for Israel

Loyalty to Friends and Allies - Respect and Reciprocity

"Israel was not created in order to disappear ― Israel will endure and flourish.

Israel is the child of hope and home of the brave.

Israel carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom."

John F. Kennedy, U.S. President, 1961-1963
