WASHINGTON, DC- The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) hailed President Barack Obama’s strong statement of support for Israel during his State of the Union address. NJDC Chair Marc R. Stanley said:

“President Obama’s strong words in support of Israel tonight reflect his unyielding commitment to the safety and security of the Jewish state. From his leadership on the Iron Dome missile defense system and his vocal support for Israel’s right to defend itself to his commitment to achieving peace, the President has been Israel’s most important ally. We appreciate that the President reaffirmed his commitment to preventing a nuclear-armed Iran tonight, and that he continued to make clear that he stands with Israel as its neighbors experience instability and violence. We commend the President for his leadership in strengthening the U.S.-Israel partnership and making our special relationship a top priority of his foreign policy agenda. Because of his exceptionally strong support for Israel, we are eagerly anticipating his upcoming trip to the Jewish state.”
