Senate GOP leader welcomes Netanyahu following Obama's attack on Israel

The contrast could not be more sharp.  Following Barack Obama's disgraceful attacks last week on Israel and his support for Palestinian policies which threaten to destroy Israel, Obama's opponents in the Republican Party have continued their long-time and very strong support for Israel, and most especially for its courageous Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

For example, the Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky had these remarks about Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu: “Israel is of course a great friend and an ally to the United States, and the Prime Minister should be reassured that Israel will not be alone during this time of uncertainty.

“He should return home knowing that at a time when the Middle East is awash in instability, his relationship with the Congress is strong."
