Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak addressed the Union for Reform Judaism’s Biennial convention last night and lauded the closeness of the U.S.-Israel relationship under President Barack Obama. Barak said:
The unshakable bonds between Israel and America and their respective defense establishments under the guiding hand of President Barack Obama are stronger and deeper than ever and we are very thankful and appreciative of that.
He also praised Obama’s work to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran:
As President Obama and other world leaders repeatedly state - ‘Iran must be prevented from gaining nuclear weapons.’ Your President understood and insisted on this issue from day one. America, Israel and world leaders have to stand determined and united in order to face this threat, and not to remove any option off the table.
Barak will also be meeting face-to-face with Obama today before the President addresses the URJ’s conference.
