Throughout our history, the United States and Israel have developed a mutual friendship that every presidential administration has affirmed. Israel shares the same values for a free and democratic society that we as Americans hold so dear. Let us work together with Israel to protect our mutually shared way of life. Let us hold to those promises that we have already made to Israel and look for new ways of strengthening our alliance.
Israel and the United States share a set of cultural values which are based in their religious heritage. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of Joseph and David, is also the God we trust. The founders of the United States placed their faith in God when they founded this nation. It is our shared belief that each individual has a God-given right to the life, liberty, happiness, and justice that binds our relationship.
