Update on American-Israeli Relations

30Apr10

………………………………..

The Middle East peace process and the state of American-Israeli relations continue to be sources of great debate and discussion in Washington and among the Jewish community.  On Tuesday, April 27, Hadassah representatives participated in a conference call with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs Israel Strategy Committee which included representation from at least three other national member agencies and a dozen Jewish Community Relations Councils.  Participants discussed recent developments in American-Israeli relations and the peace process.

After some tension with Israel last month, U.S. officials met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak during their recent visits to Washington.  To learn more about the meetings read transcripts of Israeli Defense Minister Barak and U.S. Defense Minister Robert Gates’ joint question and answer session with the press.

The Obama administration has responded to concerns from the Jewish community with a letter to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and speeches by prominent administration officials to Jewish organizations, affirming the administration’s support for Israel and the need for peace.   Click here to read Obama advisor David Axelrod’s remarks to the National Jewish Democratic Council on April 22, 2010.

Jewish organizations and the community across the country have welcomed President Obama and his administration’s statements of support and hope that it will ensure a strong U.S.-Israeli bond for years to come.  For more information read “ADL Welcomes President’s Strong Statements Of Support For Israel” on the Anti-Defamation League’s website.
