Israel is the sole democracy in the Middle East. Not only is Israel American’s only ally in the entire Middle East region, they are on the front line of defending freedom in the world against the war raged by radical Islam. Every home-grown terror attack in the United States is descended from a similar attack in Israel where the government works 24/7 to defend its people against those sworn to destroy the Jewish state.
The U.S.-Israel relationship is built on an unshakable commitment to shared values and interests. America and Israel are sister democracies dedicated to the rule of law, human rights, and freedoms of speech and religion.
The United States has a long-standing policy which declares that Israel’s survival and security are important to its own national interests. The cooperation and close alliance between the U.S. and Israel must be protected and encouraged.
As part of the strategic partnership, America provides Israel with security assistance so that it can defend itself against perpetual security threats. In turn, Israel works with the U.S. government by sharing technologies and techniques that greatly benefit both nations in the realms of defense technology, homeland security, counter-terrorism and cybersecurity.
America and Israel learn from each other and grow stronger by fighting in unity against the violent Islamic threat that continues to threaten freedom and democracy.
