The Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), the largest organization of Orthodox rabbis in the world, expresses its gratitude to President Barack Obama for his strong reaffirmation of America's unwavering support for Israel. His statement that "there is no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. So we are fully supportive of Israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes"proves that Israel is not alone when it must make the difficult choice to engage in defensive military action.
We are proud to be citizens of a country whose moral voice is heard loud and clear, and whose president understands that terror against the citizens of Israel cannot be ignored.
Rabbi Shmuel Goldin, president of the RCA, stated, "We applaud our president and the United States government for their continued support of the State of Israel, its one true and constant ally in the Middle East."
