Obama: Israel relations strong despite speech response
President Obama says that despite the Israeli prime minister's less-than-warm response to a request to return to previously established border lines, relations between the U.S. and Israel remain strong.
In a speech last week, Obama said that he believes the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the lines drawn up in 1967, not as they currently stand today.
While Netanyahu said that he disagreed with the idea, and said that Israel would not return to previously drawn border lines, the bonds between his country and the U.S. are unbreakable. Obama reaffirmed the United States' support of Israel Sunday as he addressed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Conference. "Israel's existence must not be a subject for debate, and efforts to chip away at Israel's legitimacy will only be met by the unshakable opposition of the United States."
