John McCain leads bipartisan delegation to meet with President Reuven Rivlin

Leading a bipartisan delegation of United States Senators who are touring the Middle East, Senator John McCain, the Chairperson  of the Senate Armed Services Committee met on Sunday evening with President Reuven Rivlin.  McCain was the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. In March last year McCain called on the US Senate to pass new bipartisan sanctions against Iran saying that America must keep the pressure on so that Iran realizes that unless it compromises, even more crippling sanctions will be in store.

McCain, who is known to be a great friend of Israel’s and one who will do everything in his power to prevent another Holocaust, has visited Israel on numerous occasions, the first time close to 35 years ago, when he was still a captain in the US Navy.
