New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is considering a bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, criticized US President Barack Obama’s dealings with Israel while speaking at an event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire Monday stating the current administration’s approach towards the Jewish State has been shameful.
"Our commitment to Israel must be absolute. Israel is a beacon of freedom in a sea of autocracy and our friendship should be unshakeable. Over the last few years this administration has taken our Israeli partners for granted and it is shameful how the president has treated them."
Christie added that "Israel and its people must be supported by the United States and the American president – its existence and its security is non-negotiable, and the Iranians and others who think otherwise must be reminded by America of that simple fact."
