Rivlin: Support for Israel must not become issue in US presidential election

Support for Israel has never been and must not become a political party issue. It is bi-partisan, President Reuven Rivlin told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on Thursday.

The bonds between the two countries are based on values of democracy, freedom, liberty and equality, he said, and emphasized that during the current election season, when candidates and campaigns try to win points and votes, it was his deep hope that the close relationship between Israel and the United States will remain beyond debate.

Rivlin was introduced by Conference of Presidents chairman Stephen Greenberg, who described him as “a clear voice for unity among the entire population.”
