The National Jewish Democratic Council on Thursday said it was "ecstatic" over Obama's decision to nominate US Senator John Kerry as secretary of state.

"Senator Kerry is a true statesman, and his record on the foreign policy issues of special interest to the Jewish community is exceptionally strong," the group said in a statement. "He has been a leader when it comes to Israel and has made it abundantly clear that he - like the Obama Administration - stands squarely behind the Jewish state. On Iran, Senator Kerry has been a prominent voice of support for the Obama Administration's leadership, and his commitment and knowledge on the subject are beyond question."
