"A strong national defense also means a foreign policy of moral clarity, one in which our allies can trust us and our adversaries dare not test us. I only bring this up because we have the direct opposite... there is only one pro-American, free enterprise democracy in the entire Middle East -- the State of Israel," said Rubio.

Rubio spoke along with a number of other candidates, including Texas senator Ted Cruz, Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
