American Jewish Congress President and the American Council for World Jewry Chairman Jack Rosen congratulated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his reelection

“As is typical in Israel's robust democratic system, many other voices and opinions will have to be taken into account in addition to Prime Minister Netanyahu's Likud party’s 30 seats. Compromise will be essential for progress," he said.

On US-Israel relations, Rosen said the following: “Election season politics should not obscure the critical issues that Israel and the United States must confront in the Middle East. Iran's ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons must be stymied, terrorism must be defeated, and the effort to find peace and security must always remain a high priority. Only by standing together, as two strong democratic countries unshakably bound by our shared values and interests, can the US and Israel hope to succeed. I am certain that President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu will set aside whatever differences they may have in the interest of achieving the goals Americans and Israelis believe is at the heart of our decades-long alliance.”
