Pointing to his own record of support for Israel in order to question those of his Republican rival, US President Barack Obama asserted that cooperation between Washington and Jerusalem has never been stronger than during his presidency, speaking at a campaign rally in Florida Tuesday.

Recalling statement by Mitt Romney from earlier this year in which the Republican presidential candidate said of his positions on Israel, "I think by and large you could just look at the things the president's done and do the opposite."

"Last night I reminded [Romney] that cooperation with Israel has never been stronger," Obama retorted in front of a crowd of supporters.
