Netanyahu said in a statement: "Since the establishment of the State of Israel, our country has been blessed to have had the unwavering support of outstanding American leaders who were dedicated to strengthening the security of Israel and to deepening the unique and powerful alliance between Israel and the United States. But even among these leaders, the contributions of Senator Inouye stand out."
