October 23, 2012 04:17

Both current President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney affirmed their support for their ally, Israel, in the face of the Iranian nuclear threat.

Obama commented: "Israel is a true friend, greatest ally. If Israel is attacked, America will stand with Israel."Romney underscored the same point, saying: "We will stand with Israel. If Israel is attacked, we have their back."

After being accused of "skipping Israel" by Romney, Obama countered: "I went to Israel as a candidate. I didn’t take fundraisers. I went to Yad Vashem the Holocaust memorial. I went to Sderot and saw families who showed me where missiles had fallen from Gaza. We funded Iron Dome. That’s how I’ve used my travels.”
