Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer on Monday night in Chicago reaffirmed the strong partnership between the United States and Israel.

Speaking to more than 500 guests at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, Ambassador Dermer provided an update on the Iranian nuclear negotiations and the status of the US-Israel relationship.

He expressed support for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress earlier this month, saying that “Iran actively works for the annihilation of Israel.”

At the event, which was sponsored by Israel Bonds Chicago, Dermer credited the organization for helping to “transform Israel from a small agricultural backwater to a global technological powerhouse.”

Earlier this month, former US president George W. Bush spoke to a crowd at the Israel Bonds King David Award Dinner in Dallas, Texas.

Speaking to the crowd of of more than 1,500, Bush spoke about his first visit to Israel, calling it one of his most meaningful experiences. 

Netanyahu delivered a tribute to Israel Bonds by video at the dinner, noting the impact Israel bonds have on Israel's economy.

The dinner was the largest event in Israel Bond’s history since its inaugural event at Madison Square Garden in 1951, and more than $60 million in Israel bond investments were announced.
