US Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio slammed the Democrats and President Barack Obama on Friday saying that Obama "treats the Prime Minister of Israel with less respect than what he gives the Ayatollah in Iran."

"A strong national defense also means a foreign policy of moral clarity, one in which our allies can trust us and our adversaries dare not test us. I only bring this up because we have the direct opposite... there is only one pro-American, free enterprise democracy in the entire Middle East -- the State of Israel," said Rubio.

Rubio spoke along with a number of other candidates, including Texas senator Ted Cruz, Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
