I stand here today as your friend; As your life-long friend. I stand here as the President of the United States of America: your ally, your partner, your brother in arms and your democratic sister. I stand here today as someone who deeply and fundamentally believes in the just cause of Zionism in Israel’s moral premises. Our alliance is unshakeable, its foundations iron-clad. I stand here as a friend among friends, yet the real test of true and profound friendship is honesty. A durable friendship has to be based not only on the commonality of values and shared interests, but also on those instances where we diverge.
