Netanyahu: The US is our greatest ally in commitment to democracy and freedom

Netanyahu focused on Israel's democratic roots and its friendship with the United States at the 65th anniversary of the Knesset on Tuesday.
"The US is our greatest ally, with a friendship based on shared values and a commitment to democracy and freedom," he said.
"We shouldn't take for granted that in 1949 leaderschose democracy. This was a time of emergency and war," he added. "Leaders had no doubt that Israel must be a democracy, which has deep roots in the Jewish tradition."
He also mentioned the great meaning in the fact that the Knesset opened its doors to the public on Tu B'Shvat - a day symbolizing "putting down roots in our homeland."
