Obama reaffirms 'unshakable support, commitment to Israel'

US President Barack Obama on Tuesday reaffirmed his "unshakable support and commitment" to Israel.
Obama made the comments at thestart of a week of intense Middle East diplomacy, while speaking at a White House reception marking Jewish American Heritage Month.
The US president plans to deliver a major policy speech on the "Arab spring" on Thursday, meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday and give an address at  AIPAC’s opening session on Sunday.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Monday said the AIPAC address would “stress the importance of the US-Israeli relationship,” but would not be “a major policy speech.”
