US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday touted the US-Israel relationship, saying Washington "has Israel's back."
"For years we have told you, our Israeli friends, that America has Israel's back," Clinton said at the Saban Forum in Washington. "This much is constant and clear: America and Israel are in it together."Clinton also touted her country's continued support during Operation Pillar of Defense. "When Israel responded to a rain of rockets... America's next move was never in question," she said. "The fragile ceasefire is holding. The skies above Israel are clear. And we are beginning to see the efforts to rebuild and resume daily life. But the world knows, and always will know, that whenever Israel is threatened the United States will be there."
