The U.S president Barak Obama renewed his commitment to Israel's security in a recorded speech transmitted to a conference in Tel Aviv over the weekend to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the Israeli former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's assassination.
In his speech, Obama said that "Israel will always find in the United States and his administration a firm partner" pointing out that "the inextricable bonds between the two countries would not be broken."
"The United States will not waver in its support for Israel's security," Obama said while mentioning at the same time that "everyone should seek inspiration from Rabin's pursuit of peace."
The U.S. president called on Israelis to realize that they "will not find the true security while the Palestinians are gripped by hopelessness and despair." On the other hand, he demanded the Palestinians to comprehend that the Israelis' personal security feeling couldn't be ignored.
