Cruz says he’ll stand ‘unapologetically’ with Israel

“Instead of a president who boycotts Prime Minister Netanyahu, imagine a president who stands unapologetically with Israel,” says Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who announced his candidacy for the presidency on Sunday.

Cruz speaks just as the Obama administration ratchets up pressure on the government in Israel.

Speaking to Israel National News in June, Cruz said that “the friendship between Israel and America is and should be unbreakable,” while describing “the prospect of Iran gaining nuclear weapons capability” as “the gravest threat to both” countries.
