“I want to thank you for coming here today and for the unequivocal support you have given Israel during these trying times, a support that reflects the overwhelming will of the American people,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells US President Joe Biden as they made joint statements, reading from prepared notes.

“We have seen your support every day in the breadth and depth of cooperation that we have had since the beginning of this war.”

Netanyahu calls the cooperation “truly unprecedented.”

Netanyahu lauds Biden for providing Israel “with the tools we need to defend ourselves,” and for “the clear message you’ve sent our enemies not to test our resolve.”

He also points at the two US aircraft carriers Biden sent to the region “to back up those words with action.”

“But above all, Mr. President, the world sees that support, and the moral clarity that you have demonstrated from the moment Israel was attacked.”

Netanyahu says Biden has “rightly drawn a clear line between the forces of civilization and the forces of barbarism.”
