Israel’s innovation on display at AIPAC Policy Conference

Israel is known as the innovation nation, and with very good reason.
Armstrong Williams

As we all know, Israel’s origins date all the way back to the time of the Bible, where it was described as the land of milk and honey, blessed by God and promised to the Jewish people. Today, more than ever, the Jewish people in Israel are fulfilling this promise and destiny. In many ways, it is a mirror of the United States on a far smaller scale. Both countries are champions of the same core values. The Jewish state and its people are truly living out their mandate to be light unto the nations.

When it comes to U.S. leaders, Israel has found no greater friend than President Donald J. Trump. He has already acted to correct a historic wrong by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and announcing his intention to move the U.S. Embassy there.

I personally cannot wait to visit the new embassy in its rightful place in Jerusalem. This critical and momentous change marks the beginning of a new era that will further strengthen the invaluable ties between our two great nations. As Israel continues to establish its dominance alongside the U.S. as a global leader in technology and business, we should welcome new and increased opportunities to grow together for the good of both our countries and the entire world.
