Netanyahu meets House leaders, thanks Congress for ‘display of solidarity’

Top Republican and Democratic congressional leaders affirmed U.S. solidarity with Israel on Tuesday amid growing concerns over Iran’s nuclear program.

Following a meeting of key House leaders and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the U.S. Capitol, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said “the United States Congress will never allow Israel to stand alone.”

Boehner added that the “growing threat of a nuclear Iran cannot be ignored,” and that the U.S. and Israel must be clear with each other, and to the Iranians.
