Blinken vows U.S. support for Israel despite unease


WASHINGTON >> Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday the U.S. will not shrink from its unwavering support for Israel despite stark difference­s with Prime Minister-elect Benjamin Netanyahu.

Speaking to a left-leaning group that some on the right accuse of being too sympatheti­c to the Palestinia­ns and Iran, Blinken said the United States will remain a stalwart friend of Israel.

The U.S.-Israel “partnershi­p has always been underwritt­en by the United States ironclad commitment to Israel’s security, a commitment that has never been stronger than it is today,” he said.
