Netanyahu meets US lawmakers in Yerushalayim


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Jerusalem on Wednesday with a delegation of 41 Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), a longtime Israel ally, is leading the delegation, which arrived in Israel on Tuesday and is set to tour the country this week. The visit was organized by the American Israel Education Foundation, an affiliate of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

The Prime Minister’s Office has so far released only a brief excerpt of Netanyahu’s remarks at the meeting.

“There is an exceptional revolution taking place in Israel’s position in the world,” he reportedly told the delegation. “This is seldom told. We’ve forged 300 agreements in three years.”
