Obama in Israel: Jewish State Has Right to Exist
Wrapping up his three-day visit to Israel, President Obama paid respects to its heroes and to victims of the Holocaust, solemnly reaffirm-ing the Jewish state’s right to exist. Accompanied by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres, Obama laid wreaths at the graves of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism who died in 1904 before realizing his dream of a Jewish homeland, and former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995.
