(NEWS) VP Joe Biden Vows Support Of Israel To Country’s Largest Jewish Charity

"Vice President Joe Biden pledged to Israel his unwavering support and that of the President Obama in front of several thousand attendees of the annual conference of North America's largest Jewish charitable network.

Biden, speaking at the opening plenary of the Jewish Federations of North America, which brings in between $2 billion and $3 billion per year through its 157 federations, told the roughly 4,000 attendees at the Marriott New Orleans that despite tensions that may seem to exist between the Obama administration and Israel, the tension does not imply a weakening of ties between the two countries.

'This administration represents an unbroken chain in American leaders who have understood this this critical relationship,' Biden said, pounding his fist on his podium for effect. 'It is one that we will not yield one single inch. President Obama feels exactly the same way I do. The ties between our countries are literally unbreakable.'"
