Ambassador David Walzer
His Excellency the President of the State of Israel Reuven Rivlin and Mrs Nechama Rivlin will arrive on Monday morning in Brussels for a 4 days visit.
This attack against the LGBT community in Orlando is as cowardly as it is abhorrent. The Israeli people stand shoulder to shoulder with our American brothers and sisters in the moral and just fight against all forms of violence and hatred.
The struggle against terrorism is difficult and long, but the State of Israel will not be disheartened. There will be no resurgence of terror, and we will relentlessly pursue the perpetrators.
"In Israel we have no problem with criticism. Criticism is fine, delegitimization is not. Many Israelis have thick skin, but we must recognize where criticism is really anti-Semitism."
Though we have some disagreements on the best way to achieve peace, I deeply appreciate your commitment to pursue it. I want to thank you and President Hollande for your commitment to peace.
