Relations Israel and U.S.

    Relations between Israel and the United States
    Eleven minutes after the proclamation of Israel's independence (14th of May, 1948) American president Harry S Truman extended recognition to the new state. This act marked the beginning of a relationship based on common values and characterized by deep friendship and mutual respect. Both countries are vibrant democracies whose political and legal systems are anchored in liberal traditions, both began as pioneer societies, and both are still absorbing and integrating new immigrants.
    At times the two countries have 'agreed to disagree'. When differences do arise, they generally stem from the conflict between the United States position as a superpower with complex global interest and Israel's primary concern, as a small state in a turbulent region, of preservation of its sovereignty and security.
