AIFL congratulates the people of Israel on their demonstration of democracy
New York, NY, March 18, 2015 – The Board of directors of the America-Israel Friendship League congratulates the people of Israel on their demonstration of democracy in action. We also congratulate Prime Minister Netanyahu and look forward to continuing our close working relationship with him and his government.
Unlike her neighbors, Israel is a democracy and grants the right to vote to every Israeli citizen who has reached the age of 18, regardless of gender, ethnic group or religious belief. An impressive 71.8% of the electorate participated in this exercise of freedom.
The America-Israel Friendship League is proud to work closely with the government of Israel and its leaders to facilitate our mission of strengthening the ties between our two peoples. The AIFL offers Israel our support in her struggle for freedom, democracy and the right to exist as a democratic Jewish State.
