AIPAC mourns the passing of President George H.W. Bush — a statesman and patriot — who embodied dedication to America both in war and in peace.
President Bush played a critical role in the extraordinary effort to help rescue Ethiopian Jews and enable them to come to Israel. His administration successfully reversed the despicable "Zionism is racism" resolution at the United Nations.
President Bush was committed to finding a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As a leader who was devoted to America’s security, he understood the strategic value of the U.S. relationship with Israel, and his administration was instrumental in strengthening the military cooperation between the two democratic allies.
We join our fellow citizens in paying tribute to President Bush, who rightfully earned the deep respect of people around the world.
