We join our fellow Americans in mourning the passing of Senator John McCain—an extraordinarily courageous defender of liberty. Throughout his congressional career Senator McCain stood with Israel because throughout his life he stood up for America's allies and our shared democratic values. As Chairman and longtime member of the Armed Services Committee, Senator McCain consistently worked to ensure that Israel had the critical resources to defend herself. In times of crisis, his eloquent voice could always be counted on to speak out in solidarity with the Jewish state. The pro-Israel community has lost a stalwart friend and our country has lost one of her bravest heroes. May his patriotic life inspire us all.
