Senator from unofficial 51st State speaks out
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday pushed back against comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who had drawn bipartisan criticism after saying that politicians' support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins."

"From this Benjamin, it's not about the Benjamins," Netanyahu said in a speech delivered through a video call at a conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). "The reason...is not because they want our money. It's because they share our values."

"It's because America and Israel share a love of freedom and democracy. It's because we cherish individual rights and the rule of law." he added in a speech laden with praise for President Trump. "We don't judge people by the color of their skin, their religion or their sexual orientation."
