Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with the leadership of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Wednesday at his Jerusalem office.

The premier thanked them for “their deep and consistent support of the State of Israel,” according to a government statement.

Led by AIPAC President Michael Tuchin, the delegation is on a solidarity visit to the Jewish state.

In addition to Netanyahu and Tuchin, the meeting included National Security Adviser Tzachi Hanegbi; Netanyahu’s chief of staff, foreign policy adviser and spokesperson; AIPAC CEO Howard Kohr and AIPAC Israel Director Cameron Brown.

Benny Gantz, leader of the Blue and White Party and a minister-without-portfolio in Israel’s War Cabinet, hosted the AIPAC delegation in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

During the meeting, Gantz addressed rising antisemitism around the globe and discussed the Nov. 23 attack by anti-Israel rioters on the Los Angeles home of Tuchin, which the LAPD is investigating as a possible hate crime.

“As an outspoken leader of his community, Michael’s home was targeted and vandalized on Thanksgiving Eve in an unacceptable hate crime,” said Gantz.”

“Facing an alarming rise in antisemitism globally and bigotry towards the one and only Jewish state, we must all act to protect Jewish communities around the world.”
