AIPAC MOURNS THE PASSING OF SENATOR INOUYE

AIPAC mourns the passing of Senator Daniel Inouye, an extraordinary American patriot and hero. Senator Inouye deeply understood the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship, and as chairman of the Appropriations Committee, worked tirelessly and effectively to ensure that America’s ally, Israel, had the necessary resources to defend her people. He will be missed by all who appreciated his many decades of leadership in strengthening the ties between America and Israel.
