Senator John Fetterman said supporting Israel has been ‘a very easy choice.’


Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) met with Israeli President Isaac Herzog on Tuesday during his first visit to the Jewish state.

The senator told Herzog that supporting Israel, “through everything your nation has been through after Oct. 7,” has “been a very easy and clear choice,” according to Herzog’s office.

“I’ve always wanted to be a very consistent voice throughout all this,” Fetterman said.

Herzog welcomed the senator and thanked him for “his continued support for Israel and solidarity with the Israeli people.”

“Those who stand with us showing moral clarity, we shall never forget them,” the Israeli president said. “We want to thank you. You’re a true leader.”

According to Herzog’s office, Fetterman showed the Israeli president a bracelet he was wearing that family members of victims murdered at the Nova festival by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7 gave to him.

“He told the president that he would not remove the bracelet until all the hostages had been returned home to their families,” the president’s office said.

Fetterman told Herzog that he was honored by the president’s words, “but I don’t really believe I should be thanked for just doing my job,” per Herzog’s office.
