Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz referred to Israel as one of America’s strongest allies in the Middle East, during a tour of ‘spin alley,’ following last night’s presidential debate.

In an interview with Fox News the Jewish Florida Congresswoman, and staunch Obama ally, said, “Time and again on the world stage, President Obama has stood up for Israel and demonstrated that they are one of our strongest allies, particularly in that region.”

Although last night President Obama referred to Israel as “our greatest ally in the region,” in an interview on CBS’s ’60 Minutes’ back in September, he also referred to Israel as “one of our closest allies in the region.” The Democratic Party appeared to apply this line of thought, regarding the status of Israel’s relationship with the United States, when it removed reference to Israel as “our strongest ally in the region,” from its 2012 party platform earlier this year.
