Obama Wraps Up Israel Visit
JERUSALEM (AP) - President Barack Obama is having lunch with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before heading off to Jordan.
Earlier today, Obama paid respects to Israel's heroes and to victims of the Holocaust.
And at a Holocaust memorial, Obama said, "The state of Israel does not exist because of the Holocaust, but with the survival of a strong Jewish state of Israel, such a holocaust will never happen again."
