UK's Jeremy Hunt: Israel is 'an 'inspiration,' 'beacon of democracy'

Speaking at the Conservative Friends of Israel's Annual Parliamentary Reception on Tuesday, UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt cited the Jewish State as a source of insipiration and a model of a successful modern country, despite the "many challenges it faces at its borders."Hunt went on to say that "UK support for Israel’s right to self defense is absolutely unconditional.""There's a historic friendship between the United Kingdom and Israel," that started with the Balfour Declaration of 1917, Hunt said, adding that the countries' shared history has been one of "strong, deep-rooted friendship based on a huge historic admiration for what the State of Israel has achieved against all the odds."
