[applause] >> thank you. i honored to be with so many familiar faces in this garden. anyone should understand my inclination and enthusiasm, you should be.
with a grandfather who thought was the future you should understand that. [laughter] you all think i'm getting i am not. i have known many of you for a long time. you know my love for israel is deep-rooted. when i say and you say a righteous christian, my dad. i've had the honor -- it's hard to say that they were, over 50 years it cannot be that long. over 50 years the federal government to help building the relationship. fifty years ago we never had this audience before. we do not have this audience out here. but so many representing so many nations and faces as well. it is important. now you know, sink israel thrive, seeing the wildest
dreams of israel's founding fathers and mothers grow into reality israel children enjoy the day as close to miraculous. in the catholic church a hammock based on one of the songs. and it says may he raise you up on eagles wing and bury you on the breath of john until we meet again god hold you in the palm of his hand. well, every time i come over these years thank god, god seems to be cool thing is the palm of his hand. we get stronger not weaker. and to me it's pretty miraculous. the torah tells a story of the prophet to describe the ancient israel as the people that dwell alone. in the portion that will be read in services across the united states this week, i know your
uncle also wrote a book but that title. but, as i look at on the proud strong israelis in the audience at the nation made the desert bloom and built the iron dome, i see people who are growing more secure, more integrated, more confident and have greater relations with their neighbors. a nation that just porch peace before and it never dwell alone. as long for the united states you will never ever be alone. [applause] now as you know, there's still so much more work to be done. that is why america's commitment to israel's security remains ironclad. today and in the future that commitment is not about me or any other american president. it springs in the deep affinity enduring connection between our people.
and it is our responsibility as leaders to nurture that bonds. to ensure it go stronger, deeper, broader as we navigate the challenges ahead. and that will continue to be profound. they will change as a leader i can say without hesitation today is among the greatest honors of my career. and i mean that from the bottom of my heart. thank you, mr. president. since i know you and i share connections as i said in ireland, i hope you forgive me for ending by quoting an irish poet seamus haney. he wrote and said history says don't hope on the side of the grave. but then, once in a lifetime that long tidal wave of justice rises up in the hope and history rhyme. i truly believe we are at one of those moments if we get lucky and work hard.
we can make hope and history rhyme. in the united states are both built on hope. grit and determination. i believe together will stay true to our founding values. and that we can help make hope and history rhyme once more. but this time, this time in with most dysfunctional past regions of the world where you again will be fully integrated and be one of the leaders. so mr. president, it's an incredible honor. and as some of you heard me save my mother or he or she was a jailbait hush up and let the man get on with his job. thank you, thank you, thank you. thank you, mr. president. president of the state of israel transects will bestow the presidential medal of honor on the president of the united states of america, joe biden very. >> the honorable joseph r biden
