Marco Rubio: Israel, Europe, U.S. in same fight against terrorism

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio says Israel’s fight against terrorism is the same one being fought by the United States and Europe.

The Florida senator spoke in Miami Beach during a large rally in support of Israel and against anti-Semitism.

He says the threat to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv is the same as the threat to Paris, London and U.S. cities.

And Rubio warns against “casting out one of our own”— meaning Israel — in hopes of appeasing jihadis.

He was joined at the rally by Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and other top Florida lawmakers.

The “Never Again” rally was organized by major Jewish organizations to bring attention to attacks on Israel and to commemorate the 77th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass.
