Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit back Tuesday against comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., suggesting that the reason Israel is solidly supported by the U.S. government is because of money.

“From this Benjamin, it’s not about the Benjamins!” Netanyahu told the AIPAC conference in Washington, speaking by satellite hookup from Israel.

“The reason Americans love Israel,” he added, “is not because they want our money, it’s because they share our values. It’s because America and Israel share a love of freedom and democracy.”
