    The leading pro-Israel organisation in America has praised the re-election at the 2010 mid-terms of “many of the strongest friends and supporters of the US-Israel relationship.”

    The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) congratulated those elected to the112th Congress, which convenes in January.

    AIPAC offered special praise for the three Jewish politicians voted in to congress for the first time, including Connecticut senator Richard Blumenthal and David Cicilline, the new representative for Rhode Island and the third openly gay Jewish congressman in office.

    In a statement, AIPAC said it “looks forward to continuing to work with the leadership and members of both parties in both houses of congress.

    “It is abundantly clear that the 112th congress will continue America’s long tradition of staunch support for a strong, safe and secure Israel and an abiding friendship between the United States and our most reliable ally in the Middle East.”

    In total, 39 members of congress are Jewish, including 12 senators. All are Democrats, with the exception of the independent Joe Lieberman, and the Republican Eric Cantor, who is tipped to take on the powerful position of Majority leader of the House.
