Special Envoy Mitchell [reading statement from U.S. President Barack Obama on the occasion of Israel's Independence Day celebrations]:  Israel remains our important partner and key strategic ally in the Middle East and I am confident that our special relationship will only be strengthened in the months and years to come.
