Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked: John McCain was 'a true friend of Israel'

US Senator John McCain dies aged 81

If anyone ever doubted John McCain's global stature, the outpouring of condolences from across the world proved the very opposite on Sunday.

Former US President Barack Obama is one of many paying tribute to Arizona Senator John McCain, following the death of his 2008 presidential rival. "We know that his flame lives on, in each of us".

"They key thing", Kyl added about McCain's replacement, "is to represent the state of Arizona, but also continue to represent all the people of the United States on an worldwide level".

Senator John McCain, US Presidential candidate for the Republican Party, visits Hall of names at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum in Jerusalem on March 18, 2008.

"John put principle before politics".

"One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur", he said.

Last year, in his last act of defiance, McCain returned to the Capitol less than a week after his cancer was diagnosed to cast his vote on the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act - the biggest legislative achievement of President Barack Obama, the man who defeated him in the 2008 election.

Obama said in a statement that the two political opponents "saw our political battles, even, as a privilege, something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home, and to advance them around the world".

"A warrior of strength, a patriot of heart, and a man of conviction". He was a piblic servant in the finest traditions of our country. "And to me, he was a friend whom I'll deeply miss", Mr Bush said.

'The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad - but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us, ' she wrote in a statement shared on Twitter.

John McCain is pulled out of a Hanoi lake by a mix of North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Vietnamese citizens in October, 1967. "Americans will be forever grateful for his heroic military service & his steadfast integrity". "Canadians join Americans tonight in celebrating his life and mourning his passing".

The grim prognosis didn't appear to immediately slow down McCain who kept a robust schedule and didn't hold back his pointed criticism of President Donald Trump. "I always admired and respected John from the opposite side of the aisle, because he thrived under pressure, and would work to find common ground, no matter how hard".

Senator McCain was also part of an "internationalist" bipartisan coalition in the Senate that would vote for free trade (the North American Free Trade Agreement chief among them) and to supporting and expanding NATO after the fall of the Soviet Union, with Joe Biden among the like-minded Democrats on these critical votes in the US Senate.

Sarah Palin, whom McCain plucked from obscurity to become his 2008 White House running mate, described him as "an American original" and "a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs".

Other plans were taking shape, too. Sen.

In December, Biden consoled Meghan McCain as she tearfully spoke of her father's illness on ABC's "The View".

"As you go through life, you meet few truly great people". Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said McCain's support for the Jewish state "never wavered".
