U.S. Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts says Americans should stand together in "unwavering commitment" to Israel in the wake of a deadly commando raid on ships taking aid to the Gaza Strip.

The Republican Brown was the keynote speaker Sunday night at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee leadership dinner in Boston.

He says he was disappointed that so many condemned Israel after the raid without considering Israel is at war with Gaza. He says Israel is one of the United States' greatest allies against jihad and says Israel is not a liability to America.

Israel raided an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip last week. Eight Turks and an American were killed in the fighting.

President Barack Obama has called the raid "tragic" but stopped short of condemning the actions of Israeli forces.
