The Obama administration is spreading confusion with mixed message about its stand on Israel, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said in a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee today.

The Virginia Republican’s speech, which was closed to the press but released in printed remarks, came as President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met at the White House.

"Let us not send mixed messages when it comes to Israel. That only serves to confuse the world, including Israel's enemies," Cantor said, according to The Hill.

"Confusion about where America stands has raised questions about what some of our leaders in Washington are willing to put up with. That's not just about Iran — it's about Syria, it's about Iraq, it's about Egypt, and it's about Libya."

However, House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., spoke at the same event and said Obama has upheld the commitment to Israel’s security forged by previous presidents of both parties.

"No one should misconstrue difference of opinion or emphasis as in any way weakening a bond forged by principles, values, history, and common interests," The Hill quoted Hoyer as saying.
