WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker John Boehner says the United States must be a strong partner and trusted ally to Israel, not just a peace broker or observer.

In a subtle jab at the Obama administration on Monday, Boehner said that means showing solidarity with Israel.

Boehner's comments at the National Press Club came as Secretary of State John Kerry has tried to negotiate a humanitarian cease-fire in the Gaza war between Hamas and Israel.

Boehner spoke to the National Leadership Assembly for Israel, which was organized by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
