Mitt Romney sends condolences to Netanyahu, no word yet from Obama

Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney has sent condolences to Prime Minister Netanyahu on the death of his father, Ben Zion Netanyahu z"l (of blessed memory).
[P]resumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney extended his condolences today to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the death of his father.

Ben-Zion Netanyahu, a historian and Zionist activist, died today in Israel. He was 102.

Romney called the Israeli prime minister his "friend" in his statement. The two men have been friends for years, and their relationship was forged in the 1970s when they were young up-and-comers sizing up companies for the Boston Consulting Group.

"This is a loss for all of Israel and for all who care about Israel," Romney said about the elder Netanyahu's death.
As of this writing, there is no word from President Obama.

May Mr. Netanyahu rest in peace, his soul in the hand of the Lord. And may He comfort the Netanyahu family in this time of loss and grief.
