ITV News' Political Editor Tom Bradby is with David Cameron as he addresses Israeli MPs in the Knesset:
'With me, you have a PM whose belief in Israel is unbreakable,' Cameron says.
'Delegitimising the State of Israel is wrong. It is abhorrent,' he says. 'And together we will defeat it.'
Cameron is being pretty trenchant here in his support for Israel.
