WASHINGTON -

Israel named an Arrow defense missile facility after the late Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, according to Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.

"This honor is another example of how Senator Inouye’s influence and hard work have deeply impacted not only Hawaii, but also our nation and the world.  According to the Jerusalem Post, this is the first time Israel has named a facility after a non-Israeli," said Hanabusa, "When I had the opportunity to travel to Israel with a congressional delegation in August, Prime Minister Netanyahu told me that he loved Senator Inouye and that Israel could not thank him enough.  Senator Inouye played an integral role in transforming the relationship between our two countries, and I am pleased that our allies around the world continue to honor him and carry on his legacy."
