This weekend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to a gathering of Jewish young people visiting the Jewish state. Arutz Sheva reports that in his speech, Netanyahu said that Israel is ready to defend herself from any threat, but is also very ready to make peace:
“By coming here you join the Israeli soldiers in helping secure Israel’s future. I want you to take everything that you see and share it with others, tell others about the miracle of Israel, this rare and thriving democracy in the Middle East”, said the Prime Minister.
“It’s a strong country ready to defend itself from threats and also reach out in peace for those wishing for it. When they attack us, stand proud and say who you are for: is it the free people of Israel or those severing off heads? If you stand for the free, stand for Israel, for the truth. Tell everyone to come see it for themselves- we will be waiting for you; this is your Birthright.”
During the event, Birthright Israel presented three IDF units with awards for their excellent collaboration with the organization throughout the year. These included: Yahalom, the Navy training base (Bahad), Nahal Infantry Brigade and the Intelligence Corps’ 121 unit...
