The Thread of Our Life Is Never Severed

Forty-five years after the Yom Kippur War, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended a memorial service at Mount Herzl military cemetery to honor the brave IDF soldiers lost during that conflict. Netanyahu's remarks included these words on how the Jewish state will continue pursuing peace, while also defending herself against any and all threats:

We must make every effort to avoid war, but if we are forced into it, we will act powerfully against those who try to kill us.

Those who try to kill us today in the Middle East are led first and foremost by Iran and its aggression, which blatantly calls for our destruction. It is our duty to protect ourselves from this danger. The Middle East of today is replete with danger, yet rays of light do shine through. Our relations with the moderate Arab world is undergoing an unprecedented shift. Key countries are understanding better and better the value of having ties with Israel.

It might take some time, but I believe that gradually growing closer will bear significant fruit in the form of normalization and eventually, also peace.

This goal guides me, along with bolstering our strength in defense, deterrence and offense. We will continue to ensure that the thread of our life is never severed.
