While much of the world continues to attack Israel, that is not always the case. Israel Hayom's Yori Yalon reports that this weekend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke in Jerusalem about how many countries are being drawn to the Jewish state because of its advances in technology and agriculture, as well as its ongoing fight against terrorism:
"Basic hostility toward Israel exists and it is embedded in various international organizations, but there is a huge shift taking place right now which did not occur in the past, in which many countries are growing closer to Israel," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday, speaking at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem at an event marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
Netanyahu said countries around the world were attracted to Israel's expertise in anti-terrorism, technology and agriculture.
Referring to the ongoing wave of Palestinian terrorism, Netanyahu vowed that the terrorists "would not achieve their goal."
