Bibi on Board the USS George H.W. Bush
The Fellowship | July 5, 2017
As Stand for Israel told you earlier, the American supercarrier USS George H.W. Bush spent the 4th of July in the Holy Land, and PM Netanyahu was able to celebrate the day with his American friends and allies. Aboard the ship, Netanyahu touted the shared values and vision of his nation and their allies in the United States:
You can applaud. This is true.
Mayor of Haifa, whom I recognize too, you know how true that is.
This great aircraft carrier is a floating island of America. It’s a symbol to the world of freedom and victory. The great crew that works off this ship helps keep the world secure from the threat of terror. This carrier has served as a base for X flights against the Islamic State, and the war against ISIS should be seen for what it is, a clash between good and evil.
Every sailor on this ship should be immensely proud that you are serving good. Your families should be proud of you; the American people should be proud of you. I know that they are.
So whenever your grandchildren ask you where you were during this fight for civilization, you can say, “We were on the front lines. We were on board the carrier George H.W. Bush.”
I thank you, the people of Israel thank you, and the free world thanks you.
