Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu went to the Kosel this evening for a moment of meditation ahead of his trip to Washington.
“On the eve of my flight to the United States, I wanted to come here, to the Western Wall,” he said to reporters at the Wall. “I want to take this opportunity to say that I respect the President of the United States, Barack Obama. I believe in the power of the relationship between Israel and the US, and their ability to overpower the differences – those that we have had and those that, one imagines, are still to come.”
“As the prime minister of Israel,” he said, “it is my duty to safeguard the security of Israel, and that is why we strenuously oppose the deal that is forming between Iran and the powers, which can endanger our very existence. In the face of an agreement like this, we must unite and explain the dangers that stem from such an agreement, to Israel, to the region, and to the entire world.” Read more at Arutz Sheva.
