netanyahuIsraeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, who will head a large but weaker Likud party in the new Knesset, gave a victory speech at his party’s headquarters last night.

“You have once again proved that Israel is a vibrant, dynamic, exemplary democracy, and I am proud to be your Prime Minister, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity for a third time to lead the State of Israel,” Netanyahu told the Israeli public. “This is a great honor but also a great responsibility.”

Netanyahu said that he plans to form a government that will be based on several key principles.

These principles, he said, according to an Arutz Sheva report, are maintaining a powerful stance in the face of security challenges, preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, fiscal responsibility in the wake of the global financial crisis, political responsibility in striving for true peace, working towards equal sharing of the burden, reducing the cost of living and reducing the cost of housing in Israel.

“I see many partners in our mission and, by joining hands in a wide coalition we can succeed,” Netanyahu said, adding, “I believe that the results of the election are an opportunity to make the changes that the people of Israel are longing for.”
