“In the Holocaust we were helpless, defenseless and voiceless,” Netanyahu said. “Today, we have a strong country, a strong army, and our voice is heard among the nations.”
On Yom HaShoah, Israel’s national Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Jewish state remains “steadfast” in preventing Iranian aggression amid ongoing threats.
“We are preventing Iranian activity in Syria. These are not just words,” Netanyahu said in his speech at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial marking the commencing of Yom Hashoah.
“Our policy can be summed up in three words: ‘Steadfastness against aggression.’ Steadfastness on defense, steadfastness on deterrence, steadfastness against anyone who threatens to destroy us,” Netanyahu underscored.
