Benjamin Netanyahu Lauds Sacrifice for Israel in Rosh Hashanah Message

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel in Rosh Hashanah greetings spoke of the painful year that passed and pledged his nation’s support to Diaspora Jews dealing with virulent anti-Semitism.

“Over the past few months, three of our teenagers were kidnapped and brutally murdered, thousands of rockets were fired at our country and too many of our bravest young men and their families made the most painful of sacrifices for Operation Protective Edge,” Netanyahu said.

“Throughout all that, we witnessed tremendous support for Israel from Jewish communities everywhere. And at the same time, we in Israel know that is has been a difficult period for many of your Jewish communities. You face increasingly virulent and even violent anti-Semitism,” he said.

Netanyahu thanked Diaspora Jewry for its support and pledged that Israel “will continue to stand by your side as you confront hatred and intolerance.”

“Israel will remain a source of pride and strength for Jews, no matter where they live,” he concluded.
