Education and Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett addressed the official Remembrance Day Ceremony at Latrun on April 17, 2018.
The ceremony was attended by thousands of Jews from around the world and broadcast live to dozens of communities. During his speech, Bennett warned Iran and its proxies not to test Israel, because the Jewish State is stronger than they are.
“Last week, we remembered the price we paid for not having a state. Now we remember the price we have and pay for having a state. In two days at Auschwitz we lost the same number of soldiers we lost since the founding of Israel. Never will we depend on anyone but ourselves. Ladies and gentlemen, we are surrounded by enemies. Only a few weeks ago Iran sent an armed drone towards us. The Iranian octopus is trying to strangle us and break our spirit. But Israel is stronger than them. We have a 3,800-year-old nation, with the strongest spirit on earth. From here I tell the leaders of Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah—do not try us. United, we can overcome any challenge,” according to Arutz-7.
Israel’s northern borders are increasingly endangered by numerous enemies including Syria and the Lebanese-based Hezbollah terrorist group. The strongest and most dangerous is Iran that is steadily embedding its military resources in Syria and increasing its threats to attack the Jewish state. Iran has voiced its desire numerous times to “wipe out Israel.”
Individually and in your prayer groups, please continue to intercede according to Scripture: “Scatter the nations who delight in war” (Ps. 68:30, NIV).
