PM Netanyahu at Yad Vashem on Holocaust Remembrance Day

Once again in Europe and elsewhere, Jews are being slandered, vilified and targeted just for being Jews.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Tuesday, January 27, 2015, at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel:

“My responsibility as Prime Minister of Israel is to ensure that the State of Israel will never again be threatened with destruction. My responsibility is to see to it that there will not be a reason to build additional memorial sites such as Yad Vashem…

We have changed.

The Jews have changed.

We are no longer a stateless people endlessly searching for a safe haven.

We are no longer a powerless people begging others to protect us.

Today we are an independent and sovereign people in our ancestral homeland.

Today we can speak out against the hateful voices of those seeking our destruction.

Today we can protect ourselves and defend our freedom.

Love him, hate him. It was a good speech today.
