    This speech has been attributed to Netanyahu, but it can’t be confirmed if it was him:

    quote/

    Only 70 years ago! The Jews were taken to slaughter like sheep.
    60 years ago!
    no country. No Army.

    Seven Arab countries declared war on the small Jewish state, only a few hours after its creation!
    we were 650 Jews against the rest of the Arab world!

    NO IDF (Israel Defense Army).

    No powerful air force, only brave people with nowhere to go.
    Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia
    all attacked at the same time.
    the country that the United Nations gave us was a 65 % desert.
    the country is out of nowhere!

    35 years ago! We fought the three armies most
    Powerful in the middle east, and we swept them in six days.

    We fought against various coalitions of Arab countries, which had modern armies and many Soviet weapons, and we have always beaten them!

    Today we have:
    a country,
    an army,
    a powerful air force,
    A State-of-the-Art Economy, which exports millions of dollars.
    Intel – Microsoft – ibm develops products at home.
    our doctors receive awards for medical research.

    we make the desert bloom, and sell oranges, flowers and vegetables all over the world.
    Israel has sent its own satellites into space!
    three satellites at the same time!
    We are proud to be at the same rank as:
    The United States, which has 250 million inhabitants,
    Russia, which has 200 million inhabitants,
    China, which has 1.3 billion inhabitants;
    Europeans – France, Great Britain, Germany – with 350 million inhabitants.

    the only countries in the world to send objects into space!
    Israel is now part of the family of the nuclear powers,
    with the United States, Russia, China, India, France, and
    Great Britain.

    (we have never officially admitted it, but everyone knows it)
    and say that only 60 years ago,
    we were LED, ashamed and hopeless, to slaughter!
    we have extirpés the smoking ruins of Europe,
    we have won our wars here with less than nothing
    we built our little “Empire” from nothing.

    Who’s Hamas to scare me?
    to terrify me?
    you make me laugh!
    Passover was celebrated;
    Let’s not forget what this is about.
    we survived Pharaoh,
    we survived the Greeks,
    we survived the Romans,
    we survived the inquisition in Spain,
    we have the pogroms in Russia,
    we survived Hitler,
    we survived the Germans,
    we survived the Holocaust,
    we survived the armies of seven Arab countries,
    we survived saddam.
    we will survive the enemies present

    Think of any time in human history!

    Think about it, for us, the Jewish people,
    the situation has never been better!
    then let’s face the world,

    Let us remember:
    all nations or cultures
    who once tried to destroy us,
    no longer exist today – while we still live!
    Egypt?
    the Greeks?
    Alexander of Macedonia?
    the Romans? (does anyone still speak Latin these days? )
    The Third Reich?
    and look at us,
    The Bible Nation,
    The slaves of Egypt,
    We are still here,

    And we speak the same language!
    Here, and now!
    Arabs don’t know yet,
    but they will learn that there is a God.
    as long as we keep our identity, we are forever.

    So forgive us for not worrying,
    not to cry,
    not to be afraid.
    things are fine here.
    they could certainly get better,

    However:
    Don’t believe the media,
    they don’t tell you
    parties continue to take place,
    people continue to live,
    people keep coming out,
    people continue to see friends.

    Yes, our morale is low.
    so what?

    Only because we mourn our deaths while others rejoice in the blood shed.

    that is why we will win, in the end.

    Never sleep or sleep the guardian of Israel! Yahweh God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
