“The greatest correction to anti-Semitism is the State of Israel and the Israel Defense Forces. Once we were a leaf blown in the wind and could have massacred, today we have the power to react. On the eve of Chanukah, the spirit of the Maccabees is here – you are the Maccabees. We overcome our enemies with extraordinary strength and with an extraordinary spirit. I am proud of you. I believe in you and the people of Israel believe in you. Keep up to have success, guard the state, take care of yourself, and guard each other. ” said Netanyahu to the fighters.
