Netanyahu: We Are Master of Our Own Destiny
Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu returned to Israel following his visit the United States. PM Netanyahu told journalists upon his return, "We're going back for Purim and will read the Book of Esther. The Jews [during the time of the events of Purim] were not masters of their own destiny... We are now in another era, we have strong state and army. Threats have not disappeared, [but] our capacity is such that we are masters of our destiny and many friends are with us," Netanyahu stated.
