PM: Unity Needed for Unprecedented Challenges Ahead


Prime Minister Netanyahu said in a speech Saturday that the main task of the next government will be to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. He said that he would work to resolve the issue of equal burden, "which is tearing the nation apart and leading to civil war." 

Netanyahu called on all parties in the Knesset to join the coalition. "We must be united," he said.

"During the last four years we managed a global economic crisis and unprecedented  regional upheaval…but the security issues and general crises around us have not passed and have even intensified, and they present us with challenges that we have not seen for many years."
