Netanyahu: Israelis are Masters of Our Own Fate


"Diplomacy must be backed up by the ability to act," stated Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu at a joint press conference with U.S. President Barack Obama in Jerusalem on Wednesday. 
 
"Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threats," he continued.
 
"Today we have both the right and the capability to defend ourselves. The essence of the re-birth of the Jewish state is the fulfillment of the age old dream of the Jewish people to be masters of our own fate," he added.
