PM: We Must Never Put Our Fate in the Hands of Others


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Sunday, "We must never hand over our fate to the hands of others." Speaking at an observance in memory of former prime ministers and presidents, he added, "We have the ability to defend ourselves with our own forces against Iran, against Syria, against Hizbullah or any other fanatic source who threatens to harm us."

Netanyahu also said, "Within this ability lies a deterrent against the dangers of those who visualize our doom, and the capacity to subdue in the event deterrence fails." He concluded, "At the same time, not to detract from the importance of our ability to act on our own to protect ourselves, we must act, we must look for allies in the region and beyond."
