Chief of Staff: IDF Proof of People of Israel's Rebirth


Chief of Staff Benny Gantz of the Israel Defense Forces said, Monday evening, that the IDF is proof of the rebirth of the people of Israel.

Speaking at the state ceremony to open Holocaust Memorial Day, Gantz said "During the period when the Jews were struggling to survive, they sowed the seeds of hope and taught their comrades to act with boldness, which led them to rise and deal with the Nazis. The legacy they left is a lamp unto our feet."
