Defense Minister Moshe (Boogie) Yaalon spoke at a cornerstone laying ceremony for a new memorial hall in memory of Israel’s fallen, at Har Herzl.
The MK said, “Here will stand a site that will serve as a central home for remembering within which, the names of Israel’s fallen will be etched. A home for sorrow. A home for remembering. For strength. For devotion. For what makes us unique… We will continue to outstretch our hands towards peace, even to the worst of our enemies…but we will not compromise our own safety…”
