In a letter to Jewish communities around the world, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thanking them for their support in the recent weeks. In the letter, Netanyahu said that “The Jewish people always unites to meet challenges. The current period is no different. Over the past two months, beginning with the kidnapping and murder of three of our teenagers, through Operation Protective Edge, the support of Jewish communities around the world has been a source of great strength for the people of Israel.

“At the same time, we know this has been a difficult period for Jews around the world,” Netanyahu continued. “Many of you have had to face aggressive protesters, and even violent anti-Semitism. In the name of the State of Israel and Israelis, I thank you for the protection you gave our just battle to restore long-term quiet and security that all Israelis deserve. I ask that you continue raising your voices to battle the lies that are aimed at Israel.

“Israel will, for its part, continue standing at your side, as you deal with hatred and intolerance. Jews everywhere should be able to live with pride, not fear. I have great faith in the Jewish people and in the justice of our cause,” Netanyahu added. “I look forward to continuing to build our common future together with you.”
