“The source of Israeli society’s achievements does not lie in the government in Jerusalem, but in the strength of the Israeli majority, the people of the nation who continue to take responsibility for the state’s future: those who serve in the IDF and perform reserve duty; those who work and provide for their families; those who are willing to help those who cannot help themselves; the taxpayers and those who create jobs; the law abiders; and those with morals, who raise their children to love this land and its people. The future of the State of Israel and its ability to cope with those who seek to do us harm depends on this group, that is, on us.”
