PM Netanyahu’s Remarks upon his Return to Israel from Canada and the US

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned a short while ago today (Wednesday), 7.3.12, from his visit to Canada, where he met with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and the US, where he met with President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and members of both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Upon landing, Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "I return from a very important visit to the US and Canada. I was received warmly, we have many courageous friends.

We are returning for Purim, and this evening we will read in the Book of Esther about those days in which Jews were not masters of their fate and could not defend themselves.

Today we are in a different world and a different era; we have a strong state and army.

The threats have not disappeared, but we can defend ourselves.

We have very many friends that stand at our side and will do so at all times."
