Netanyahu points out that modern Israel is built on the intellectual foundations of Zionism's founding fathers, just as the United States is built on the principles formulated by America's founding fathers. The ideas that these five men taught Jews changed Jewish history, just as those taught by American fathers changed their country. These ideas have withstood the test of time. The insights of both are not relevant to their country alone; these men taught ideas that are important for all nations and people.
One of the many lessons that the Israeli Zionists taught is that it may be impossible to cause anti-Semitism to disappear, but people must realize that a strong Jewish State would give Jews the power to defend themselves. This lesson has been expanded today to an understanding that a viable Israel will help secure America and its ideals.Read more ›
