Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu posed population numbers released Sunday as a triumph over the Holocaust and other tragedies which have befallen the Jewish people.  "I can say that there are more than six million Jews in Israel, in light of the course our people has taken in the last century," he said at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting.

The prime minister said that Israel "is not short of challenges, but our strength is unifying the nation and repelling our enemies."

Netanyahu wished the nation a happy holiday ahead of Rosh Hashana and wished a speedy recovery to those still suffering from injuries sustained during the recent fighting on the Gaza front.
