"When I entered this office, I requested that this map be hung in front of me," he says in the video. "As prime minister of Israel, I must always look reality in the eye. Our region is undergoing a great upheaval."

Netanyahu pointed to Syria, Lebanon and Sinai as sources of terror attacks that his government worked to prevent, and indicated Iran on the map, saying he enlisted the world's help to fight the nuclear threat. In addition, he mentioned Iron Dome batteries installed in the south and the fence on the Egyptian border.



The prime minister asked for Israeli citizens' help to finish important security missions like filling Israel with Iron Dome batteries, installing fences around all of Israel's borders and "most important of all," he said, stopping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

This will only be with a strong ruling party, Netanyahu concluded, calling for Israelis to vote for Likud Beytenu.
