It is necessary to ensure that the flame inside Israel remains lit before becoming a “light unto the nations,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday, a day after declaring that Israel would not open its doors to refugees flooding Europe.

At a traditional Rosh Hashana toast for workers in his office, Netanyahu said, “We are determined to turn Israel into a world power, and not only to defend ourselves, but also to be a light unto the nations. But first we have to secure our light here, in our land.”Netanyahu, citing the current crisis in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, said “we have an incredible country.

“We are building our country” he enthused. “We are building our army, our intelligence, and our economy. We are going to educate our children to deal with the world of tomorrow, we are bringing down the size of classes, adding teacher's assistants, teaching math and lowering taxes.”

Lowering taxes, he stressed, “is important.”
