Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday at a Likud faction candle lighting ceremony that a decrease in unemployment rates was not the result of a miracle but instead years of hard work.

"We have been informed that the unemployment rate has dropped to five percent, and this is the lowest unemployment rate in the western world," the prime minister told Likud members. "It's not a result of miracles, but a result of hard work," he added.
