Although peace between Israel and its neighboring countries seems impossible to reach, peace will ultimately come along with recognition of a Jewish state, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday at a memorial ceremony at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.
"Even though peace seems distant and unattainable and there will be many more obstacles before it is reached, peace between us and our neighbors will come," Netanyahu said.
"We will know peace has been reached when all our neighbors recognize the right of a Jewish state to exist, just as Benjamin Ze'ev [Theodore] Herzl predicted."
