Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took the opportunity ahead of Independence Day on Wednesday to acknowledge Israel's "millions of friends," both Jewish and non-Jewish, and thank them for "their unwavering support" of the Jewish state.
In a special YouTube video posted on the eve of Israel's celebration of 64 years of Independence, the prime minister said in English that Israel is "unique" for having such "passionate friends... for whom the well-being, security and future of our country are so important."
"This passionate support, along with Israel’s strong army, free economy and dynamic society, is the pillar of our national strength," he said.
