The United States is a close ally, but Israel must speak out against the danger of a negotiated deal with Iran, because the ultimate responsibility for securing the Jewish state rests on the government’s shoulders, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.
“We are especially grateful for the bipartisan support for Israel across the United States, our great ally,” Netanyahu said at Yad Vashem during a ceremony marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
“We share a special bond with the United States, which is built on common values, and it’s reflected in our expansive cooperation, especially on matters of security,” he said. “Yet it is the government of Israel that holds the ultimate responsibility for the security of the one and only Jewish state. We must speak our mind about the dangers to our people and our state. This is something we could not do at the time of the Holocaust.”
