Benyamin Netanyahu as Knesset Chairman in 2006

“If the Arabs lay down their arms there will be no more war, but if Israel lays down its weapons there would be no more Israel.”


Benyamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel

In a region where women are stoned, gays are hanged, Christians are persecuted, Israel … is different…. Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens enjoy real democratic rights…. Israel is not what is wrong about the Middle East. Israel is what is right about the Middle East.

In my office in Jerusalem, there’s an ancient seal. It’s a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible. The seal was found right next to the Western Wall, and it dates back 2,700 years, to the time of King Hezekiah. Now, there’s a name of the Jewish official inscribed on the ring in Hebrew.  His name was Netanyahu.
