(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Following is an excerpt from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks today (Sunday, 23 July 2017), at Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem, at the state memorial ceremony for Ze'ev Jabotinsky:
"We are in Jerusalem, and our hearts are in Modi'in, at the funeral of the members of the Salomon family.
On Friday night we witnessed a heart-rending drama of vicious terrorism, the fruit of deep and unbridled Jew-hatred. We have been dealing with murderous terrorism for 100 years – and we will defeat it. The pain is deep but our roots in the land are no less deep. Terror will never defeat us. Terror will never defeat us. We will continue to strengthen our state; we will continue to build up our land."
