(INN).Delivering his remarks as the keynote speaker at the 29th annual Bet El dinner in New York, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Sunday that Israel can fight its own wars and does not need the US to fight for it.
"Today's challenges demand that we defend our land from slander and battle the lies that are being thrown at us. As Israel endures constant delegitimization we must remember that we are powerful when we are united as one".
"The world tells us that our national mission in misguided and immoral and that we are illegal colonizers but nothing could be further from the truth...at the time of our redemption, the Third Jewish Commonwealth will not be destroyed. We must never give up on our ability to defend ourselves by ourselves. We will never ask the Americans to go in to harm's way for us. We can fight for ourselves."
