Herzog at Yad Vashem: Israel stands ‘shoulder to shoulder’ with Diaspora Jews

Israel stands “shoulder to shoulder” with Jews across the Diaspora, who are currently being subjected to intense antisemitism, President Isaac Herzog declares at Yad Vashem.

“As Iran and its terrorist proxies attack us, the State of Israel must continue to develop the capabilities to defend itself against any threat and attack; with a strong and advanced defense force, and diplomatic alliances – global and regional. Integration that will ensure us a proven qualitative advantage, and will fortify our existence as a Jewish and democratic state,” he states at the official state Yom Hashoah memorial ceremony at Yad Vashem.

“The foundation of defense also pertains, of course, to our brothers and sisters in Jewish communities around the world, who are currently under threat and attack – in communities and campuses. I address them from here – from our eternal capital, and say: We stand with you shoulder to shoulder against the onslaught of antisemitism, terrorism, and hatred directed at you in recent days. The State of Israel is with you. We are all with you.”
