The state of Israel will not be tried by its riches, army, or techniques, but by its moral image and human values.
"History is made, not written."
"It was the bravery of the Jews that created the State of Israel and not a UN Resolution."
"Should I be asked to sum up all the Jewish history in a few words, I would say it in three words — quality versus quantity"
A country is not given. It is conquered.
