May 16, Tel Aviv: Israel has responded forcefully to these attacks and will continue to respond forcefully until the security of the people is reinstated and restored.



It has been five days since Hamas brazenly fired rockets at Jerusalem and other Israeli cities in a totally unprovoked attack.


This past week, millions of Israelis were forced into bomb shelters as missiles rained down on the cities. Several Israelis have been killed. Many more have been wounded. You know and I know, no country would tolerate this. Israel will not tolerate this.
We’ve eliminated dozens of Hamas terrorists and taken out hundreds of terrorist sites, including missile launchers and buildings that Hamas used to plan and perpetrate these attacks.

Two nights ago, Israel also seriously degraded the terror infrastructure of Hamas. Israel knocked out part of the vast subterranean tunnel network that Hamas uses to attack Israel.


Benjamin wants to remind the world that Hamas is committing a double war crime in firing on our cities. They’re targeting the civilians and hiding behind Palestinian civilians, effectively using them as human shields.


“As always, Israel is doing everything possible to protect the civilians and keep Palestinian civilians out of harm’s way. Israel demonstrated this yet again when they warned civilians to vacate the building used by the Hamas terror intelligence. They vacated the premises before the target was destroyed and that’s why they don’t hear of casualties from these collapsing terror towers because Israel takes special care to avoid these civilian casualties, exactly the opposite of Hamas.


Defeating Hamas does not only serve Israel's interest, it serves the interests of all those who seek peace, stability and security in the Middle East.
I want to thank Israel’s many friends in the international community who have strongly backed Israel’s action in defending ourselves. I want to thank the President of the United States Joe Biden and I want to thank the many countries, including European countries, who flew the Israeli flag in solidarity on their government buildings.
No one should have any equivocation about the choice that is so clear here and I want to thank President Biden for his clear and unequivocal support. You cannot equate a democracy that values life with a terror organization that glorifies death.

Benjamin also wants to say a word about the violence that has seen in recent days within Israeli towns, from Lod to Bat Yam, from Akko to Haifa. The Jewish state will not tolerate pogroms against our citizens. Israel will not allow the Jewish citizens to be lynched or to live in fear of murderous Arab gangs. Israel will not tolerate the torching of synagogues and the torching of property.

At the same time, we will not allow Jews to take the law into their own hands and attack innocent Arabs, or lynch an innocent Arab; there was one such case, such effort. We will not allow these attacks on innocent Jews or Arabs alike. To tolerate this unacceptable vigilantism and violence is to pave the way to anarchy.
I am fully confident that Israel will be able to deal with these threats from without and these threats from within. I am confident in our army. I am confident in our police. And above all, I am confident in the resolve and determination of the people of Israel.

Israel is a Jewish and democratic state, where all the citizens, Jews, Arabs and everyone else, are equal before the law and will receive equal protection from those who enforce the law.
