Netanyahu to ‘Post': I have an obligation to give voice to Jewish concerns

The Israeli prime minister has a responsibility to “give voice to the concerns of the Jewish people,” even if not all Jews everywhere agree with him, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told The Jerusalem Post in an interview.

Netanyahu replied this week in writing to questions from the Post on the occasion of being selected to lead its annual list of the world’s most influential Jews. The roster, and the interview with Netanyahu, will be published in Friday’s Post.

In March, as the prime minister was boarding the plane to Washington for his controversial speech to the US Congress, Netanyahu said he was going as an emissary “of the entire Jewish people.”
