Amid continuing tensions with the White House and concern about diplomatic isolation, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu underlined during a speech Tuesday the importance of “bridge building” with countries both near and far.
“Build alliances,” he said toward the end of a lengthy, hour-long address at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya Conference. “Every state needs alliances.”
“Superpowers need alliances,” he continued. “A small state like Israel definitely needs alliances, definitely.”
