Israel National News reported on Netanyahu’s victory speech.
“This is a night of a huge victory for the Likud. I remember our first victory in 1996 was historic, but this time is even sweeter because it is a victory against all odds,” he said.
“Our rivals said – the Netanyahu era is over, but together we turned it around, we made lemonade out of lemons,” the Prime Minister continued.
“I talked about what I want to achieve in the coming years – applying sovereignty in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley, an historic defense alliance with the US, establishing peace relations with leading Arab states, leading huge industry and economic reforms – we will do all that,” he added.
“We fostered relationships that we did not have with world leaders. It also includes many more leaders that you can imagine in the Arab and Muslim world. When I say we will reach peace agreements with other Arab states, I am not just saying that. We have seen all the tribes of Israel go back to the Likud – our brothers and sisters who are members of the Ethiopian community, and our brothers from the Commonwealth of Independent States. We are not satisfied with what we brought, throughout the campaign I talked about what we intend to achieve in the years to come,” Netanyahu continued.
