Briefings with Israel’s Minister of Defense and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs

Other insightful briefings in which I participated with The Israel Bond delegation was with Israel’s Minister of Defense, Moshe Ya’alon, who spoke passionately about the tremendous sacrifices that were made by Israeli soldiers during the Operation Protective Edge. He informed us that this military campaign was Israel’s largest since the 1982 Lebanon War and he discussed the tremendous strain that was imposed on all of Israel’s citizens. He, too, thanked the Israel Bond organization for its continued support and efforts during this most challenging time.

We also were briefed by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tzachi Hanegbi, who spoke to our delegation at a beautiful outdoor dinner at the Hebrew Union College next door to the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs briefed us on the current situation with Hezbollah in Lebanon as well as the current state of affairs with Hamas in Gaza. He also spoke of the heroic efforts on the part of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in the latest military campaign in Gaza, and thanked the United States for all of our support, emotionally, financially, and physically through the supplying of Iron Dome anti-missile defense system.
