"Here on the first night of Hanukah, I stand next to the Maccabees of our times, IDF soldiers and wounded IDF heroes.
I salute you and say to you clearly: The light will dispel the darkness.
The spirit of the Maccabees will overcome.Israel is a tiny democratic nation, the size of New Jersey, surrounded by hostile nations and terror organizations, but by continuing to shine a light on the desire for true peace and security for a people that were decimated by the Holocaust, we can dispel the darkness of thousands of years of hate and discrimination.
I believe in my deepest heart of hearts that most people in the world, and especially in the shining light of nations of America and Israel, are good and decent.
And together, we can overcome the darkness of bigotry, intolerance, and hatred with the light of good and righteousness in this world.
Faith, caring, and love can overcome. ;-)
