All quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu on Israel

I want to tell you, citizens of Israel, I don't pay attention to the background noises, I continue in my work on behalf of you. Shabbat shalom.feedback

We met with all the authorities – ministries of defence, housing and finance – in order to renew the work to establish the community of Amichai for the evacuees of Amona. They deserve a home, as soon as possible. There is no government that does more for the settlements than the government that I lead.feedback

I will relay my recommendation for a pardon to the relevant parties when the matter comes up for meaningful discussion.feedback

The Al-Jazeera network continues to incite violence around the Temple Mount. I have appealed several times to law enforcement authorities demanding the closure of the Al-Jazeera Jerusalem office. If this does not happen because of legal interpretation, I will work to legislate the required laws in order to remove Al-Jazeera from Israel.feedback

I assured the security guard that we will see to bringing him back to Israel; we have experience in this. I told both of them (the guard and Israel's ambassador to Jordan, Einat Shalin) that we are holding ongoing contacts with security and government officials in Amman, on all levels, in order to bring the incident to a close as quickly as possible.feedback

Yosef, Chaya and Elad were murdered by a beast incited by Jew-hatred. The home of the loathsome terrorist will be demolished as soon as possible.feedback

The pain is deep but our roots in the land are no less deep. Terror will never defeat us. Terror will never defeat us. We will continue to strengthen our state; we will continue to build up our land.feedback

We are in Jerusalem, but our hearts are with the Salomon family in Modi'in. For a hundred years now, we've been dealing with this murderous terror – and overcoming it. The pain runs deep, but our roots in this land run just as deep. Terror will never defeat us. Terror will never triumph over us. We will continue to strengthen our country and build our land.feedback

We are managing this with level-headedly, determinedly and responsibly.feedback

Since the start of the events, I have held a series of assessments with security elements including those in the field. We are receiving from them an up-to-date picture of the situation, as well as recommendations for action, and we will decide accordingly. We are conducting this calmly, determinedly and responsibly and thus we will continue to act in order to maintain security.feedback

This was an act of terror perpetrated by a human animal, infused with abhorrent hatred.feedback

I think its actually crazy. There is no logic here. Europe is undermining its security by undermining Israel. Europe is undermining its progress by undermining the connection with Israeli innovation because of a crazy attempt to create conditions [for peace with Palestine].feedback

The onslaught of the media on the prime minister is of unprecedented proportions. You cannot claim innocence. False tales have been concocted and they are sinking into the abyss.feedback

Matters will be cleared up and I believe the deal will go ahead.feedback

The European Union is the only association of countries in the world that conditions the relations with Israel – that produces technology and every area – on political conditions. The only ones! Nobody does it. It's crazy. It's actually crazy, It's not about my interest. I'm talking about Europe's interest. We have a special relationship with China. And they don't care. They don't care about the political issues.feedback

It's crazy, it's absolutely crazy. Europe has to decide whether it wants to live and thrive or if it wants to shrivel and disappear. Don't undermine that one Western country that defends European values and European interests and prevents another mass migration to Europe. If you, as the Visegrad group, can begin to advance this conception, I think this would be... beneficial to you but I think it would actually be beneficial to all of Europe. We're part of European civilisation. You look at the Middle East - Europe stops in Israel. That's it.feedback

They would like to end this as quietly as possible. We expect everyone to help restore calm. We should look at the facts and the truth - the installation of metal detectors does not constitute any change in the status quo. It is only meant to prevent a repeat of an attack with weapons.feedback

We are part of the European culture. Europe ends in Israel. East of Israel, there is no more Europe. We have no greater friends than the Christians who support Israel around the world.feedback

We blocked the border not only in Egypt but in the Golan Heights. We built the wall because there was a problem with ISIS [Islamic State/IS] and Iran trying to build a terror front there. I told [Russian President] Putin, when we see them [Iran/IS] transferring weapons to Hezbollah, we will hurt them. We did it dozens of times. It's not about my interest. I'm talking about Europe's interest.feedback

There is an anomaly, we are often criticized by Western Europe, often more than any other place in the world. Israel is a bastion of European and western values in the heart of a very dark place. It's time to have a re-assessment in Europe about the relationship with Israel.feedback

Macron said there is a new anti-Semitism that is expressed in anti-Zionism, that is delegitimizing the one and only Jewish state. In many ways, Hungary is at the forefront of the states that are opposed to this anti-Jewish policy and I welcome it and I express the appreciation of my government and the people, many people in Israel for this.feedback

I'd like a parallel process with the Arab countries, at the same time as the process with the Palestinians. I am against. It is not a good initiative.feedback

It will be difficult to push forward quickly with the American initiative. I'm not sure that Abu Mazen (Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas) can deliver on his commitments, for internal political reasons.feedback

I also want to thank you prime minister for standing up for Israel in international forums. You have done that time and time again, we appreciate this stance not only because it is standing with Israel, but its also standing with the truth.feedback

Metal detectors will be stationed at the entrance gates to Temple Mount and cameras covering activity on the mount will be installed outside it.feedback

India and Israel are walking hand in hand into the future as partners. From start-ups to space, communications to cybernetics, Israel's technological capabilities are merging with India's.feedback

My friend, we have been waiting for you for a long time. Welcome to Israel! We can do even better together.feedback

I thought that it had to change because there's a simple fact about Cyprus, Greece and Israel that brings us very close together: We're all democracies, real democracies. And when you look in the present in our region, especially looking eastward and some other directions as well, that's not a very common commodity.feedback

I told her that the time had come for the United Nations to reconsider the continued existence of UNRWA [the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine]. In UNRWA's institutions, there is a great deal of incitement against Israel.feedback

The majority of the people of Israel, unlike the media, they love us so we tell them how you are great and they love you.feedback

NBC's Lester Holt is in Israel to report on Trump's trip there.feedback

Mr. President, Israel also shares the commitment to peace that you expressed yesterday. We've already made peace with Egypt and with Jordan, and Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians. The peace we seek is a genuine and durable one, in which the Jewish state is recognized, security remains in Israel's hands and the conflict ends once and for all. Mr. President, you just flew from Riyadh to Tel Aviv. I hope that one day an Israeli prime minister will be able to fly from Tel Aviv to Riyadh.feedback

Your visit here is truly historic. Never before has a first foreign trip of a US president included Israel. Thank you for this powerful expression of your friendship to Israel. Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians. I hope one day an Israeli Prime Minister will be able to fly from Tel Aviv to Riyadh.feedback

Tonight, I say to the whole world and in the clearest way possible, Jerusalem was and will always be the capital of Israel. The Temple Mount and the Western Wall will always remain under Israeli sovereignty.feedback

It's President Trump's first visit outside the United States [as president] and we're honored that he has chosen to come to the State of Israel and to Jerusalem, Israel's capital. Mr. President, we look forward to your visit. The citizens of Israel will receive you with open arms. I will discuss with President Trump ways to strengthen our primary and steadfast ties with the United States. We will improve our security ties, that we are strengthening on a daily basis. We will also discuss ways to advance the peace.feedback

Mr. President, we look forward to your visit. The citizens of Israel will receive you with open arms. I will discuss with President Trump ways to strengthen even further the primary and strongest alliance with the US. We will strengthen security ties, which are strengthening daily.feedback

Israel's position has been stated many times to the U.S. government and to the world. Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem will not only not harm the peace process, it will advance it by correcting a historical wrong and by shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.feedback

There is no other people in the world for whom Jerusalem is as holy and important as for the Jewish people, even though a meeting will take place at UNESCO today that will try to deny this historical truth.feedback

I hope Gabriel meets me on his next trip to Israel rather than a radical fringe group that undermines Israel's security. Foreign diplomats are welcome to meet with civil society activists and members of the opposition and anyone else they'd like. But my red line is that I will not meet diplomats who come to Israel and lend legitimacy to fringe radical groups that falsely accuse our soldiers of war crimes and undermine Israeli security. It was a particularly insensitive time to seek a meeting like this.feedback

Israel is committed to working with President Trump to promote peace with the Palestinians and with all our enemies. I believe the dangers facing Israel and many of our neighbors introduce a special opportunity to build a new, safer, more peaceful future.feedback

The purchase dramatically proves that the vision we are leading is coming true. Israel is turning into a global technology center.feedback

The purchase dramatically proves that the vision we are leading is coming true. Israel is turning into a global technology center, not just in cyber but also in the automotive industry.feedback

I made it clear that regarding Syria, while Israel is not opposed that there should be an agreement there, we strongly oppose the possibility that Iran and its proxies will be left with a military presence in Syria under such an agreement.feedback

We discussed at length the matter of Iran, its objectives and intentions in Syria, and I clarified that there cannot be a peace deal in Syria when Iran is there and declares its intention to destroy Israel. There cannot be peace when they continue the war and therefore they have to be removed.feedback

I'd like to talk to you about how we can ensure that Iran's aggression does not go unanswered. Iran seeks to annihilate Israel, it seeks to conquer the Middle East, it threatens Europe, it threatens the West, it threatens the world. And it offers provocation after provocation. That's why I welcome President Trump's assistance of new sanctions against Iran. I think other nations should follow suit, certainly responsible nations.feedback

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and it is proper that not only should the American embassy be here, but all embassies should come here, and I believe that over time most of them will indeed come here, to Jerusalem. I would like to note again that our fundamental alliance is with the United States. There is no substitute for this alliance. Our relations are tight and getting tighter and I would like to take this opportunity to make it unequivocally clear that our position has always been, and will always be, that the U.S. embassy needs to be here, in Jerusalem.feedback

The most important thing to understand is that we are under attack by a new kind of lone terrorist who decides to do something in an instant. The guard, the officers and the soldiers who acted quickly yesterday thwarted greater disaster.feedback

We are under a new kind of attack, the lone attacker that gets inspiration and decides in a moment to act.feedback

We know the identity of the attacker and according to all the signs he is a supporter of the Islamic State. I have just come from a meeting with the defense minister, the chief of staff, the head of the Shin Bet and others about steps we need to take. We know that these are a series of attacks and there definitely could be a link between them, from France to Berlin, and now Jerusalem.feedback

We know the identity of the terrorist. All signs are indicating he is a supporter of the Islamic State [of Iraq and the Levant group].feedback

We are here after a brutal and tragic terror attack where four soldiers were murdered, three female soldiers and a male soldier. We know the identity of the attacker, according to all the signs he was a supporter of the Islamic State. We have blockaded Jabel Mukaber, the neighbourhood he came from.feedback

We know the identity of the attacker, according to all the signs he is a supporter of Islamic State. We have sealed off Jabel Mukabar, the neighbourhood from where he came, and we are carrying out other actions which I will not detail.feedback

Wait with the celebrations, don't rush. I've said it before and I'll say it once again: there will be nothing because there is nothing.feedback

There are ways, various ways of undoing it. I think what options we have are much more than you think. Many more. .. I have about five things in my mind. I'd like to talk to the president (about it).feedback

Any fire that's caused by arson, and by incitement to arson – is terrorism for all intent and purposes, and we will deal with it accordingly. This is my directive to the security forces, police, the GSS, and the IDF: we will repay every act of lawlessness. Anyone who will try or has tried to burn down parts of the State of Israel will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.feedback

The theater of the absurd continues, and I have decided to summon to Israel for consultations our ambassador to UNESCO. We will decide what do, what our next steps vis-à-vis the organization will be.feedback

The theatre of the absurd at UNESCO continues and today the organisation adopted another delusional decision which says that the people of Israel have no connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.feedback

Jerusalem "represented to him our ability to rise from the pit and reach new heights. The memory of this man, who taught us what memory is, will be enshrined in our hearts and in the heart of humanity forever.feedback

We will find who prepared this explosive device. We will discover who carried it out. We will also get to those behind them. We will settle the score with these terrorists.feedback

We welcome increased coordination between the Israeli authorities and the Jordanian Waqf, including to ensure that visitors and worshippers demonstrate restraint and respect for the sanctity of the area.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas said the other day, I welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem.' Are these the words of a moderate? Who glorifies these killings? He has not condemned a single one of the thirty terrorist attacks on Israelis over the last month.feedback

A crowd which forms at an attack site should evacuate the area and let the emergency services do their job. We've laws in this country.No one should take the law into his own hands. That's the first rule. Secondly, what we see here is a combination of extremist Islam and the Internet. It's Osama bin Laden meets Mark Zuckerberg.feedback

They repeat over and over again their lies that we intend to destroy al-Aqsa or to change the status quo here. This is an absolute lie. It is the exact opposite. We are committed to maintaining the status quo at Temple Mount.feedback

The terror of suicide bombers did not vanquish us, and the terror of knives will not beat us.feedback

We will prove that terror doesn't pay and we will overcome it.feedback

We are in the midst of a wave of terror. There is no magic solution and the actions we are taking will not yield instant results, but with methodical determination we will prove that terror does not pay and we will defeat it.feedback

Civilians are at the forefront of the war against terrorism and must also be on maximum alert. I would like to praise the level-headedness that Israel's citizens have shown both in recent days and today.feedback

I convened the heads of Israel's security forces and I have ordered a series of additional steps in order to prevent terror and to deter and punish the perpetrators.feedback

Stones and firebombs are deadly weapons; they kill and have killed. Therefore, in recent days we have changed the open-fire orders for police in Jerusalem.feedback

Shira was a brave girl. She was murdered by a vile person because she supported the simple notion that everyone has the right to live their lives respectfully and with security. The despicable murderer who stabbed Shira and five others tried to undermine this fundamental value, the basic values on which our society is built – social equality and individual rights that we sanctify.feedback

Israel's absolute commitment is to fight this evil, to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. We have to calm spirits and recommit ourselves to our joint battle against terrorism and extremism.feedback

The connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem can not be denied. The Jewish people were building Jerusalem 3,000 years ago and the Jewish people are building Jerusalem today. Jerusalem is not a settlement – it is our capital.feedback

There has not been a government in Israel in the last 40 years that has limited building in Jerusalem. The construction of these neighbourhoods did not harms the Arabs of East Jerusalem in any way and did not come at their expense.feedback

Security measures that guarantee effective demilitarisation.feedback

We will respond with a heavy hand to the brutal murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by lowly murderers.feedback

I call upon all leaders of the civilised world. I want to see a profound indignation, without conciliation against these acts, these assassinations of Israelis, of Jews. Don't make distinctions in between blood and blood.feedback

We are going to build in Jerusalem for all its residents, this is something that has been done by all previous governments and this is something that my government will continue to do.feedback

The suspension will not affect the construction already underway. It will not include the schools, the kindergartens, the synagogues and the public buildings necessary for the continuation of normal life over the period of the suspension.feedback

Today we are building and we will continue building in Jerusalem and anywhere which is on Israel's strategic map. The Palestinian Authority's unilateral step at the UN General Assembly constitutes a blunt violation of the agreements that have been signed with the state of Israel. Therefore, the state of Israel rejects the General Assembly's resolution.feedback

We are acting with experience, wisdom and responsibility, preparing for what may come.feedback

We are making great efforts to restore peace and quiet to Jerusalem. Of course we will not tolerate attacks from any side and we will not tolerate setting fire to the Jewish-Arab school as we saw last night.feedback

I believe that it's time for the rest of the world to wake up. The great challenges that we face, the great danger to the world, is not from Jews building in our ancestral capital in Jerusalem, it's from nuclear weapons in Iran, those weapons that are built in Iran.feedback

It's a tiny country and we don't have the time or the privileges to wait and check because they could be above Tel Aviv or above Jerusalem in literally less than minutes. That's why we have this procedure. Apparently a Syrian fighter aircraft penetrated our air space. We shot it down.feedback

Our policy on Jerusalem is the same policy followed by all Israeli governments over the past 42 years, and it has not changed. As far as we are concerned, building in Jerusalem is the same as building in Tel Aviv. These are things that we have made clear to the U.S. administration.feedback

Whoever was involved in the kidnapping and the murder will bear the consequences. We will neither rest nor slow down until we reach the last of them and it does not matter where they will try to hide.feedback

We have Palestinian workers working in Israel, some legally and some illegally, and they [presumably Israel's opponents] exploit that to put in terrorists of Hamas, terrorists that unfortunately are incited by the Palestinian Authority, by the Palestinian president. I think we'll do whatever we can to prevent this danger.feedback

The ramming in Jerusalem is a direct result of the incitement by Abu Mazen [Abbas] and his partners in Hamas. We are in a continuous battle over Jerusalem, which I have no doubt we will win.feedback
