Israeli Ambassador: Israel Is Threatened by Dark Forces
On Monday, December 12, Ambassador of Israel to the United States Michael Herzog and Ms. Shirin Herzog hosted a Hanukkah celebration at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, D.C.
During the event, Ambassador Herzog addressed attendees, comparing Israel’s current struggle against Iran to the protracted war the Maccabees fought against the Seleucid Empire.
“The Jewish state of Israel is threatened by dark forces, first and foremost Iran and its proxies. We are trying not only to fight back and deter, but also to spread light through expanded normalization and cooperation with our partners in the region. We strongly believe that this is an important key to the stability and the wellbeing of the Middle East, indeed to its future.”
The celebration was attended by senior members of the U.S. administration, members of Congress, Jewish community leaders, members of the media and civil society leaders. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) joined as the guest of honor and gave remarks. (INN / VFI News)
