Following is an excerpt from remarks Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made, today (Wednesday, 24 May 2017), at Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem, at the state memorial ceremony marking 50 years since the Six Day War: 

 

"We have just finished the visit of US President Donald Trump, the president of our greatest ally. The US has promised to maintain Israel's qualitative advantage in the Middle East. Three days ago, the US added another $75 million to the aid package for the missile defense program. While we very much appreciate the assistance and support, I would like to reiterate: History has proven that Israel's security depends on our readiness and our ability to defend ourselves by ourselves against any threat."​​
