Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during the weekly cabinet meeting, "State visionary, Benjamin Ze'ev Herzl, said something that has captured me, 'Do not rely on the help of foreigners, nor on benefactors. And do not expect stones to become soft because benefactors give humiliating donations.'"
Netanyahu noted that he was not familiar with this quotation, and concluded it: "A nation who wants to stand upright must rely on itself alone." The cabinet marked 150 years since the birth of Zionist visionary, Theodor Herzl. (Roni Sofer)
