PM Bennett: "I would like to thank the Health Minister, the Health Ministry Director General and everyone who is involved in the work."
Therefore, the third dose of the vaccine must be completed for all citizens. I call on all citizens age 12 and up to immediately get the third dose. Whoever has not yet been vaccinated at all must do so immediately. This is how we will protect health and livelihoods.
The third dose of the vaccine works. Two million Israelis have already been inoculated. Israel is the only country that has done this, successfully. There are already results: The increase in severe morbidity has begun to slow. However, the peak of the campaign is yet before us.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, on the expansion of the eligibility for the third dose of the vaccine: "As of now, the third dose of the vaccine is also available from age 12 and up. This is a privilege that no other country has.
PM Bennett: "Regarding Gaza, overnight the IDF attacked in Gaza in response to the sending of the balloons . As I have already said, we will act in Gaza according to our interests. As far as I am concerned, the address has been, and will be, Hamas."
PM Bennett: "I would like to thank President Biden for the very warm welcome and now we need to go home."
We also made progress on an issue that concerns many Israelis: The visa exemption for entry to the US. As you have heard, President Biden – for the first time – instructed that progress be made and that the matter be closed as quickly as possible.
We achieved all of the goals that we set for the visit and more. We have agreed with the Americans on a joint working strategy to block the Iranian race for nuclear weapons. We took a significant step in equipping and building the Israeli force.
PM Bennett: "The meeting was very warm and very productive. @POTUS @JoeBiden and I created a direct and personal connection between us that is based on trust.

PM Bennett: "Both of us seek to do good and need to be strong; both of us are a lighthouse in a very, very stormy world. Thank you, Mr. President. I look forward to working with you now and for many years forward."
Mr. President, today you and I – and you've been so generous with your time in these difficult days – you and I are going to write yet another chapter in the beautiful story of the friendship between our two nations, the USA and the Jewish and democratic State of Israel.
A month ago I made a very tough policy decision that Israel would pioneer the 3rd shot. I can report we've reached almost two million Israelis that received the booster shot. The bottom line is it's safe and it works. The good news, finally, is that the tide is turning in Israel.
You said we're also going to be talking about COVID and the Delta variant, which is wreaking havoc across the world. You were the first to call the pandemic the 'pandemic of the unvaccinated', and that could not be more true.
As I told you Mr. President Israel never has and never will ask America to send troops to defend it. That's our job. We will never outsource our security. It's our responsibility to take care of our fate. But we do thank you for the tools and backing you've been and are giving us
So we have developed a comprehensive strategy we're going to be talking about with 2 goals. The first is to stop Iran’s regional aggression and start rolling it back into the box. The second is to permanently keep Iran away from ever being able to break out to a nuclear weapon.
Iran is the world's number one exporter of terror, instability and human rights violations. As we sit here right now, the Iranians are spinning their centrifuges in Natanz and Fordow. We have got to stop them, and we both agree about that.
These very days illustrate what the world would look like if a radical Islamic regime acquired a nuclear weapon. That marriage would be a nuclear nightmare for the entire world.
We talked about it inside the room, and I was happy to hear your clear words that Iran will never be able to acquire nuclear weapons and that you emphasized that you will try the diplomatic route, but there are other options if that doesn't work.
PM Bennett: "That's why I want to thank you, Mr. President, for helping yet again to fortify Israel's strategic advantage. Obviously, the main issue we're going to be talking about today here is Iran's race to a nuclear weapon.
All of them want to kill us, kill Israelis. They all want to annihilate the Jewish state. And that's why Israel always has to be overwhelmingly stronger than any of our enemies, and indeed, of all our enemies combined.
PM Bennett: "We cannot lose sight for even one moment that we're in the toughest neighborhood in the world. We've got ISIS on our southern border. Hezbollah on our northern border, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Iranian militias that surround us.
Yet we all share the deep passion to work together to build a better future for Israel. And that's what Israel is about. We're out to be good, to do good. But in our region, doing good is not enough. Israel has to be strong in order to do good. Be strong so we can do good.
I come here from Jerusalem, our eternal capital, and I bring with me a new spirit, a spirit of goodwill, a spirit of hope, a spirit of decency and honesty, a spirit of unity and bipartisanship of folks who harbor very different political opinions, even opposing ones
When thousands of rockets were being shot on Israeli towns and cities, and that's when friendship is really tested. We trust in your support, Mr. President. And Israel knows that we have no better or more reliable ally in the world than the USA.
I also want to thank you for your words now and in our private meeting, which attest to your support of the State of Israel. But that's not new, it’s been decades and you've always stood up for us, especially during tough times like a few months ago
"American service members lost their lives while on a mission to save other people’s lives. That is the very definition of courage and sacrifice. May they rest in peace. Especially on this day I want to be crystal clear: Israel always stands together with the USA, unequivocally.

PM Bennett: "We will also talk about regional stability and climate change, which is an issue for all of us. I'm looking forward to having a very good relationship with you. I appreciate the time."
This is the same spirit that I want to bring to our relationship of cooperation, of goodwill, of friendship. We're going to be talking about a bunch of issues, primarily how do we fend off and curtail Iran's pursuit to dominate the region and its race to a nuclear weapon.
I bring from Israel a new spirit, a spirit of folks who sometimes harbor different opinions but work together in cooperation, in good will, in a spirit of unity and we work hard to find common things that we do agree upon and move forward on it. It seems to be working.
From our inception and to this day, especially these days, you are always with us, you have our back and that matters a lot to us. I can assure you that you'll find no friend which is more reliable and appreciative than us.
PM Bennett to @SecBlinken: "I appreciate you taking the time in pretty hectic days here in the States. It means a lot. Israel has no stronger and more reliable ally than the United States of America.
