Question: When I spoke with you last year, I assumed that two major conflicts in the world were becoming more serious: the conflict between Russia and the West, and the conflict between the Shiite Muslims and the Sunnis. At the time, you emphasized that if we don’t begin to unite, all of these conflicts will sooner or later be turned against us and we will not be able to do anything about that.
Can we say that in a certain sense, the UN members have united and voted against us?
Answer: In a certain sense, yes. After all, they voted against Israel unanimously. How it is all arranged is interesting, but it is not important. Everyone realizes that the UN is like a puppet that can be twisted as they wish.
Question: Will the ramifications of this resolution impact our lives in Israel?
Answer: There will be no ramifications. We shouldn’t pay any attention to it. We don’t depend on the nations of the world. It is actually they who depend on us. If we begin to seriously unite, they will do everything in their power to get closer to us.
