Reagan Quote on Israel


"Israel exists; it has a right to exist in peace behind secure and defensible borders; and it has a right to demand of its neighbors that they recognize those facts.

I have personally followed and supported Israel's heroic struggle for survival, ever since the founding of the State of Israel 34 years ago.

In the pre-1967 borders Israel was barely 10 miles wide at its narrowest point. The bulk of Israel's population lived within artillery range of hostile Arab armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again."

Ronald Reagan, September 1, 1982

Hi Karen, my son chose the six day war as the topic of his social studies project last term.I helped him with some of the research and was intrigued by the information I read about Israel.

Excellent post. You have to admire a president who is not afraid to take a stand and state his opinion. God's chosen have often had a difficult time in life.
