The Prime Minister of Israel added 2 new photos.31 mins ·  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara visited the British Library in London last night, where they were briefed on the library in general and two items in particular – the original Balfour Declaration, in which UK Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour declared that Britain would support the establishment of a national home for the Jewish People in the Land of Israel, and a book edited by the Prime Minister's father, the late Professor Ben-Zion Netanyahu. The latter was a volume of Herzl's writings that the Prime Minister's father had edited in 1937 when he was only 27. The Prime Minister said that Herzl was a visionary and great leader and noted the link between him and the Balfour Declaration. The Netanyahus also viewed a Passover haggadah, Tanakh, an edition of the Talmud (Tractate Bava Kama) and other volumes. Photos: Avi Ohayon, GPO 364 Likes29 Comments38 Shares

The Middle East is disintegrating under the twin forces of militant Islam: The militant Sunnis led by ISIS and the militant Shiites led by Iran. And I believe that we can cooperate in practical ways to roll back the tide of militant Islam both in the Middle East and in Africa altogether. Secondly, and no less important, peace. I want to say here in 10 Downing Street, and reaffirm again that I am ready to resume direct negotiations with the Palestinians with no conditions whatsoever to enter negotiations, and I'm willing to do so immediately. The third point is technology – the future belongs to those who innovate. Britain and Israel are two great centers of technology. Israel …
