Israel Bonds Special Briefing with Ambassador Mark Regev

In a May 19 Q&A session with Israel Bonds supporters from the U.S., Canada and UK, Ambassador Mark Regev, senior advisor to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said Hamas used unrest in Jerusalem “to stir up tensions and violence, and when they fired rockets, we had to act.” He rejected accusations of disproportionate use of force, noting, “The low (casualty) numbers are a testament to what we have done to protect our people.” He asked rhetorically, “How do you find a political solution when Hamas says Israel has no right to exist within any borders? The only solution is based on deterrence and strength.” Ambassador Regev paid tribute to Israel Bonds, telling his listeners, “You’re making a real difference.”
