Vilnai: Israel must be prepared for a nearing confrontation with its enemies

Matan Vilnai, Israel's Minister for Home Front Defense, made the following remarks at a Memorial Day service in Be'er Sheva this evening (my translation from Arutz Sheva):
In the face of vast transitions and political instability taking hold of our region, it is only our fortitude and willingness to sacrifice that which is most precious to us that enables the continued existence of the State of Israel. Throughout the years, we have extended a hand of peace to our neighbors, but in most cases we returned empty-handed. We must try to pursue the path of peace, but at the same time we must be prepared for an nearing confrontation with our enemies.
May we soon see the day when Israel can dwell in peace among the nations.
