Recently, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised that not only will Israel successfully land on the moon in the future, but a Bible will be present when this happens.
Last week, at the International Bible Quiz for Youth, the prime minister explained that the country would be able to make it to the moon because of their “daring spirit,” which comes from their foundation in the Bible.
“We [will land on the moon] through initiative, determination and daring—given to us by our spirit,” Netanyahu said according to the Times of Israel. “And our spirit comes from the Bible. That’s not just words. That spirit comes from the Bible, because there’s no meaning to the enormous journey we have made to return to our land, to our birthplace, if we had not carried with us our faith, our tradition and our yearning for the homeland.”
