Prime Minister Netanyahu met with members of Israeli Flying Aid and Council of Youth Movements in Israel who have joined together to help assist Syrian refugees.
In their meeting, he said:
"There is a line that separates light from darkness and this line is found - in the clearest possible manner - on the Golan Heights. One hundred meters from the border is a field hospital with IDF doctors and nurses in which Jews and non-Jews care for those who have been wounded and injured. Small children, some of them amputees, who have been injured come with their parents, some of whom have also been injured, and receive treatment in Israel.
They all say the same ting, 'We do not understand. We were always told that you are devils and here we see that you are human beings. You are helping us. You, our greatest enemies, are giving us the assistance that we would expect from our own people.' This is the true humanity of the State of Israel, of Isareli youth, and the citizens of Israel, and this is the truth. Everything else is propaganda. This is the truth in the great struggle between civilization and barbarism."
