Netanyahu: Jewish Tradition of Inquiry Seeks to Make a Better Life for All People Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke Thursday in Italy at Israel’s exhibition at Expo Milan 2015: “I’m proud of everything that we’re doing. I think it has to do a lot with our culture. Our scholars for centuries studied the Talmud. They always believed that there wasn’t one answer. They always questioned. They always argued. There wasn’t a single set truth, and truth wasn’t achieved by repetition and memory. It was achieved by constant inquiry.” “And this tradition was translated in modern times by Jewish scientists and Israeli scientists into the fields of mathematics and physics and chemistry and in every field of life, medicine. And it is now being translated by Israeli entrepreneurs and technologists for all the things that can make a better life for all the people of the planet.” (Prime Minister’s Office via Daily Alert)
