I helgen arrangerade Vänskapsförbundet Sverige-Israel rikskonferens i Örebro. Från ambassaden var naturligtvis ambassadör Ilan-Ben Dov på plats:
”This weekend, the national conference of the Sweden-Israel Friendship Association took place in the city of Örebro. The conference was headed by the chairman of the association, member of the European Parliament Lars Adaktusson. As a special guest from Israel we had member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, Amir Ohana, who arrived from Jerusalem.
It was, for me, a great opportunity to meet hundreds of excellent and dedicated people, who devote their time and efforts for the friendship between Sweden and Israel.
Once again, I clearly saw that among the Swedish people, the level of support for Israel is much higher than what is being reflected in the media and the political system. I met so many people full of enthusiasm and dedication for the state of Israel.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all and especially the chairman, MEP Lars Adaktusson – a true friend of Israel that is wholeheartedly committed to the friendship between the Swedish people and the state of Israel.”
