Speaking for his first time in South Palm Beach County, Lerner presented an analysis of security challenges facing Israel, including “terrorist organizations with arms and military capabilities beyond those of some actual armies.” He explained Israel’s continual state of preparedness on all fronts through intelligence, ongoing maneuvers, operational access, secured borders and advanced technology, and attested to the continued strong US/Israel relationship.
