Netanyahu: Israel ‘not seeking to dominate anyone’

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel seeks peace with its neighbors, and “we’re not seeking to dominate anyone.” In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Netanyahu described Israel as “a vibrant democracy. Tremendously creative. Has wild entrepreneurs. They’re curing diseases around the world. Your cell phone probably has four or five Israeli IT applications inside it. It’s just changing the world.”

Netanyahu says Israel inspires its children to succeed, not to seek out conflict and war. “We don’t teach our children to say, ‘I want to be a doctor, I want to be a dentist, or I want to be a technologist and I want to fight the Arabs.'”
