Quote(s) of the Day

“Welcome home!  This is a happy moment in the history of the State of Israel, a moment that we have waited for a long time. Today, the entire country is united in its joy over your coming home. I am happy that you are returning to your loving family, to your brothers, to your wife and to your children, who have met with me many times and who spared neither time nor effort in working towards your release.

 

Immediately after I was elected, I met with your family and I promised them that during my tenure as Prime Minister, we would release you. Since then, I have worked tirelessly in all my meetings with Egyptians and others, in order to do so, and as I promised your family, I delivered. I expect to see you soon and I say again, welcome home.”

– Israel PM Ariel Sharon, after securing the release of Israeli Druze Azzam Azzam in a prisoner swap deal with Egypt

“Mr. Prime Minister, thank you very much, I love you very much and I don’t know how to express this.  This is only thanks to you.  I don’t have the words to thank you for your determination.  I told my brothers that if I’m not released while Arik Sharon is Prime Minister, I would never be released. I am fortunate and proud to have been born in Israel.”

– Azzam Azzam
