Netanyahu: How Good it is that You've Come Home Gil'ad


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took some time, during a speech on the 100th anniversary of the Hadassah Medical Organization, to mark the first anniversary of the return of former soldier Gil'ad Shalit from captivity at the hands of Hamas. Using the title of a song by Arik Einstein, Netanyahu said, "How good it is that you've come home, Gil'ad.

The prime minister added, "On this day our enemies make death and terror holy. We will continue to struggle against them and sanctify life."
