Netanyahu Turns 63


Sunday was Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's 63rd birthday on the secular calendar and the staff of the Prime Minister's Office threw a birthday party for him.

Netanyahu told those in attendance - including members of his family and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman - "I divide my time between the Prime Minister's Office and the family. It's not easy being the wife of a prime minister or children of the prime minister, and I want to thank them for their inner strength." He was also moved by the many birthday greeting from Israelis which he received on Facebook.
