"Mazel Tov Dear Shimon, May You Always Go on"


PM Netanyahu spoke in honor of President Peres' 90th birthday Tuesday night in the Jerusalem Conference Center, "I came  to know you some 37 years ago when you, as Defense Minister ordered the bold and heroic Entebbe rescue. Your brave decision uplifted the honor of Israel worldwide, and you continue to do so to this very day in your constant, determined quest for regional peace and security. Why bother wishing you only 120 years? Hey, Shimon, just go on till 150, or 200, or as long as you please, we sure will be delighted," cheered the PM.
