An excerpt from Prime Minister Olmert’s exceptional speech today, The Knesset, July 17, 2006:
An extract from Prophet Jeremiah:
“Thus said Hashem: a voice is heard on high, wailing, bitter weeping, Rachel weeps for her children; she refuses to be consoled for her children, for they are gone.
Thus said Hashem: restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears; for there is reward for your accomplishment – the word of Hashem – and they will return from the enemy’s land.
There is hope for your future – the word of Hashem;
And your children will return to their land”. We will triumph!
