In a moment rich with national pride and human resilience, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with former hostage Shlomi Ziv on Wednesday.

“We met on the day you were freed. You look great. I must tell you,” Netanyahu told Shlomi Ziv and his family at his office in Jerusalem. “There is light radiating from your face. I simply enjoy seeing this great joy.”

Sara Netanyahu echoed the same sentiment as her husband by acknowledging the joy Israel felt when news broke that Ziv and three other hostages were saved.

“What a joy it is to see your mother. This is simply a dream come true,” she said. “The story of your rescue operation. I do not think that there is any other army in the world that would have dared and also acted.”

Beyond meeting Ziv with his relieved wife Miran, mother Roseta, and sisters Revital and Adi, Israel’s prime minister crystallized the indomitable spirit powering the Jewish State’s heroism against Iranian-backed terrorist forces bent on its destruction.

As the freed Shlomi Ziv rejoins society’s warm embrace, his radiant face has become an indelible symbol of Jewish hope.

Am Yisrael Chai!
