• For thousands of years, we Jews have been nourished and sustained by a yearning for our historic land. I, like many others, was raised with a deep conviction that the day would never come when we would have to relinquish parts of the land of our forefathers. I believed and to this day still believe in our people's eternal and historic right to this entire land.

    Ehud Olmert's address to the Congress in Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C., May 24, 2006.
