David Ben Gurion : ---- " If you believe in ISRAEL, you can't call yourself - ATHEIST "!... "In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles" ... Ada,this one is for you!... "The knowledge of how to FEAR what ought to be feared and how not to FEAR what ought not to be feared is called - COURAGE"... "Anyone who believes you can't change HISTORY has never tried to write his MEMORIES"... "I don't know what the people WANT ! All I know is what they NEED"... " Well done, now give it back to them." ( Spoken to Louis Nir in June 1967, after his unit captured Hebron in the Six-Day War )... "UM - SHMUM" ( The UN - Bla Bla Bla ! ) ... "If an expert says it can't be done, get another expert"...

Saha ya Shanan! Sahtein!

A new MK, Shakib Shanan, was sworn in from the Knesset podium and began to serve as the (5th! Druz) Knesset member on behalf of the "Independence" faction. 

In his Maiden speech in the plenum, the new MK thanked the Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Defense for appointing Matan Vilnai as Israel's ambassador to China... so he could enter the Knesset.
( The Druz are funny people...)
Shinan then added "I am a proud Israeli and Druz."
Dozens of notables Druz  & dignitaries were present on the gallery and greeted the new Druz MK with applause.
The Druz community in Israel is about 150,000 people, 1.7% of the total Israeli population (8% - of the Arabs). The 5th Druz MK sworn in today, raises their representation in the Knesset to 4% (+) of the house member... Nice!
Saha ya Shanan! Sahtein!
