“Today we mark 40 years to the historic visit of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in Jerusalem and Israel. President Sadat took a bold step, he came to the Knesset; he came to Israel. He was welcomed by the entire nation. Since then the peace with Egypt has survived ups and downs and now Egypt and Israel are on the same side fighting extremist Islamic terror.”
