MR. SALMAN HENO: Shalom LeKulam (Peace to everyone) Salamun alaikum. Honorable Mr. Oktar, Deputy Minister, members of the delegation. I am Salman Heno. Representative of the Druze in the Galilee in Israel. We participated in this delegation to strengthen the ties between Turkey and Israel. Together with the Deputy Minister to try and bring things back the way they were, that Turkey should return to its good position in the Middle East, in the whole process, in order to live in peace in the region and in the world. And the good nature of Sheikh Adnan that strengthened our feeling to come here, to see him up close, and it was something special that when we arrived here everything we had heard was indeed true, and even more so. What the Sheikh [Adnan] does and the things he gives over to the nation, this is indeed marvelous, someone who deals in spirituality. This is more important than everyone else. I thank Mr. Adnan and his entire team, and wish success to everyone. I add my request to that of the Deputy Minister that Mr. Adnan should work in the region and also work to release Gilad Shalit.
