"I am happy that Schalit is home, happy for him and for his family," said former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, in his first reaction to IDF soldier Gilad Schalit's return from Hamas captivity.

Olmert was prime minister when Schalit was captured, and during his term was involved in efforts for Gilad's release.
