President Shimon Peres on Tuesday honored this year’s outstanding soldiers as part of Independence Day celebrations, calling them a “wonderful portrait of the Israeli people.”

“I look at you and see you carrying on your backs over two thousand years of pogroms and blood, of triumphs and achievements, of pain and joy, of tearful eyes and hopeful hearts,” Peres told the assembled soldiers at his residence, in a ceremony attended by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi. “And as one who was present on Israel’s first day of independence, and has lived its history ever since, I am proud to say a prayer of thanks.”
