Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, today at his Jerusalem residence, hosted Israeli Christian, Muslim and Druze community leaders in honor of the various holidays and the New Year.  The Prime Minister said: “This is the first time that dignitaries from the entire non-Jewish sector ( have been guests in this house.  This is a very important meeting for me and for the entire Israeli government, which is making an effort so that each of you will feel that you are an inseparable part of the State of Israel.  There is no more appropriate opportunity to give expression to this feeling than now, a short time after Hanukkah and Eid al-Adha and just before Christmas.  I wish everyone a joyous holiday season and a happy New Year.”
