"The President's house is your house; it is the home of all citizens of Israel. The citizenship of the Arab residents of the State of Israel is not a goodwill gesture. It is the citizenship of individuals and of a society which is part and parcel of this land; this land is their homeland, the State of Israel is their home. I am happy that Arab community leaders, and citizens, see this house as an address to raise their concerns, and I hope that this cooperation will go from strength to strength."
