"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind.

Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." -- Thomas Jefferson

Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen criticized the address of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to the UN Security Council demanding to discuss a humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
