Speaking at an iftar meal for the families of martyrs and wounded veterans, our President said:
“You are the most worthy of all the guests who have come here to date. You give your most valued possessions to this country.

We are at your command.”

Let us show respect to the families of martyrs. Let us ensure that our nations supports them with all its might. What a great honor. The mothers and fathers of martyrs should be given their own medals. We must embrace them wherever we see them. Everyone should invite them into their homes …
