Quotes

"When we finished climbing the mountain, we saw that the guide had abandoned us. We realized that we were alone and that was when all the chaos began" Idan said
"It was quite dramatic," he said. "I'd kept the phone on – I wasn't leading the service – when I fielded the call just before 11. I went out and it was quite aa few minutes before I came back. My wife was waiting to hear and I gave her the thumbs up, then I spoke to the church and there was a cheer."
"It was amazing," he said. "Loving their friends as they love themselves, while fighting for their lives. It is a rare thing. There were girls who took off their warm clothes to give the people coming down from the mountain while they stayed in their underwear. If it were a war, the Israel Defense Forces would have awarded all its honors. I was very impressed and I salute them."
