Almagor hosting Remembrance Day ceremony to protest Lapid

April 22, 2012 17:38

The Almagor Terror Victims Association plans to hold an alternative Remembrance Day ceremony on Tuesday night, in protest of the annual Tel Aviv Municipality ceremony, hosted by television personality turned politician Yair Lapid.

Almagor has called for the public not to attend the municipal ceremony, and go to their event in front of the Tel Aviv Art Muesum.

“We are angry and do not understand how, despite the requests of families of victims of terror not to give a platform to politicians on Remembrance Day. Yair Lapid took advantage of a loophole that allows him to get into every home in the country,” the organization stated.

According to Almagor, Lapid is using victims of terror and those killed in battle for his own political gain, and should not be allowed to host a government-funded ceremony.
