Arab Members of Knesset did not attend the Yitzhak Rabin memorial ceremony at the Knesset Thursday evening, drawing criticism from Kadima, Labor, and Likud party heads. "Their absence from the ceremony is unacceptable," a joint statement written by Kadima, Labor, and Likud read. "It harms those that they represent and cheapens the ceremony, the content of which is a positive expression of democracy in Israel."
