Danny Rozen, the husband of Ahuva Tomer who died in the Carmel Fire last month, called Interior Minister Eli Yishai's attendance at the ceremony marking one month since the fire "the height of hypocrisy."

Rozen, who interrupted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech at the ceremony demanding Yishai leave the room, told reporters afterward: "Report after report, we see Eli Yishai being blamed, so it is not right for him to come here, to sit in the front row as a respected guest. I think Yishai coming to this ceremony is a slap in our face. The only thing that interest him is what happens in his 'halacha state'."
