Before he boarded the flight on Monday to represent Israel at the memorial for former South African president Nelson Mandela, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said he hoped "the leaders in our region will abandon terror like Mandela and will choose dialogue as a way to live in peace with Israel."

Edelstein said that Mandela was a freedom fighter but that "more than that he was a man that knew that you do not correct an injustice with another injustice and violence with more violence."

He added that the State of Israel will remember Mandela as a man who "abandoned the path of violence in his just struggle for equality between black and white people."
