Former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni called for equality at Saturday's memorial for the shootings at the "Bar Noar” LGBT center in Tel Aviv that left two dead and fifteen wounded on August 1, 2009.

"This is not just a memorial for the murdered, but a reminder to Israeli society," Livni said. "We are talking about the right to live in the state of Israeli with honor."

"Equality and justice are not superficial words, and they do not belong to the left. They should be everybody's," Livni continued, adding that equality was not only a democratic value, but a Jewish value.
