President Shimon Peres spoke at a solidarity rally at Tel Aviv's Rabin Square on Saturday night, held in memory of two people killed in last week's shooting attack at a gay youth club in the city. "We are a nation which won't be murdered," the president told the crowd of some 20,000 people. "Those shots… hurt us all, as Jews and as Israelis." "God created man in his own image," the president continued, "and all citizens have equal rights. All men are born equal, and every citizen has the right to be who he is… to be free and proud." "To freedom we were born, and in freedom we will live," Peres said.
