President Shimon Peres on Monday issued a call to the nation to unite in a common effort to reduce violence at all levels of society, while speaking at his official residence at a swearing in ceremony for 18 new judges.

Peres expressed the shock and revulsion that he felt at the death of three women who  were killed over the weekend by a hit and run driver, as well as the senseless car bombing of a Palestinian taxi in which several members of a family including children were injured.

Putting an end to violence is a common cause on which there could be consensus among different streams and sectors of society, he said, urging the judges to lead the campaign.
