Rivlin: ‘Price tag’ is terrorism – but don’t blame settlers

November 8, 2011 12:22

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin plans to slam “price tag” vandalism, calling it “Jewish terrorism,” during a special Knesset session in memory of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin on Wednesday.

Rivlin released on Tuesday his speech for the upcoming memorial session, during which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres, Supreme Court President Dorit Beinish and opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) are scheduled to speak.

“Rabin’s assassination carries two messages on democracy: We must have zero tolerance for political violence, and at the same time, we must avoid demonization of political groups and minorities,” Rivlin wrote. “We must avoid gross and negligent generalizations, as those who opposed Oslo faced after the murder.”
