As revenge for the death of Udi, Ruth, Elad, Yoav and Hadas Fogel, "we will live, we will continue to build and to plant, we will continue to grip onto the land of Israel: in Itamar, in Beit Hagai, in Hebron and in Jerusalem, everywhere and any time," Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said Sunday, speaking at the funeral of the Fogel family in Givat Shaul.

"More construction, more life, more hanging onto the land. This is our answer to the murderers, so that they know they haven't gotten the better of us. We will awaken our right to build anywhere and at anytime. Construction in Israel is not a retaliation or revenge for the victim," Rivlin said.

"You were a moved and a symbol of the allegiance of the Zionist, the Jew, the Israeli. Despite all the difficulties, you believed and you overcame the hardships."
