Rivlin at Holocaust memorial: Israel not compensation for Holocaust

April 15, 2015 20:28

President Reuven Rivlin said on Wednesday evening at the Holocaust Remembrance Day memorial in Jerusalem that there are people who mistakenly believe that the state of Israel is compensation for the Holocaust.

"Israel was established by right, and by love of the ancient homeland and the power of dreaming a dream which became a reality. It was not established because of the threat of destruction or the hate of the other," Rivlin said.
