In response to Friday morning's vandalism of the Yitzkah Rabin memorial monument, the Yizhak Rabin Center in Tel Aviv released a statement:

"The Yitzhak Rabin Center condemns and denounces all activities of vandalism and damage to the site, which serves as a symbol and memory of the murder of Yitzhak Rabin, the late prime minister. The monument, which over the years became a heritage site, is a memory and a lesson learned in Israeli society."

"The Yitzhak Rabin Center welcomes the approval of the deal for the return of captured soldier Gilad Schalit, blesses the Schalit family, and sees in his release the state of Israel's obligation to its soldiers."

"The Rabin Center works to perpetuate Yitzhak Rabin's memory and to examine the lessons that Israeli society should derive from the assassination, its circumstances and its consequences."
