Bennett calls Rabin Memorial rally a shameful leftist protest

Education Minister, Naftali Bennett blasted the annual rally marking the anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin held in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv on Saturday night calling it a "shameful leftist protest" .
Responding to the crowds verbal disapproval of Minister of Regional Cooperation and Likud party member Tzachi Hanegb's speech at the event, Bennett wrote:  "Booing against Hanegbi. The right did not kill Rabin, Yigal Amir did."
"As a leader on the right who opposes a Palestinian state, I am tired of the annual false accusations from the left. Right wingers don't need to to come to a demonstration where the goal is to denounce them."
Taking another shot at the participants at the rally, Bennett added: "The lesson from the extreme left: It's the right's fault; My lesson: No violence and no civil war, You decide."
