Former IDF chief of staff and leader of the Israeli Resilience Party Benny Gantz dodged a question of politics as he attended the funeral of Amos Oz on Monday."Isn't this a symbolic crowd, people from left and right here?" a reporter asked Gantz about the crowd attending the funeral, noting that people from all sides of the political spectrum were attending. "This is Israel, Left or Right, it doesn't matter, it's all about Israel," Gantz replied.At the funeral, Gantz greeted former Likud Justice Minister Dan Meridor, who has been rumored to be on the Knesset list of his new Hosen L'Israel (Israel Resilience) Party. When they saw they were being filmed, they parted ways, because Meridor said their embrace would be interepreted as a political statement.Gantz has been careful not to make any political statements in the months ahead of him entering politics and since he registered his party on Thursday.
