Netanyahu about Yigal Amir: We don't need to hear thoughts of a killer
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu paid tribute to Yitzhak Rabin during a Knesset memorial session for the assassinated prime minister, saying that he was a leader who had no ulterior motives.
Netanyahu went on to say that children born in the last 13 years who have lived in a world without Rabin "do not need to hear the thoughts and visions of a killer."
The opposition leader was referring to plans which were withdrawn at the last moment two weeks ago to air an interview with Rabin's killer, Yigal Amir, on channels 2 and 10.
Netanyahu said that calls to harm a prime minister and IDF soldiers must not be tolerated.
"The lesson we have all learned is that a responsible leadership must act on time against incitement. We must not allow wild opposition and violence against law enforcement authorities," he added.
