Thousands turn out in Jerusalem for funerals of Itamar terror victims – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Vice Premier and Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Yaalon spoke during the funeral, saying the Itamar terror attack highlights an existential threat to Israel.”This murder reminds everyone that the struggle and conflict is not about Israel’s borders or about independence of a repressed nation but a struggle for our existence. Therefore, we cannot continue speaking about security while the essence is neglected – the essence which is Israel’s right to its land,” said Yaalon.”Whoever gives up this right won’t have security either. In this difficult hour we must rise from the rubble and do the most natural thing – continue building and developing Israel,” Yaalon continued.
