Knesset Speaker Warns Against Concessions

Speaking at a Chanukah candle lighting ceremony at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin warned against territorial concessions in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria.

"We are not trespassers, we are not thieves, and Hebron is not a payment transferred to a merchant. In the construction of Hebron, Jerusalem will be built too."

"Anyone who is waiting for miracles should know that only the one who believes in the virtue of his path and takes action to actualize it is worthy of miracles," he added.
