Rivlin to Students: The Decision Rests with the Knesset

Representatives of students who are protesting the housing crisis told Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, on Monday, that the current government did not create the crisis but must solve it. They added that the point was whether or not they could live in this country or not.

Rivlin responded by saying that the decisions rest solely in the hands of the elected officials who make up the Knesset. He said the student's demonstrations were at their peak and should not be allowed to deteriorate.
