Security Guards Stop Bereaved Father at Cemetery


Security guards prevented a bereaved father from approaching Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu at a Memorial Day ceremony at the Mount Herzl Military Cemetery in Jerusalem on Wednesday. Ron Kehrmann was stopped at the entrance of the cemetery and prevented from entering and attending the memorial ceremony for victims of terrorism.

Kehrmann had in his possession a letter he wanted to deliver to Prime Minister Netanyahu criticizing his participating in the ceremony following the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal. Kehrmann's 17-year-old daughter Tal was murdered by terrorists in 2003 in Haifa. Kehrmann has written several editorials in Israeli newspapers criticizing the releasing of terrorists who assisted in bus bombings and other attacks.
