Rivlin Recalls Ben-Tzion Netanyahu

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin reacted to the passing of Ben-Tzion Netanyahu by saying, "This is a man who tied his life to Jerusalem and Zionism, assisted Ze'ev Jabotinsky and was one of the greatest members of the Revisionist movement."

Rivlin added, "Ben-Tzion was a great scholar and historian who founded a pure, uncompromising form of Zionism, whose descendents nursed on his philosophy and worldview. Through his life, Ben-Tzion Netanyahu represents a chapter in Zionist history and Jewish history."
