Orlev: Netanyahu Loss Difficult for Jewish People


Member of Knesset Zevulun Orlev (Bayit Yehudi-New National Religious Party) said, Monday, that the passing of Professor Ben-Tzion Netanyahu "is a difficult loss for the Jewish people and the state of Israel because of his important contribution to the study of Jewish history and editing of the Hebrew Encyclopedia, as well as the education he gave his children, led by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu."

Orlev noted that Professor Netanyahu "merited a long life and to see the achievements of the state of Israel and the impressive leadership of his son, the prime minister." In expressing the traditional condolences to the Netanyahu family, he wished the prime minister the building of Jerusalem and the land of Israel and preserving the state of Israel's future.
