Kara: Moment of Silence for Syrian Murder Victims

Referring to recent massacres in Syria, Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara called on Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, Monday, "to open the meetings of the Knesset this week with a minute of silence for the helpless women, children and babies murdered every day every hour by a brutal dictator including the use of chemical weapons against them."

In a letter to his fellow Likud lawmaker, Kara added, "Israel as a neighbor and a democratic state cannot pay only lip service. The difficult scenes require identification beyond beautiful statements, especially after the use of chemical weapons and carnage this week."
