MK Mola: Rivlin Defamed Rabin's Memory


Member of Knesset Shlomo Molla (Kadima) attacked Speaker Reuven Rivlin, Sunday, for speaking out against the Oslo Accords during his remarks at the Knesset's memorial observance marking the 17th anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.

Molla said, "The Knesset Speaker defamed the position and exploited the state stage, during the memorial observance for the late prime minister Yitzchak Rabin, to promote matters for the primaries. The feeling was that Rivlin's remarks were addressing [the Likud's Moshe] Feiglin and his cronies as if they were present in the plenum. This is, of course, not surprising, given the union of the parties that was made recently and the fact that the Likud chose to join, in fact, Yisrael Beytenu, the party with the racism engraved on its flag which it has to promote."
