Edelstein: Violence a Disease to Both Right & Left

Speaking at the official state memorial for Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud - Yisrael Beiteinu) said "temptations of violence are a short-term and brutal solution" over political diplomacy. "This is not a disease of the left wing or of the right wing, it is not only Israeli or Jewish," he stated. "We need to teach youth and adults of the injustice of political violence, the stupidity of taking the law into their own hands, and the folly of anarchy."
