Why Didn’t Yechimovich Attend the Zeevi Memorial?


Participants in the Knesset’s special session today (Wednesday) in memory of assassinated Minister (“Gandhi”) Zeevi took notice that opposition leader Shelly Yechimovich had not attended.

Protocol requires that the Prime Minister, the Opposition Leader and a Coalition Representative speak at ceremonies such as these.  But sources within the Knesset said that, “The members of the leftist parties refuse to participate in a ceremony that commemorates the murder of someone from the nationalist front. Only at the end, did MK Ilan Gilon finally make an appearance.”
