MK Bar on Attendance in Mandela's Funeral

MK Hilik Bar (Labor) related to his representation of Israel on the official delegation to the funeral of Nelson Mandela, "It is a great honor to represent Israel and the Knesset at this historic event. Mandela was a great, singular leader. He fought for equality and justice in South Africa and the rest of the world, as well as for peace in the Middle East. He paid a heavier personal price for this than most other leaders in the last centuries. May his memory be blessed."
