Bereaved Protester: PM Has Lost Right to Occupy Seat


Chairman Kobi Kimhi of the Lev Echad (One Heart) organization, whose father was killed in a terror attack, said, Monday, was one of those who protested by raising a bloody red cloth during a Memorial Day observance against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's program of security prisoner releases. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva after protesters and their sympathizers were removed by security personnel, he said, "We felt full responsibility to represent the bereaved families and to raise red hands that represent, today, the release of terrorists, the release of murderers who should not be released."

Kimhi added, "Netanyahu heard the cries and received the messages but I do not believe he will stop his policy. As far as I'm concerned, Netanyahu lost the right to sit in his chair long ago."
