Rivlin: Gov’t Should Lead the Nation, Not Be Led By Emotions

President-elect Reuven Rivlin visited Sderot in light of the increased shooting of rockets from Gaza towards the southern city and said, “I have come here to show my solidarity with those living on the front lines of rocket fire, which includes the resident of the city of Sderot, who are an expression of our lives here in the State of Israel.”

Rivlin added, “The role of the country’s leadership is to lead the nation; not to be led by emotions. Careful consideration must be employed, including consideration of the future.”
