Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) came Tuesday to offer comfort and condolences to the Litman family, as they sit shiva over Rabbi Yaakov Litman and his son, Netanel.

The rabbi and his son were murdered by Arab terrorists last Friday, as they traveled on Highway 60.

"When I was told about what happened before the Shabbat began," he recounted, "the first thought – other than the pain, of course – was a feeling of great anger.

"Forgive the expression, but how do these scum succeed each time? They got the Henkin family, and Yaakov and Netanel, the best people. All hear from them is good. Wise scholars and nice people. The heart explodes."

He turned to Sarah-Tehiya Litman and her fiancé, Ariel Bigel, and said: "You have a great merit, to make the impossible mental switch and build a loyal home in Israel, and to give the family a chance to come and rejoice."
