Peres and Feiglin Join to Eulogize Murdered Minister Ze’evi

President Shimon Peres and Knesset Members Moshe Feiglin and Avigdor Liberman were shared the same podium Thursday on the 12th anniversary of the assassination of Tourism Minister Rechavem (Ghandi) Ze’evi at the hands of three Arab terrorists in a Jerusalem hotel.

“Ghandi,” as he was popularly known, fought in the War for Independence and was a staunch nationalist, having founded the Moledet party that promoted a voluntary transfer of Arabs from Judea, Gaza and Samaria.

“The bullets that struck Gandhi were not just a heinous act of murder but also a political mistake, because Gandhi did not hate Arabs, but sought a way to end the enmity between us,” said President Peres at the ceremony at the Har Herzl cemetery.

“Even after 12 years, we mourn for, give respect to, and feel the loss of Gandhi, and his uniqueness – Gandhi the commander, Gandhi the responsible one, Gandhi the minister.”

    I am so glad that he is being commemorated. My only "encounter" with him was in an episode from Chaim Topol's documentary series on Israel, made for the BBC, when "Gandhi" was seen encouraging youngsters in archaeology, and having very cordial relations with Bedouin families. "What a marvellous man" was – and is – my feeling.

  2. Yechiel Baum says:

    Did these Israeli leaders feel invincible at the Eulogy or finally realize that by giving anything to he arab squatters in the Jewish State of Israel will endanger their lives as well?! Otherwise, those eulogies are a sham!
