President Shimon Peres spoke this afternoon (Monday) with Hussein Abu Khdeir, the father of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, and expressed his condolences.

“I know what you and your family are going through. I am full of shame and share in your grief. He was murdered by criminals. I am ashamed on behalf of my nation and I grieve with you. The only thing left for all of us to do is to ensure that no more children are murdered, and no more tears are shed are by mothers,” Peres said.

Hussein Abu Khdeir responded that he “seeks true justice in the court,” to which Peres replied that Israel would do all it can to bring the killers to justice. 

“Justice will be done and we will not compromise on that. We all reject murderers and like you I want justice, true justice. There is nothing that saddens us more than the tears of a mother and the grief of a father. Sadly there is no comfort for a grieving mother but there will be no compassion for the murderers. The murderers must be punished and the murder uprooted from its source. We must replace the mourner’s tent with a tabernacle of peace,” said the President.
