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.

    WHERE IS THE APOLOGY FOR LITTLE ADELE ?

  11. Peres y hope you gave tham the medale Obeheyme gave you and finaly you decided TO GO AWAY FROM ISRAEL YOU DONE MORE WRONG THAN ENYNODY

  12. Arabs don’t know the word condolence!

  13. Do the parents even care what Israel or an Israeli official has to say? A dead son has done more for them and those like them than by being alive. They long to be martyrs and their children are just a small expense.

  14. Chaya Mindal says:

    Sickening! IF its true that Jews did this, its Netanyahu And Peres’s faults! If they had taken correct action no Jew would resort to murder! NOW THE THREE BOYS AND THESE POSSIBLE Jewish people will loose their lives!

  15. Why is the Israeli media publicizing this. If it means anything Peres should have done this quietly without all this fanfare.

  16. BTW did the murdered son’s families get condolences from Peres the same way? Just curious!
