Rotem’s friend and long-time political colleague, Yisrael Beytenu party chairman Avigdor Liberman, said in a statement, “David Rotem was not only a friend in politics but also a personal friend. A man of the Land of Israel who knew how to fight for his country and for his personal views. A man who was willing to stand his ground and was not cowed in facing the struggles that had to be faced to promote those ideals he believed in.

“A chairperson of Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, he contributed greatly to the State of Israel, the Knesset and Yisrael Beytenu,” Liberman continued.

“His death is a great loss and a great sorrow to all of his friends. My condolences to his family. May his memory be blessed.”
