Speaker Edelstein: US criticism against Prime Minister Netanyahu ”an insult to all Israelis”
During a special plenary sitting marking 13 years since the murder of minister Rechavam Ze`evi, Knesset Speaker Edelstein says ”the unrestrained criticism towards Israel and its leader that was cited in the name of `senior` White House officials crosses all boundaries. It is okay to disagree, but in diplomatic ties, especially between close friends, it is appropriate to be respectful.” Netanyahu: ”Israel`s interests are not important to those who attack us and me personally”


Speaker Edelstein to Bundestag members: ”We do not forget history, but the change is real”
During a meeting at the Knesset with members of the Bundestag, Speaker Edelstein says ”everyone remembers the history, but at the same time I believe the message that is coming out of the cooperation between Israel and Germany is a very strong one: That things can be different, should be different and are different today.” Edelstein further says that the 50 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries ”should not be taken for granted”
