On the Public Agenda
After years of ambiguity regarding compensation for property damage incurred during violent events related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Knesset Finance Committee approved regulations which obligate the State to offer compensation for property damaged incurred during such incidents. Committee Chairman Slomiansky: ”Authorities should prevent such acts of violence from occurring in the first place”

The Knesset commemorates the memory of Simon Wiesenthal, ”Nazi Hunter”. Speaker of the Knesset Reuven Rivlin: ”Simon Wiesenthal was a man who fought in the name of the six million killed in the Holocaust. His persistent work to locate the perpetrators of the worst crime - genocide - revealed the Nazi destruction machine, gave us a sense of justice and brought self-respect for the Jews...During his work to bring the Nazi criminals to justice, he aroused the world`s conscious and clarified to humanity that acts of murder and destruction are not just a Jewish issue.”
