Pres. Herzog opens Memorial Day ceremony at the Western Wall

Speaking at the opening ceremony for Memorial Day events for fallen IDF soldiers at the Western Wall, Israeli President Isaac Herzog stressed the importance of unity.
“Our sons and daughters, who fell in the defense of the state, fought together and fell together,” Herzog said. “They did not ask, and no &#111ne asked them, whether people were right-wing or left-wing, religious or secular, Jew or non-Jew. Bereavement did not distinguish either. They fell as Israelis, for the defense of Israel.”
“In the cemeteries, between the gravestones, there is &#111nly silence. Silence that requires us to focus &#111n the revival of Israel, the rebuilding of Israel. United we must be, guarantors of &#111ne another. Because we are sisters and brothers,” Herzog concluded.
