Herzog pans Netanyahu in Rabin memorial speech

During a speech at a Knesset ceremony marking 20 years since the assassination of prime minister Rabin, opposition chief Isaac Herzog lashes out at Netanyahu.

“Twenty years have elapsed and the State of Israel misses his responsible, decision-making leadership, it misses Yitzhak Rabin, Mr. Responsibility, and is disgusted by a leadership that only says, ‘Who will I blame today?'”

Adds Herzog, “Were Rabin to have been in the prime minister’s chair today, he would have proven anew, as he did throughout his military and political service, that his sole goal is to safeguard a Jewish and democratic state.”

Herzog says Rabin was assassinated because he tried to avert a binational state.
