Rivlin: Please stop this madness, it’s civil war without reason

Calling in to Channel 12, President Reuven Rivlin implores Israelis to stop the “madness” unfolding on the streets of Jewish-Arab cities.

“I am very worried,” he says, adding that he is “crying out” for internal peace as Israel faces attacks from outside enemies.

“I call on and beg of all local leaders, religious leaders, on citizens, on parents. Do all you can to stop this terrible thing that is happening before our eyes,” he says.

“We are dealing with a civil war between us without any reason. Please stop this madness.”
