Rivlin says, This is not how we wanted you

Rivlin addresses the funeral gathering. He acknowledges the officials present, including French Minister Segolene Royal.

“Dear families, Yoav, Yohan, Philippe, Francois-Michel, this is not how we wanted to welcome you to Israel. This is not how we wanted you to arrive in the Land of Israel, this is not how we wanted to see you come home, to the State of Israel, and to Jerusalem, its capital. We wanted you alive, we wanted for you, life.

“At moments such as these, I stand before you, brokenhearted, shaken and in pain, and with me stands an entire nation.”
