Israel Votes: 2013 Elections
After three months of campaigning, Israelis exercised their democratic right on Tuesday, voting in the 19th Knesset at polling stations in schools and public buildings across the country.
On Monday, President Shimon Peres encouraged citizens to to vote, saying, “It’s very important that every one of you, once every four years, shows the world that this is a democratic country, with citizens who love their country and democracy. Come out and do so, wholeheartedly, with pride and with full participation.”
Final results are appearing, check out these news stories for the latest updates:
Burgas Terrorist Attack
The Zionist Federation of New Zealand is deeply shocked and saddened by the horrific terrorist attack at Sarafovo Airport in Burgas, Bulgaria which killed seven people, including five Israelis. This attack also coincided with the eighteenth anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Israel continues to seek peace whilst showing it will never be defeated by the violence of terror and will always stand strong in the face of brutality. Our thoughts are with the grieving families, may their memories be a blessing.
