"I deeply regret that the circumstances of my letter – added Rivlin – are so painful. There are no words to adequately express my horror and my disgust that you should be exposed to such criminal behavior. As a Holocaust survivor you have seen the terrible and tragic consequences of anti-Semitism if not stopped ". Rivlin then pointed out that the case of Liliana Segre "is just another terrible example of reality for Jews in Europe today. But I believe that the most appropriate response – he continued – is to continue to do what you believe ".

"Your personal mission, your strength and your courage are models for us in Israel and for Jewish communities throughout the world," added the head of the Jewish state.
