Reuven Rivlin Quotes
A multicultural society does not reject the culture of the other but is prepared to listen, to see, to dialogue and, in the final analysis, to possibly accept the other's culture without compromising its own.
We are living in a multicultural society. Our role as leaders is to enable grappling with this situation, even when multiculturalism is difficult.
Multiculturalism is a bed of beautiful roses that has some thorns, so we just have to be careful not to get pricked or to prick one another.
We demand that people don't deny the Holocaust, and we can't ignore the tragedy of another nation.
I believe that our democratic values are also born out of our Jewish faith, a 'love for the stranger,' and equality before the law - these are not foreign values: this is Judaism.
Jerusalem is the united capital of Israel. Since 1967, anyone can practice his religion according to his own conscience and complete free will.
As a Jew, even if you were not born in Poland, the very name, Poland, gives rise to a shuddering in your body and a longing in your heart. This country was the breeding ground for the soul of the Jewish nation, and unfortunately, also grounds to the largest Jewish cemetery.

I'm not opposed to talking with anyone who is willing to talk.
All over the Middle East, we face difficult challenges: the ongoing tragedy in Syria, the instability in Iraq, and the jihadist terrorism which dares to speak in the name of Islam, brings so many to seek refuge. The Hashemite Kingdom is facing all these challenges with honor, with dignity, and with great national and human solidarity.
We must stay focused on the bilateral negotiations between the Palestinians and us.
I see myself as a former politician, and in that capacity, I say to other politicians, 'Hold back.'
We are one family, and the connection between all Jews, all over the world, is very important to the State of Israel.
The president is the face of the State of Israel around the world: not a representative of a specific ideology but of the collective creativity and history of the Jewish people.
It's not for the president to determine the arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians, and the Arab world, but to be the bridge between opinions and to facilitate dialogue and understanding.
There will never be peace unless we have open borders. But that does not mean open on our side and you continue to hit me on the other.
