Baby Adele HY"D's mother - 'Rivlin and Netanyahu never visited my daughter'
Adva Biton, the mother
of terror victim
Adele Biton HY"D
, has blasted President Rivlin and Prime Minister Netanyahu
for the different treatment accorded to the Arab family that was the victim of a terror attack in Duma than was accorded to her family.
“I don't recall President Rivlin, whom I have great respect
for, visiting my daughter in the hospital after she was struck by a
rock. I don't recall him calling for a public protest when Adelle was
attacked. Something is wrong here.” Neither, she said, did Prime
Minister Binyamin Netanyahu visit her in the hospital.
Three year old Adelle Biton was killed last March when an
terrorists threw a rock at the car she was riding in as they drove along
a road in Samaria. Five Arab teens were arrested in the case, and
confessed to throwing large rocks at the Biton family vehicle. A large
stone struck Adelle in the head, and she was comatose for nearly two
months before waking with permanent, severe disabilities, passing away
two years later due to medical complications.
On Friday, Rivlin spoke out against the arson attack last week
in the village of Duma, in which an infant was burned to death, and four
family members were severely burned. On Saturday night, Rivlin appeared
at a rally in Tel Aviv denouncing the attack, which appeared to have
been carried out by Jewish extremists.
But while Rivlin and other politicians were quick to speak out
against attacks on the Arab population, attacks on Jews – especially
religious ones – did not get top priority.
