Yael Weissman, the widow of IDF hero Yanai Weissman, met with Ambassador Danny Danon at the Israeli Mission to the UN this week.
Yanai, who was on leave from his military service, was murdered in a terrorist attack on a supermarket in the Binymain region last February.
Yael, who was in New York with her baby daughter Neta, presented Ambassador Danon with a letter asking that he convince world leaders to condemn the Palestinian incitement which motivated the fourteen and fifteen your old terrorists who murdered her husband.
“I feel that it is my duty to call on the rational leaders of the world to unequivocally condemn the murder, and horrific incitement, coming out of the Palestinian Authority,” Yael wrote in her letter.
Ambassador Danon thanked Yael for her initiative and pledged to continue to demand at the UN that world leaders condemn Palestinian incitement.
“We are working tirelessly at the UN and we continuously demand that world leaders take concrete steps in battling this ugly phenomenon,” said Ambassador Danon.
“It is unacceptable that money donated by the nations of the world ends up funding incitement in the media and Palestinian Authority public schools,” he continued.
Yanai Weissman was on leave and unarmed with his family when he attempted to stop the terrorists with his bare arms. One of the terrorists succeed in stabbing Yanai and he later succumbed to his injuries. Weissman will receive a citation in July from the Commander of the IDF Central Command for his act of bravery.
