that I too am deeply moved.

I wish to thank each

and every one of you

for coming here to take a stand

against violence and for peace.

This government...

which I am privileged to head...

together with my friend Shimon Peres...

decided to give peace a chance,

a peace that will solve most

of Israel's problems.

I was a military man for 27 years.

I fought as long

as there was no chance for peace.

I believe that

there is now a chance for peace,

a great chance...

and we must take advantage of it...

for the sake of those standing here

and for those who are not here,

and they are many.

I've always believed that the majority

of the people want peace

and are willing

to take risks for peace...

and you here,

by attending this rally,

demonstrate, together with many others

who did not come,

that the people truly desire peace.

It's odd

that the footage

of this horrific event

which someone filmed

is in our hands now.

The assassin managed to stay,

unnoticed, for 40 minutes

in what was supposed to be

a sterile zone.

The obvious conclusion

is that security was disregarded

in the northern parking lot...

the crowd there was unsupervised

as were the pedestrians

coming from the east and the west...

the lighting in the parking lot,

the roof of the City Garden mall...

and everything else

having to do with the area.

Everyone knew that it would be used

by the prime minister,

the foreign minister,

all the dignitaries,

it was the passageway

between the restricted stage area

and the guarded car,

everyone knew it.

A very dangerous zone

that required special attention.

There was none whatsoever.

Back on-the-record

for protocol's sake

about the chain of events

on November 4

from the moment

you arrived at the square.

I arrived at the square
