Rabbi Gil Nativ, a former member of the 71st Paratrooper’s Battalion, who was among the soldiers who liberated the Western Wall during the Six Day War in 1967, told the Post that he was attending the rally because he felt that the Kotel “needed to be liberated again.”
“When we fought for this place in 1967, we did it for all of Israel, not just one group,” Nativ said. “Recently, certain groups have tried to assert their authority over others, making them uncomfortable. What we did here tonight was try and show that the Kotel is for everyone, and that pluralism should prevail here.”
No matter one’s position on the issue, that’s a very bold quote from a credible person.
