Rabbi Drukman also addressed Prime Minister Netanyahu: “I am turning to the Prime Minister with a request from the depths of my heart to order the immediate release of the minors, the three youths detained by the GSS.

And I am concerned by this about the sound and just management of the State of Israel. ‘Justice, justice you should pursue’ (Deut. 16:20): Justice must be pursued by just means and not through injustice.” Rabbi Drukman concluded his talk with a request to the Prime Minister: “I ask of you to put a stop to this injustice immediately.”
