President Shimon Peres gave a special speech Thursday regarding rising tensions in the region saying that it was time to "respect the law" and "avoid incitement".
"We weren't born to hate," said the president. "A few days ago we all behaved as one, with dignity. Even during our sorrow we called together for restraint. People who are engaged in incitement are not always aware where it can lead, to more sorrow, to more dangers."
