The Minister of Education, Naftali Bennett, participated in the ceremony, which witnessed racist remarks against Arabs, and welcomed by audience.
Moshe Zir, a land dealer, stood on the podium, and gave a speech: “If you build a house, it will be as if you killed 100 Arabs. if you build a settlement, it will be as if you killed 10,000 non-Jews,”. These remarks were greeted with warm applause from the audience.
