Israeli president attacks government assault on state bodies

Herzl Cemetery in Jerusalem. In an unusually blunt address to parliament, Monday, Oct. 23, 2017, Rivlin accused the government of delegitimizing state institutions as part of a campaign of stifling opposition. Rivlin made a scathing critique of his former political home — the Likud Party of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. (AP Photo/Debbie Hill, Pool, File)
