Jerusalem - Mother Of Two-Time Gay Pride Stabber Reaches Out To Victims; Expresses Sorrow And Offers Prayers
Jerusalem - On Tuesday, the mother of two-time Gay Pride parade attacker Yishai Shlissel finally broke her silence, telling the press that Shlissel’s family “regrets” his actions in the “great tragedy,” and that the family is “praying” for her son’s victims.
WALLA.co.il (http://bit.ly/1M39faT) reports that Rivka Shlissel offered no other details regarding the incident, despite reports that the Shlissel family, along with local Haredi rabbis and acquaintances of Yishai Shlissel, are targets of investigators as they probe into whether anyone had any prior knowledge that the serial stabber was intent on striking his second Gay Pride parade.
According to reports, investigators are currently busy sifting through Shlissel’s phone activity for the days leading up-to-and-including the attack that left 16 year-old Shira Banki dead and several others seriously injured.
Investigators also want to know why police were seemingly unaware of Shlissel’s movement in and around the parade despite the fact that he had been released from prison just weeks before for committing a similar crime back in 2005.
Investigators have also been critical of one of the appointees charged with uncovering any intelligence failures at the local police level, charging that Mevaseret Zion station Commander Anna Ben Mordechai Raizel may be in conflict of interest since she serves under Jerusalem District Police Commander Maj. Gen. Moshe Edri, a target of the internal probe.
