"Upon leaving the seminary Tamir was verbally attacked by dozens of youths who called out 'murderer,' 'get out of here' and 'the Left is to blame for everything.' She was also kicked in the back twice...
"The education minister was eventually whisked away by police officers and security guards.
"'I am deeply saddened that people cannot differentiate between a condolence visit and a political one,' Tamir said. Earlier the minister told Ynet that 'this reminded me of the days before (former Prime Minister Yitzhak) Rabin's murder. It's unfortunate that that there is a public which cannot put limits form itself. I only came to pay my respects to the murdered, not to engage in politics.'
"Meanwhile it was reported that the seminary has responded negatively to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's request to pay a condolence visit of his own, but sources in the PM's Office are still hopeful."
