JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Far-right hawk Reuven Rivlin was sworn in as Israel's 10th president on Thursday at a formal ceremony in parliament which saw elder statesman Shimon Peres stepping down.

"In prayer, in awe and humility, on your behalf and at your command, I come to faithfully fulfil my role as 10th president of the state of Israel," he said, a skullcap on his head and his left hand resting on a copy of the Old Testament.

Rivlin will officially begin his term in office on Monday, drawing a line under what many Israelis have seen as a golden age of the presidency.

"His left hand resting on a copy of the Old Testament". Bless his heart. The Old Testament is right, it is an old one. Israel needs a new Testament and 10 more new Commandments. The first ten or thirteen Commandments, they used them, over-used them , broke everyone of them so many times, so I thought ten new ones or thirteen can maybe bring them closer to their maker.
