Ben Eliezer: Prof. Weiss is Just as Bad as Haniyeh

In a weekend interview, Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben Eliezer said that Professor Hillel Weiss, who angrily denounced last week's evictions in Hebron, was “just as bad” as Hamas chief terrorist Ismail Haniyeh. “Refusing orders 9in the IDF) is no worse than terrorism,” Ben Eliezer said.

Ben Eliezer added that “the possibility of disbanding the Hesder yeshivot should be considered,” since they foster “loyalty to the rabbis, and not the IDF.”
