Minister Cohen: We Are in War of Independence

Minister Yitzchak Cohen (Shas) said Thursday, after Ashkelon was hit by a rocket attack. "We are at war against the Palestinians, and we should act as one acts in war, not as if we are in an educational furlough," the cabinet member said.

Cohen, who is a resident of Ashkelon, said: "We are in the midst of a war of liberation – the liberation of the southern front from the hands of the murderers. As a resident of Ashkelon I feel that the War of Independence is not over. If the children are afraid to go out, that is not independence. It is time to create reality and not just react to it, to lead and not to be led."
