In an interview on Galei Tzahal radio on Tuesday, attorney Talia Sasson said that Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu was among those who approved the Sasson report in 2005. The report claimed that the Israeli government was discreetly enabling the repatriation of Jewish people into Judea and Samaria. Sasson referred to the alleged funding of the communities as "illegal." She later went on to run for public office with the Meretz party. Her latest statements have sparked controversy with government officials.
