PM: We'll Respond to Terror; We'll Fight Price Tag


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu participated in a ceremony, Monday, for the unveiling of the symbol named after his father, Professor Bentzion Netanyahu of blessed memory in the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Barkan. Addressing those in attendance, he said, "The ability of the Jews to defend themselves is something that guides me in every arena, against any threat. Last night it was the firing of rockets at our communities and the response came immediately. My policy is to harm someone who is trying to hurt us. No "drips" and no accumulation. That's how we work and how we will continue to act against close threats and distant threats."

Addressing the vandalizing of vehicles in Jerusalem, Netanyahu said, "We cannot accept the untying of the law in our midst. We are working with a strong hand against that and will continue to do so."
