MK Chetboun Calls Terrorist Release "Political Spin"


Member of Knesset Yoni Chetboun (Bayit Yehudi - National Union) called the rumors of a pending terrorist prisoner release a "spin." He made the comments on Tuesday at an emergency meeting of the Knesset Land of Israel Caucus.

"This is a spin to distract us from our main focus, which is keeping the land," the MK stated. He called for the public not to become preoccupied with the recently hinted resumption of talks with the PA but to focus on building up the country and repopulating barren areas. "We should not become confused -- there is a struggle for the land," he said.
