Bennett: Call Them Murderers, Not Prisoners


Minister of Economics Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home - National Union) blasted the decision to release terrorists.  In an public announcement on his official Facebook page he stated, "I am ceasing to call them prisoners, as if they were convicted of traffic violations." He called upon the Israel Defense Force to review the procedures of how soldiers arrest terrorists saying that it wasn't moral to have them risk their lives only to have the terrorists released in the future. On Tuesday the first installment of the terrorist release took place, in a bid to restart negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.
