Minister of Finance Naftali Bennett, at a meeting of the “Jewish Home” faction today (Monday), called for a clear policy to be set on the releasing of terrorists.
“This Knesset is one of opportunities, of action, and we have gone through the labor pains so we can begin to work,” he said, describing some of the accomplishments already achieved..
On the increase in terror attacks, Mr. Bennett said, “During our recess, we have seen a creeping Intifada growing week after week, where Jews have been murdered in horrible ways. One soldier was abducted and murdered, another kidnapped and murdered. We’ve seen a 9-yr.-old girl shot while playing on her porch, and a soldier who was attacked with axes and bludgeoned to death. We must defeat this Intifada now, at its onset.”
