Furor at the attempt bring a proposal before the Ministerial Legislative Committee to preempt the future release of terrorists has spurred members of Tzipi Livni and her Hatnua party to place a media spin connecting Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home party to the Elazar Stern spitting incident.
Livni’s people expressed surprise, however, by her response. “Spitting in the face of IDF General Elazar Stern came out of the mouth of Naftali Bennett and his friends, as well as (their) false incitement. Jewish Home prefers to build settlements over Israel’s national and security interests," Livni began.
Hatnua will continue to lead, in coordination with the Prime Minister, the political process to achieve the goal of two states for two peoples, which is in Israel’s vital interests," she added.
