Kerry's threats of a third intifada have been criticized by others as well. MK Yoni Chetboun (Jewish Home) on November 8 linked Kerry's statement with the several terrorist attacks that followed it the same day and the day after.
Ben-Dahan panned Kerry's intifada threats, saying "the terrorists don't wait if there's peace or not, they showed Kerry that with all due respect, they don't need him and his encouragement. They attack us every day and every moment."
At this juncture following the attack, Ben-Dahan insisted "we need to say to Mr. Kerry: go back to America, deal with problems there , you can't be a fair intermediary here."
