Bennett Likens Abbas to a '1999 Version of Assad'

During a tour of the Golan Heights, Finance Minister Naftali Bennett proclaimed, “I wonder what would be if Al-Qaeda terrorists would be here, threatening our children.”

Bennett made those comments in reference to current negotiations, specifically the prospect of Israel giving land to the PA leader, who in his words, is a more extreme version of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in 1999.
