Bennett: Yes, We Have to Tie our Own Hands


Economics Minister says his party's bill will prevent Israeli government from releasing terrorists, even if it wants to.

Bennett went so far as to say that “the Israeli governments in the last 30 years have proven that they cannot withstand the pressure, and that the nation, which is the sovereign, must tie their hands. If the opponents to the law say that we are tying our own hands – then I say, this true. It appears that we have to tie our own hands if we have reached this situation.”
