Deputy Minister Slams IDF Radio for Promoting Palestinian 'Lies'


Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis (Likud) fired heavy criticism at IDF Radio Monday night, accusing the network of featuring frequent interviews with Palestinian Authority (PA) negotiator Saeb Erekat.

"I hear Saeb Erekat on IDF Radio all the time - and every time I hear him on IDF Radio, he says that Hamas is 'not a terror organization," Akunis lamented, in the Knesset plenum. He added sarcastically: "They only send 10,000 rockets on the heads of the children of Sderot, Netivot, Rishon Lezion, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Tel Aviv and Gush Etzion, and fire rockets at Jerusalem."
