Minister: No Compromise and No Gestures


Tourism Minister Uzi Landau said, Tuesday morning, "Recent events and decisions of Israeli governments through the years, to release many murderers prove, time and again, that the release stimulates terrorist organizations to focus on abductions, and brings about a growing circle of bloodshed and terror."

Responding to the fact that the terrorist arrested for the murder of police commander Baruch Mizrahi had been released in the Gilad Schalit deal, Landau said, "The message that we all must internalize and understand is that we do not negotiate with terrorism, don't make concessions, don't make compromises and gestures, but only one thing: we fight terrorism nonstop."
