Ariel: Truce is Like a Train Wreck Waiting to Happen


Housing Minister Uri Ariel called Tuesday's diplomatic-security cabinet acceptance of an Egyptian cease-fire proposal with Gaza terrorists a strategic mistake, likening it to building a railroad without the last kilometer of track.

The Jewish Home lawmaker continued, "In such a case the crash is inevitable. Nobody has a doubt that surely it's only a matter of time before the missiles return [to fall] on Israel. The serpent's head must be crushed and not allowed to rest, and there is no doubt that the residents of Israel will regret the lack of political ability to make such a courageous decision as that."
