Herzog: I condemn any support for hunger striking terrorists

Opposition leader and Zionist Union chairman MK Yitzhak Herzog on Friday responded to MK Erel Margalit (Zionist Union), who expressed his support for the terrorists who are imprisoned in Israel and who this week launched a hunger strike led by archterrorist Marwan Barghouti.

"The Zionist left wants peace but also persecutes terrorists. If the words of MK Margalit were indeed uttered as they were published, then they are disconnected from reality and contrary to all the values of the Zionist left center in Israel, and undermine our ability to establish a large bloc that can replace the current government. I strongly condemn any support for the striking prisoners, most of whom have Israeli blood on their hands and expect MK Margalit to clarify his words," said Herzog.
