Knesset Speaker: Best answer to terror - continued building

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein told the family of slain Rabbi Raziel Shevach on Thursday, "The State of Israel will not rest until it puts its hands on the murderers."

Speaking during a condolence call at the family home in the Samarian Jewish community of Havat Gil'ad, Edelstein continued, "The best answer to terrorism is continued construction in Judea and Samaria and development of infrastructures and means of protection. Noting that Havat Gil'ad was named in memory of terror victim Gil'ad Zar, he concluded, "We do not want any more communities named after murdered people. We want to live here by right and not by charity."
