Minister Regev: We'll have to take responsibility for Jenin soon

Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev responded, Monday, to the harsh lynching of IDF soldiers in the Samarian Palestinian Authority city of Jenin, saying, "We saw human animal behavior today. The scenes of blood reminded us of the lynching in Ramallah about 18 years ago [in which 2 Israeli reservists were murdered and their bodies mutilated -ed.], and this time it ended with less serious consequences. Israeli society will not tolerate life alongside a system that incites hatred and violence for a long time."

She concluded, "Events of this sort that took place today are bringing the day closer on which we - the State of Israel, will have to take responsibility for what is happening there."
