Bennett praises Olmert for Syrian nuclear reactor bombing

Education Minister Naftali Bennett praised the operation to bomb the Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007 after Israel officially acknowledged its role on Wednesday.

'''If someone is coming to kill you, hurry to kill him'", tweeted Bennett, invoking the Talmudic axiom. "I congratulate the government of Israel and then- Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, for making a courageous decision for the sake of Israel's security and for the Air Force pilots for perfect, clean and peaceful execution."
