Jewish Home MK Yinon Magal joined dozens of Israelis who visited the site near Itamar in Samaria where Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin were murdered late Thursday night in front of their four children. 

"It is time the Arabs to learn from history," Magal stated Friday morning. "If no Jews would be here, those who would be would not want to live in peace, those who opened fire and who killed parents in front of their children." 

Magal called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to accelerate construction in Judea-Samaria regardless of the attack, adding, "the real thing we have to understand is that we must properly rid ourselves of the folly of the idea of a Palestinian state, which is not established, cannot be established, and will not exist." 

Magal warned, as well, that previous withdrawals have only shown that terror groups fill a power vacuum. 

"We see what happens in any case when we leave, from Lebanon and the Golan Heights - if we retreat from Judea-Samaria today, ISIS (Islamic State) will take over," he said. "Every time we have withdrawn we have left terror in our wake." 

"The terrible alternatives we face here are Hamas or ISIS rule, and it won't happen."

Ironically, Magal just this July said that he is ready "to give up on land in exchange for peace," indicating he would be willing to establish a Palestinian state, and adding that it's a "bummer" to be an "occupier."
