MK Anat Berko (Likud), a member of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, discussed on Arutz Sheva the bill which she initiated and will raise tomorrow (Wednesday) for a preliminary reading in the Knesset.

The proposed law states that an Israeli citizen who took part in terrorist activities and is injured will have to pay for medical treatment at his own expense.

MK Barko explains, "It can not be that a resident of Sakhnin who goes to ISIS and returns without a leg, that the state and the citizens of Israel will pay his medical treatment; is not it enough that he brought Da'ash's ideology to Israel?

"This is not about preventing medical treatment, but not at the state's expense. Anyone who commits terror attacks must know that if he is injured, he will have to pay for the medical treatment at his own expense," the MK explained.

Barko relates to the fact that the two terrorists who carried out the murderous attack on the Temple Mount on Friday were Arabs with Israeli citizenship. "There is a process of incitement and deception among Israeli Arabs.

"Even here in the Knesset, the terminology used by the members of the Joint List is Balad and Da'ash. They justify and do not condemn the terror attacks, the incitement is so successful that it will eventually lead them to the abyss. The incitement does not allow Israeli Arab citizens to live here in coexistence," she added.
