Naftali Bennett, Economy Minister and Jewish Home party chairman, wrote on Facebook Saturday night, “Terrorists should be killed, not released. All my life I fought towards fulfilling the two parts of this sentence. Tomorrow I will vote against.”
A former IDF combat officer, Bennett said he has ordered his party ministers to vote against the release of 104 terrorists, the latest “goodwill” gesture that the Obama administration has pressured Israel to carry out to bolster the status of Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
