According to MK Amram Mitzna (Hatnua), Jews who live in Judea and Samaria are comparable to Hamas murderers.

Speaking to Israel Radio Thursday, Mitzna – a retired IDF general and a former mayor of Haifa – said “if you take the terror aspect away from Hamas, which of course I complete object to, you essentially have the fact that a member of the Israeli government that is working towards the same goals as Hamas.

“Does the prime minister, who gives total backing and demands that the Palestinians and Hamas recognize the three requirements set by the Quartet  -recognizing Israel, ending terrorism and of course recognition and a commitment to honor all previously-signed agreements. Is that what the prime minister demands from the Jewish Home party?

“[Does he demand] they recognize a Palestinian state? Has anyone heard the Jewish Home say they do? Has any Jewish Home leader said he would stand behind the agreements signed by the Israeli government, such as Oslo and other agreements?,” Mitzna said.

According to Ynet, Deputy Education Minister Avi Whartzman (Jewish Home) responded to Mitzna’s outburst, accusing the former Labor Party chairman of incitement. “This is very serious,” Whartzman said. “I expect an apology from (Justice) Minister (Tzippi) Livni” (chairwoman of the Hatnua Party).

Whartzman said that “Mitzna said some very serious things. Who does he think he is – a member of the most minor member of this coalition coming to preach to us? He has crossed a red line here… I would remind Mr Mitzna that just yesterday the cabinet decided to deal with an organization that Abu Mazen provides with thousands of shekels a month. We give social benefits to our discharged soldiers. They pay salaries to murderers.

“Mitzna is not in any place to preach. The comparison to this terror group is outrageous and out of line. It is a pathetic statement – not about us, but about MK Mitzna,” Whartzman said.
