“I am trying to form the equation between security quiet and economy,” Liberman said in a morning visit to Kibbutz Kissufim, adjacent to the Gaza border.

“If there’s no terror, there will be an economy. There has to be a direct connection,” he explained, Ynet reported. “That is the important message that we are trying to communicate to Gaza residents, to the average Gazan who is concerned with making a living and who thinks about how to provide for his family.

“Therefore, if there’s quiet . . . the border crossing will remain open. If there is no quiet, it will be closed.”
