Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared Saturday night that he “will instruct the Interior Minister to evaluate revoking the citizenship of those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”
The Prime Minister did not specifically relate to the riots in the northern Israel city of Kfar Kanna on Saturday following the Friday night police action that killed an Arab terrorist whom officers tried to arrest.
Arabs in the city claimed that the terrorist was shot in cold blood.
“Israel is a nation of law. We will not tolerate disturbances and rioting,” said Prime Minister Netanyahu. “We will act against those who throw stones, block roads and call for the establishment of a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel.
Whoever does not honor Israeli law will be punished with utmost severity.”
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who previously has called on all Israeli citizens to sign a loyalty oath, specifically backed the Public Security Minister Yitzhack Aharonovich, who is responsible for the police.
Netanyahu is sounding more like Avigdor Lieberman every day, perhaps another sign that elections are not so far away.
