Bennett: PA Government Made Up of 'Terrorists in Suits'

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 | Worthy News / Israel-Palestinian Conflict


(Times of Israel / Worthy News)-- The swearing in of a new Palestinian unity government on Monday elicited strong reactions from Israeli leaders, with right-wing cabinet ministers condemning the alliance of "terrorists in suits," and centrists urging a more cautious approach.

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) set the tone for many, insisting that Hamas's support for the Palestinian Authority government meant that "the prospect of a Palestinian state ran into the wall of reality today. It's time to switch from defense to the attack and do what is good for Israel."

He said the new administration was "a government of terrorists in suits" and called it "an illegitimate government." On his Facebook page, Bennett quoted anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist passages from the Hamas charter, asking, "So is there someone out there that still thinks that this is a partner?"
