Erdan: Criticism of government response to Jerusalem violence helps our enemies

MKs argued over how the government should respond to the recent increase of violence in Jerusalem, with many in the opposition arguing that live fire will not effectively stop rock-throwing during a emergency Knesset session Monday.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan took opposition MKs to task for blaming the situation on the government’s policies, pointing to the long history of terrorism against Jews in Israel.

"Do you think Israeli citizens’ memories are erased after every election, like there’s a delete button, and you can convince them that the violence started in this term and comes from not accepting Yesh Atid’s plan of a regional peace conference, or because of a lack of peace and a diplomatic horizon as [Meretz MK Tamar] Zandberg said?" Erdan wondered.
