‘If Boston can execute an Islamic terrorist, so should Israel’

Yisrael Beytenu chief Avigdor Liberman vowed Saturday that he would not join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition until there were changes to the government’s guidelines – specifically the inclusion of a pledge that Israel would adopt a law mandating the death penalty for anyone convicted of terrorism.

“Even liberals understand that terrorists deserve the death penalty,” Liberman wrote on his Facebook page Saturday evening.

To back his argument, Liberman cited the recent decision by a US federal jury to sentence Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a co-accomplice in the bombing of the Boston Marathon in 2013, to death.
