Leftist MK Rages Against Building as Response to Terror

MK Yoel Hasson (Zionist Union) raged on Wednesday against right-wing politicians and religious leaders who called for building in Judea and Samaria to serve as the answer to terror attacks. 

Particularly incurring Hasson's wrath was the head of the pre-military academy in Eli, prominent religious-Zionist Rabbi Eli Sadan, who argued Wednesday that "for every attack, there must be confirmed, within 24 hours, 200 new housing units."

"This government wants to drown Israel in a swamp of terrorism," Hasson shouted at the Knesset plenum. "You want to build settlements for every attack? Have you gone crazy?"

"You don't understand terror," Hasson continued, turning his eyes to MK Yinon Magal of Jewish Home, who provoked criticism on Tuesday night by suggesting the Arab nation "only brings to the world blood."

"You're endangering the State of Israel," Hasson charged. 

Earlier on Wednesday, demonstrators began gathering outside the Prime Minister's Residence in protest of the wave of terror targeting the Binyamin region, most recently the murder of Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld in a shooting attack near Shvut Rachel on Monday night. 

Critically injured in the attack, Rosenfeld succumbed to his wounds on Tuesday evening at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. Thousands attended his funeral in Kokhav HaShahar late Wednesday morning. 

A full-scale protest against terror and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's security policies will be held outside the Prime Minister's Residence at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday night.
