Liberman, Charles Barkley share admiration for Jordan’s King Abdullah

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday joined former basketball star Charles Barkley in praising Jordan’s King Abdullah for killing two terrorists after Islamic State burned to death a Jordanian pilot.

Liberman, at a speech at the annual Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv, said that Israel must change the way it deals with terrorism, and pledged that his party – after the upcoming election – will initiate a law calling for the death penalty for terrorists.

The foreign minister slammed Israel’s policy toward terrorist organizations over the decades, saying that instead of “building an iron wall,” it has –through a series of prisoner releases – both given the terrorist organizations hope and strengthened them.
