Netanyahu: We’ll Wait for Attorney General’s Opinion on Deportations


Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the weekly cabinet meeting that he expects to receive an answer in the coming days from the attorney general regarding his proposal to expel families of terrorists to Gaza.

Netanyahu revealed that Israel is acting against the social media networks that are inciting murder of Israelis and Jews. “At the weekend, I spoke with French President Francois Hollande. Previously, I asked him to ban the French broadcasts of al-Aqsa, and the satellite program was taken down, but then reappeared via a different satellite. We are working in other ways as well to stop them.”

Over the weekend, the IDF closed down the broadcasting station of Islamic Jihad in Ramallah that propagandized against Israel. “There is no question here of freedom of the press,” said Netanyahu, “but a matter of stopping incitement to murder.

“At the same time, we are advancing a fast-track bill to punish those who employ illegal workers, or transport or lodge them. You have to understand that a large percentage of the terrorists have been people who were in the country illegally.”
