Terrorists = The Death Penalty
On Wednesday, Israel’s Knesset saw 52 MKs vote against the proposed Death penalty for terrorist law while 33 MKs voted in favour of the bill passing.
Naftali Bennett was amongst those who voted against the bill. No surprises there. However, Avigdor Liberman also voted against the controversial bill and instructed his party to vote against it. This would come as a surprise if we were not familiar with Liberman’s record of dumping his long-held commitments when those commitments get in the way of his self-serving political agenda.
Liberman proves once again he is a shallow, power-broking, high-political schemer who, like a man trapped in his house struck by an earthquake, sees the solid framework of his existence cracking and crumbling. In such circumstances, this man is no longer amenable to the arguments of reason. In such circumstances, this man entertains extravagant hopes while tilting at windmills in the sky. Enough time has been spent on this political dinosaur. He is not going anywhere except to the dustbin of history.
As for the bill, it had inestimable merit in legislating Israel’s intent to defend its citizens from repeat offenders and draw a red line in the sand. No more coddling, educating and feeding vicious murderers to eventually be released back into the community at large where they are free to hunt down Jewish men, women and children at will.
That’s the essence of the defeated proposed bill. The 52 MKs who voted to defeat the bill have sentenced Israel’s citizens to a life and death struggle with the malignant Arab nationalist cause.
If there is a ray of light, its to be found in the fact that Itamar Ben Gvir (Otzma Yehudit ) and (May Golan (Likud), along with the other 31 MKs who voted for the bill, have shown courage and audacity, giving hope to the next generation to never give in to appeasement of any kind what so ever.
‘Hadar Yehudit !’
