The Israeli right-wing minister of Education, MK Naftali Bennett on Wednesday said that “[Israelis] should have killed more [Arabs],” in response to the Arab MK, Hanin Zoabi’s condemnations of boasting about killing innocent civilians.
Bennet’s statement came during the cabinet meeting, where MK Hanin Zoabi from the Joint Arab List, tackled the ongoing Israeli slaughter of Palestinians and praising these murders by some MKs and ministers.
Bennett immediately accused Zoabi of lying, then said that more Palestinians should have been killed, adding that “Anyone who lifts a hand against Israel must die.”
Since the beginning of October this year, about 90 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers and settlers in the wake of the Palestinian uprising.
18 of the victims were children, four were girls, and the majority under the age of 19.
On the Israeli side, 16 soldiers and settlers have been killed. At least four of them were shot-dead by Israeli forces by mistake, because they looked like Arabs.
