Itamar Ben Gvir scoffs Netanyahu on death penalty bill

Right wing activist and attorney Itamar Ben Gvir said that "the Prime Minister's statement supporting the death penalty for terrorists, including Jews is a miserable statement. The death penalty is intended for deterrence and in the instance of Jews, there is no need

for deterrence because there is no such phenomenon. The actions of a few Jews, who strongly deny the charges against them and confessed only due to torture, even if their guilt is proven, it is not considered terror."

 

He added: "The attempt to compare Jews and Arabs for the sake of comparison is a populist move and it is unfortunate that the Prime Minister of Israel cannot differentiate."
