As Middle East peace talks are set to resume after a five-year freeze, 972 Magazine reports a member of Israel’s cabinet has declared his backing for simply killing Palestinian prisoners, rather than bringing them to trial.
On Sunday, Israel announced it would release 104 Palestinian prisoners, a key caveat in the John Kerry-brokered plan to renew peace talks.
But according to the 972 report, Israel’s minister of Industry, Trade and Labor and Jewish Home Party leader Naftali Bennett could not have disagreed more, proposing during Sunday’s cabinet meeting a swifter, but illegal way to deal with prisoners.
“If you catch terrorists, you have to simply kill them,” (speaking of Palestinians), Bennett allegedly said, according to a report in the Hebrew-language print edition of Yedioth Ahronoth.
Israeli National Security Adviser Ya’akov Amidror allegedly responded by saying that such a practice was illegal. Bennett then reportedly declared…
“I’ve killed lots of Arabs in my life – there’s no problem with that.”
A former IDF officer, the right-wing Bennett briefly joined protesters against the decision to release prisoners before attending Sunday’s cabinet meeting. According to The Jewish Press, prior to Sunday’s vote, Bennett said…
“Terrorists” (Palestinians), “should be killed, not released.”
Peace talks are slated to begin in Washington on Monday, though both sides remain skeptical about the commitment to resolving the decades-long stalemate.

On January 6, 2009, Yonotan Schapira, a former Captain in the Israeli Air Force, spoke with the BBC about “War Crimes” committed by Israel.
“As Jewish people, we know, you cannot kill the desire of the people to be free.”
“My government … thinks they can kill the desire of millions of people to be free, it’s complete insanity.”
“They (the Palestinians), have been trapped in this open air prison for decades and they cannot eat, they cannot have medicine, they cannot go in, they cannot go out. We lock them there in a big ghetto, and we have to put the words in a very clear context, we are locking this one and a half million people for so long and we treat them as animals, and this is the result.”
