Jerusalem Post – Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday responded to reports that Israel is considering releasing Palestinian security prisoners as a gesture to restart peace talks, saying that he would “not free one murderer in exchange for the right to sit with Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas].”

Speaking in an interview with Army Radio, Bennett made it clear that he would not allow “those who murdered Jews” to be released, but refused to pronounce that he would leave the coalition over such a decision. “I don’t make political declarations, I act when the time comes.”

The Bayit Yehudi leader stated that he is “convinced” that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would not “allow the release of murderers.”
