Economy Minister Naftali Bennett responded to recent chatter about the threat of boycotts againt Israel saying at his Bayit Yehudi party's faction meeting on Monday that "the Jewish people are stronger than the threats. We won't give in to scare tactics."
"They're trying to crush our spirit, but we'll win. How? By telling the truth over and over again," Bennett stated.
Bennett also rejected Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat's recent assertion that Palestinians have been present in the area longer than Jews.
"The Bible all Christians and Muslims believe is true, it says God gave this land to us, the Jewish People," he stated.
