Bennett slams Kerry's Israel boycott remarks

February 1, 2014 20:26

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett criticized US Secretary of State John Kerry's remarks Saturday regarding the possibility of an economic boycott of Israel if peace negotiations fail.

"No nation has ever given up its land because of economic threats and we won't either," stated Bennett.

"Only security will bring economic stability, not a terror state near Ben Gurion Airport," he added. "We expect our friends in the world to stand by us during attempts at an anti-Semitic boycott of Israel, instead of being their megaphone."

"Either way, we knew in the past and know today how to stand strong," Bennett warned.
