Former public security minister MK Avi Dichter (Kadima) released a statement Sunday evening in response to the arrest of alleged Jewish terrorist Yaakov Teitel.
"Someone who does not hesitate to carry out a terror attack against one in opposition to political or social ideology starts off with a dummy bomb, moves to a real bomb and finishes off shooting to kill," the statement read.
"The terrorist who planted the bomb at the entrance to Prof. Ze'ev Sternhell's house tried to kill him. Anyone who does not condemn that act becomes a supporter of the terrorist and his actions."
Dichter added that on the anniversary of the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, addressing the issue of political violence is of utmost important.
