If Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog headed the government he would have more global backing than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fight Palestinian terrorism, settler leader Avi Ro’eh said.
“I think it would receive greater support from the international community and so it could take harsher steps,” said Ro’eh who heads the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea and Samaria.
He made his comments in an interview with Channel 2 that was shot on Friday at the Gush Etzion junction in the West Bank, where four people lost their lives in Palestinian terror attacks in the last nine days.
It was aired on Saturday night. Herzog, who is the opposition leader, immediately responded on Facebook and included to the interview.
“Avi Ro’eh is right. I would be harsher and handle the terrorism better,” Herzog said.
