"Israel has sought peace since its establishment, while the Palestinians have ceaselessly engaged in incitement," Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said in a press briefing in Nativ Haasara Thursday, adding that the Palestinians must desist from acts of
incitement, such as calling a square after the terrorist Dalal Mughrabi.

Speaking after a Kassam rocket fell in Nativ Haasara earlier, killing a Thai worker, Ayalon told the Jerusalem Post that he immediately visited the attacked kibbutz to assure them that the government will do the utmost to keep its citizens safe.

The deputy foreign minister also answered questions about the Iron Dome system for self defense against short range rockets.

“The Israeli government and Ministry of Defense is doing whatever they can, irrespective of today, to move forward with the Iron Dome and all the other multilayered protection.”

Ayalon went on to refer to the Goldstone report, "this report is morally and professionally wrong. It grants terrorists impunity, aid and succor and tries to take away democracies' right to self-defense. With or without it Israel will continue to defend its citizens. I call
on anyone who supported the report to come see its repercussions on the ground."
