Economy Minister Naftali Bennett called to take away terrorists' residence status on Channel 2's "Meet the Press" Saturday night.

"Today, whoever commits a suicide attack goes to 'heaven.' His family gets an allowance [from the Palestinian Authority] and they're residents of Israel. We need to change the equation – destroy his house on the same day and not three months later and take away his [National Insurance] allowance and resident status. We need to put Border Patrol forces in [Arab neighborhoods] permanently. Then I want to see the mother who sends her son [to be a terrorist] when she knows all that," Bennett stated.

The Bayit Yehudi chairman pointed out that Arab terrorism against Jews in Israel began 120 years ago, and not in 1967.

"Enough already! We can defeat terrorism if we stop being defensive and move to the offensive," he declared.
