Education Minister Naftali Bennett responded Monday to the IDF's interception of a Gaza bound flotilla, saying that Israel would continue to defend itself and it would prevail. 

"From flotilla to flotilla the Palestinians remind us that they are not a partner for peace but rather a partner for terror, whether from the sea, sky or over land," Bennett said.

Using sea terminology, Bennett said that, along with the flotilla, the chance for the Palestinians to achieve statehood has "also sunk to the depths."

Bennett said the Palestinians have, against their children's will,  turned them into accessories of terror instead of investing in their education.
