Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Bayit Yehudi) praised the cabinet decision to outlaw the controversial Islamic Movement's northern branch, which has often been accused of fomenting violence in the region.

In a statement on Tuesday, Bennett said, "From Paris To Jerusalem, there is one war on terror. The State of Israel moves from words to action: We are destroying terrorists' homes, cancelling residency statuses, and this morning we outlawed [the northern branch of] the Islamic Movement."

The Minister continued, "Israel leads the free world against radical Islam. We don't try to explain terrorism, and we don't talk with terrorists - we fight terror with a strong hand - and we will win."
