Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett told his Knesset faction on Monday that attacks on Jewish residents of the Negev at the hands of Beduin should be likened to so-called "price tag" incidents committed by West Bank settlers against Palestinians.

Bennett was responding to a recent statement by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who came out in support of applying the term "terrorism" to instances of vandalism committed by Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria.

The party chief said that he is opposed to such a move, and that the government would be better off seeking to protect farmers and agrarians in the Negev who he says have been victimized by Beduin violence and theft.

"These are the real Zionists," Bennett said referring to the Negev residents. "We must enforce Israeli law in the Negev."
