Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday called for the government to deny residency to those living in east Jerusalem who are involved in terrorist activity, ahead of an emergency meeting called by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss the recent escalation of terrorist attacks.
Liberman said in a statement that he expects several particular decisions to be clearly made by the security cabinet. He said that no terrorist should survive a terrorist attack, Israel should adopt the United States open-fire regulations and deny residency to those in east Jerusalem involved in terrorism.
Israel should also "begin using emergency law and institute a military government everywhere it is necessary to eradicate terrorism," he said.
"I remind the prime minister and cabinet members: words do not stop terrorists. Security is gained through an iron fist."
