MK Yoel Hasson (Zionist Union) read aloud the names of the 34 people killed by terrorists in the recent wave of terror, in a speech in the Knesset Wednesday.

"Too many people have lost their lives; 34 people lost their lives," Hasson lamented, calling them victims of the "Third Intifada."

The opposition MK blamed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he is making Israelis unsafe because of the lack of an agreement with the Palestinians.

"He's creating a fence that fences in Palestinians with us, in Israel," Hasson lamented. "His running away from decisions is costing us lives."

According to Hasson, Netanyahu is "doing nothing, because he knows that in return for fighting terrorism, the world will demand that he negotiate [with the Palestinians], and that scares him more than terrorism."
