Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu condemned the acts of "lawbreakers" in light of violent demonstrations that took place across the country Saturday in protest of the controversial Prawer Plan to resettle Beduin in the Negev, and charged that the legislation would be advanced.

“We will bring to justice those who broke the law and we will not suffer from such disturbances," the premier said while disusing the "Day of Rage" riots with Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitz and Police Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino.

"The attempts by a vocal and violent minority to prevent a better future for the greater population is severe," he stated. "We will continue to advance the bill to create a better future for all residents of the Negev."
