Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Otniel on Tuesday morning and slammed the Palestinian Authority for the incitement that propelled a 15-year-old boy to murder a 38-year-old mother of six.

“There is on the one side humanity and a desire for coexistence, and on the other side boundless hatred,” he said, after paying a shiva call on the family of Dafna Meir, murdered on Sunday by the 15-year-old terrorist arrested earlier in the day.

“That hatred has an address,” Netanyahu said. “It is the incitement of the Palestinian Authority and other actors such as the Islamic Movement and Hamas. The time has come for the international community to stop its hypocrisy and to call the child by its name.”

Netanyahu, accompanied on his visit by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, said the root of the conflict is the Palestinian refusal to “recognize the right to the Jews to have a state in any borders – here, in Tel Aviv, anywhere,” he said. He said this “truth” must be told to the world, and that in the end “the truth will win out.”

In addition to meeting with the Meier family, Netanyahu and Ya'alon received a security briefing from senior IDF officials and met with the head of the Hebron Hills regional Council, Yohai Damari.
