Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to the Salomon family who lost three family members in a terrorist attack last week in their home in Halamish and reportedly told them he believed the killer deserves to be executed. 

"It is time to implement the death penalty for terrorists," Netanyahu was quoted as saying to the family. "It is already in the law book, requiring a unanimous decision by the judges. But they want to know where the government stands. My position as prime minister is that in this case, with such a loathsome killer, he needs to be executed. Simple. So that he doesn't smile anymore."
