Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the cabinet on Sunday that when he spoke with surviving members of the Fogel family, who were murdered overnight Friday in the settlement of Itamar, that he heard the children crying.

"I heard the crying of the grandchildren who were left alive," he said.

Netanyahu added, "They told me: 'Mr. Prime Minister, May God give you strength and wisdom to protect the people of Israel at this time.'"

The prime minister also criticized the Palestinian Authority for what he called its incitement to terrorism. "Giving scholarships to the families of terrorists and naming [city] squares after them, that is not 'education for peace.'"
