If "Bugie" Herzog and Tzipi Livni will lead Israel, Hamastan will be established in Judea and Samaria, said Defense Minister Moseh Ya'alon on Sunday.

He made these remarks at the Sami Shamoon College of Engineering (SCE) in Beer Sheba to a group of students participating in the "Magshimim" national cyber program, aimed at providing youth in the periphery with tools to serve in IDF elite technological units.

“What Livni did in her appeal to the Americans is inherently wrong, because you do not involve foreign officials in Israeli political matters,” said Ya’alon, referring to the Foreign Policy report that Livni advised US Secretary of State John Kerry to stall on the Palestinian bid at the United Nations.

“We all realize that if Tzipi Livni and ‘Bugie’ Herzog were in power, long ago we would have had Hamastan in Judea and Samaria,” he said.

The minister was in Beer Sheba to unveil the launch of a new agreement signed between the Defense Ministry and the Rashi Foundation, a leading philanthropic organization assisting the underprivileged, to expand the cyber program to include over 2,500 young students over the next five years.

As part of the new agreement, students from the socio-economic periphery, such as Ethiopian, ultra-Orthodox, Druze, and the disabled populations will for the first time, be able to take part in the cyber program.
