Amir Peretz will convene a meeting of his "forum of generals and admirals" Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. to discuss Labor's reaction to Monday morning's suicide bombing in a Netanya mall that killed 5 and wounded 66. Former prime minister and IDF chief of staff Ehud Barak, former Mossad chief Danny Yatom, former head of the IDF's Civil Administration in the West Bank Ephraim Sneh, Brig-Gen. (res.) Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, former commander of the navy and head of the Israel Security Agency Ami Ayalon and former Jerusalem Police chief Aryeh Amit are all members of the forum. In response to the bombing, Peretz said that "we must conduct a war without compromise against terror, which is the enemy of democracy, peace and Israeli society." He vowed that Israel "will continue in the struggle against the attackers and those who send them."
