Father of late IDF soldier: Netanyahu has turned us into suckers

Simcha Goldin, the father of late IDF soldier Hadar Goldin whose body is held by Hamas since Operation Protective Edge, said to the Army Radio that "the Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] has turned us into a country of suckers, and in the Middle East it is very dangerous to be a sucker."
During a demonstration in Kerem Shalom near the Gaza border on Wednesday, Goldin added that "there are a lot of people here who stop the trucks, mainly trucks belonging to merchants. There are residents from all over the country."
"The Prime Minister is knowingly endangering IDF soldiers and civilians," he said, "because Hamas has not paid anything for its behavior in abducting a soldier."
"If they had signed a ceasefire agreement and demanded and received the soldiers, which the Prime Minister promised, the picture would have looked different. We would not look like suckers. The situation is getting worse from week to week," he added.
