PM: Ze'evi understood when to use force

At a Mount Hertzel ceremony marking 10 years since the assassination of former tourism minister Rehavam  Ze'evi, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that Zeevi "understood that in circumstances that threaten our nation's existence, we have no choice but to wield a sword."
"He understood that nobody will protect the Jews if they won't protect themselves. He was right in the need to wield a sword in the face of enemies," Netanyahu continued.
Ze'evi, known for his controversial advocacy of "transferring" Palestinians out of Israel, was assassinated in 2001 by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
