Right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir strongly criticized Prime Minister Netanyahu in the wake of media reports on Thursday that the prime minister asked the Hamas terrorist organization to avoid an escalation due to the upcoming elections, saying, "Day to day Netanyahu is cheapening the blood of Israeli citizens more and more.""If until now, Netanyahu has kowtowed to the hundreds of rockets fired at Israel, and even agreed to transfer protection money to Hamas for a mock peace, we now have reached a new low: the prime minister is haggling over the blood of Israeli citizens," Ben-Gvir said.Ben-Gvir also criticized Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett, "When Bennett refrained from overthrowing the government, he excused it by saying 'Netanyahu promised a change in security policy.' Naftali Bennett and Bayit Yehudi are guilty of the current situation no less than the prime minister.""Only a month ago, at the dramatic press conference convened by Netanyahu, he said that it was a sensitive period from a security standpoint, and that it wasn't the time to topple a right-wing government," Ben-Gvir added. ""Today it's clear to all that this was another spin of Netanyahu's creation. "We must understand that the Likud and Netanyahu are implementing the policies of Tamar Zandberg and Meretz.""A government that negotiates the blood of its citizens has no right to exist," Ben-Gvir concluded.
