Ashkelon mayor Benny Vaknin: There is no government in Israel

"Is there a government in Israel? I think not, I'm looking for one," Ashkelon Mayor Benny Vaknin said in an interview to Israel Radio Sunday afternoon. Vaknin stressed the danger to which Ashkelon's populace is exposed, and called on the government to react to Gaza fire. "Did you know that in Ashkelon there are [over] 30,000 students with no rocket shields? Not to mention the dozens of thousands of unprotected residents… I think the government should announce that every rocket fired at Ashkelon would have such a price tag, that [terrorists] would think many times before firing… [the government's reaction would be] harsh and decisive." "We cannon continue playing Russian roulette here," he added.
