Too many Jewish lives have been lost to terror. Constant surrender to terror – ceasefires – will only do damage to the security of Israel in the long run.
That was the crux of former Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s argument nearly six weeks ago when he resigned in response to another ceasefire with militants in Gaza. It was also the breaking point of a government about to collapse.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the parties in his coalition decided to disperse the Knesset this week and hold an early general election on April 9.
PM Netanyahu said now that the urgent security matter of the Hezbollah terror tunnels has been dealt with, proceeding with early elections is possible.
