Hotovely: Death to the MurderersNissan 14, 5771, 18 April 11 12:12 (Israelnationalnews.com)
MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) said on Sunday that Israel should sentence the murderers of the Fogel family in Itamar to death, something which is allowed by Israel's military court. Hotovely added that she also believes that Israel should work to change the legislation to allow such punishment even in civil courts.
She said that trying the murderers in a military would be a moral statement to the world and to Israel that such terrorists will not be released from prison.
"This is a basic need, and has nothing to do with revenge," said Hotovely.
