The Knesset´s Labor and Welfare Committee approved on Monday a bill
sponsored by MKs David Rotem and Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beitenu) that
cuts by half the National Insurance benefits to terrorists who are
citizens of Israel.
Terrorists who served at least ten years in jail will lose half of
the benefits for unemployment, disability, old age, work accidents
"While everyone in Israel talks about elections, in Yisrael Beitenu
we are working as usual and fulfilling the promises we gave the
citizens of Israel – citizenship means loyalty, and the absurd
situation in which the state of Israel takes money from everyone´s
pockets to pay those who hurt and murdered Israeli citizens will
cease," MK Rotem said.
"To my regret, because of a veto by the Justice Ministry, we will not
be taking away all of the payments to terrorists, as we demanded in
the original bill."
MK Afu Agbaria (Hadash) attacked MK Rotem in the course of the debate
and said: "You are a terrorist yourself; you undermine the laws of
the state." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/30/12)
