PM Netanyahu on MKs` meeting with families of terrorists: ”There`s a limit”
”We are in favor of integrating Israel`s Arab citizens into society, but we are not willing to accept a situation in which lawmakers support the families of people who murder Israeli citizens,” the prime minister told the plenum.

Yesteryear
8/2/1982
The Knesset marks 100 years of Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture Simha Erlich says: ”The Jewish settlement, the Jewish village, the kibbutz and the moshav gave us not just the correct structure of a country that sits on its land, but also renewed the connection of the Jewish nation to its heritage, the Land of Israel. It is no longer a land which people come to in order to die in, and in which they live off Halukka funds, but a land that they come to in order to live in, to build a house, to raise a Jewish nation different from the one that existed in the Diaspora - a nation that lives by its work and sees a return for its labor.”
