Moshe Feiglin: Revoke Citizenship of Terrorists
“My heart goes out to the family of the person murdered in the terror attack in Jerusalem and I pray for the full recovery of the injured,” said MK Moshe Feiglin after the attack on Wednesday.
MK Feiglin noted that he has warned time and again that relinquishing Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount would lead to an escalation of violence. “Just last week, he said, “I warned that closing the Temple Mount to Jews in the wake of the assassination attempt on Rabbi Yehuda Glick and the rapid return to the routine discrimination against Jews there would encourage more murderousness. When terror is rewarded, it is also empowered.”
Feiglin pointed out that the terrorists in Jerusalem are usually Israeli citizens. “It is unthinkable that those who attempt to destroy our state bear Israeli citizenship and enjoy all its benefits,” he said. “I intend to propose a bill that will revoke the citizenship of those who engage in any violent act with intent to assault the State of Israel as a Jewish state.”
