Otzma Yehudit MK Limor Son Har-Melech suggests that the punishment for Arab murderers should be different from the punishment for Jewish murderers.

“[A Jew] who kills an Arab needs to sit in prison until the end of his life,” Son Har-Melech says an interview with Ynet radio. “[An Arab] who kills a Jew needs to die.”

Son Har-Melech, whose husband was killed in a terror attack in 2003, says that “any terrorist who kills a Jew for nationalist reasons opposes the existence of the State of Israel and cannot be a citizen of the state.”

She made the comments after a key Knesset panel gave a green light to fast-track bills seeking to revoke the Israeli citizenship or residency of convicted terrorists who receive payment from the Palestinian Authority for their actions.
