Former IDF general Zvika Fogel, a new MK from far-right Otzma Yehudit, tells Army Radio that Israel has lost its deterrent capability against Palestinian terrorism.

Fogel, a former head of the IDF southern command, says Likud should accelerate coalition talks, finalize terms with partners such as his party, and get the new government into office so that it can tackle terror more effectively.

When it comes to tackling terror and restoring deterrence, “if a single Jewish mother is crying, or 1,000 Palestinian mothers, better that 1,000 Palestinian mothers cry,” he says.
