Zionist Union MK calls out Jewish Home chief for terrorist aide

Zionist Union MK Yoel Hasson writes on Facebook that Education Minister Naftali Bennett’s political adviser is a convicted terrorist and calls on Bennett to fire him.

Nathan Nathanson, he writes, “was a member of the Jewish Underground who tried to murder the then-mayor of Nablus with explosives and led to his severe injury and amputation of his legs.”

Nathanson was convicted in 1985 for involvement in the Jewish Underground and taking part in three car bombings against Palestinian mayors in June 1980. He was sentenced to three years in prison.

Hasson notes that Nathanson has “a permanent entry permit to the Knesset as the political adviser of Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett. He’s the whisperer in his ear, a regular visitor to the corridors of the Knesset and takes part each week in the meetings of the Jewish Home party.

“Let’s go, Naftali, show us your true intentions and throw out the terrorist you’ve placed at your side. Deal with the bad seeds in your garden without apologizing,” continues Hasson. “Because if you don’t do it now, in another five years the terrorists from Duma will be sitting in the Knesset.”
