Common sense from Lieberman cut in half

Israel enjoys a Kafkaesque situation when terrorists released from our jails receive welfare benefits for the time they spent there. A while ago, Lieberman’s party tabled a bill to deny them any such benefits.

After the Justice Ministry vetoed that draft, Lieberman came out with a nominally constitutional draft which halves the benefits. It is patently absurd to pay them any benefits, but at least there would be a statement.

Curiously, Arab MKs decried the new legislation as racist. True, our terrorists are Arabs.
