(And if I were the Justice Minister, who had declared time and time again my interest in achieving peace, I would maintain my opposition to such legislative incitement).

If I were Prime Minister, I would resign and take to the streets, realizing that this system is broken, and that the greatest obstacles to peace and security for all come from within the halls of the Knesset.
