As Predicted, Ayelet “Little Snakes” Shaked is calling for “death penalty for Jewish Terrorists ”

Quick post. Just wanted to update regarding part of the piece I wrote last week in +972 Magazine, ”Why the Left must oppose administrative detention for Jewish terrorists.” 

In it, I wrote:

”The outrage flowing from the halls of the Knesset following the murders of Ali Saad Dawabshe and Mohammad Abu Khdeir may have been genuine, but it clearly was not simple outrage over the killing of an unarmed Palestinian child. It was outrage at the young men who dare to commit violence against Palestinians whilse wearing colors that are not olive green. In fact, I would not be wholly astonished to hear a politician or two suggesting that a recent draft law seeking to implement a death sentence for terrorists, be applied to Jewish terrorists as well.”

It took less than a week for my prediction to come true. This evening, I saw a headline that read:

”Justice minister backs death penalty for terrorists who killed Palestinian baby.” 

The Justice Minister is none other than Ayelet Shaked, who last summer wrote a tract on Facebook in which she essentially declared war with all Palestinians and called Palestinian babies “little snakes.”

Her full Facebook post read as follows:

“Behind every terrorist stand dozens of men and women, without whom he could not engage in terrorism. Actors in the war are those who incite in mosques, who write the murderous curricula for schools, who give shelter, who provide vehicles, and all those who honor and give them their moral support. They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there.”
