In Breach of Human Rights, Netanyahu Supports Death Penalty against Palestinians | Opinion | teleSUR English: Netanyahu’s decision was made on November 4, but the wrangling over the issue has been taking place for some time. The ‘Death Penalty’ bill has been the crying rally for the Israel Beiteinu party, led by ultra-nationalist Israeli politician and current Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman during its 2015 election campaign.
