Israeli Defense Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir praised Baruch Goldstein, the settler who killed 29 Palestinian worshipers and injured more than 100 others at the Al-Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron in 1994, Safa News Agency reported Friday.
Ben-Gvir appeared in a video dating back to 1994 published by an Israeli Channel 12 praising Goldstein, calling for more massacres against the Palestinians and for all Palestinians in Israel to be sent to other Arab countries.
In the video, Ben-Gvir also encourages carrying weapons, shooting Palestinians and shedding their blood.
Ben-Gvir, the leader of the Otzma Yehudit party, began his political career at a young age as a member of the Kach party, founded by the extremist rabbi Meir Kahane.
