The deadly Palestinian raid on Netzarim has some Israeli Cabinet ministers saying the future of the Gaza settlement should be debated. “We must not reward violence, but the time has come for the government to hold a discussion on the future of Netzarim,” Justice Minister Yosef “Tommy” Lapid said at Sunday’s Cabinet meeting. Netzarim, a town of 60 families that evolved into a fortified army base after the Palestinian intifada was launched in September 2000, is lodged between Gaza City and several refugee camps to the south.
