Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has fired his deputy defense minister for publicly criticizing as too soft the government's decisions in its ongoing battle with Islamist militants in the Gaza Strip.
"Lunacy." That's how Danny Danon describes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to hand over 104 killers to the Palestinian Authority as a "good-will gesture."

An Israeli lawmaker says Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry likely will visit Israel in October or November.
The aid convoy for Gaza organized in May 2010 was a humanitarian initiative with people from more than 30 countries (including the United States and Israel) in ships sailing under the flags of several nations.

Quite the contrary.
Donald Trump threatened a third-party presidential run, Herman Cain and Israeli lawmaker Danny Danon stirred up the crowd, and Jon Huntsman Jr. and Tim Pawlenty got polite receptions at the second annual Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington.
"Building will begin there tomorrow afternoon and continue there on Monday," Mr. Danon said.
"For 10 months, you have been treated as second-class citizens," said Danny Danon, a pro-settler lawmaker in Mr. Netanyahu's Likud Party, at the rally at Revava in the West Bank. "Today, we return to build in all the Land of Israel."
