Abu Jamil, whose husband was shot dead by police after he carried out the attack, was living in Israel as part of the family reunification process that allows non-Israeli spouses of Israelis to legally live in Israel. She will now need to leave Israel and will not be eligible for any social benefits accrued during her stay in the country.

“I have ordered the revocation of Nadia Abu Jamil’s permit,” Erdan said, according to Israel Hayom. “Anyone involved in terrorism should take into account that doing so could have negative implications for their families.”

“I have instructed the Interior Ministry employees to examine and recommend ways of expanding my authority as interior minister to revoke the permanent residency statuses and social benefits enjoyed by residents of east Jerusalem who encourage terrorism and incite to violence,” Erdan added.

    It is just great and about time that Netanyahu wants to
    demolish the homes of the terrorists and expel their
    families. But he has a very strong opposition in Tzipi
    Livni, who is a Jewish Israeli Liberal.
    She also does not want to call Israel a
    Jewish State, and refuses to expel from the Knesset the
    Arab MKs who incite terror and side with the enemy. I do
    not understand the reasoning of those liberals. I only know that it is anti Israel anti Jewish and without any
    logic. I think she is only doing this – oppose Netanyahu
    because she wants to become the next Prime Minister of Israel, “Has ve Halila”. Netanyahu should call for new
    elections and get rid of her – she is endangering the
    future of the Jewish State and the Israeli Jews.
