The terrorist attack which left an Israeli man dead on the eve of Passover has re-ignited calls from within Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s party to take a tougher approach to peace talks with the Palestinians.

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon told Israel Radio on Wednesday that Netanyahu should order Israeli negotiators not to meet with their Palestinian counterparts – as they are scheduled to do later on in the evening – until the Palestinian Authority officially issues a condemnation of the killing.
