Justice Minister Ya’akov Ne’eman has proposed to increase punishment on actions defined as “terrorism”. In his proposal, the minimum penalty for terror-related crimes will be 40 years in prison, as opposed to 30 years today. In addition, setting minimum term for a terror convict shall only be possible after 15 years, as opposed to 7 years today. Some convicts shall be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. According to the proposition, a crime shall be defined as “terror” by 3 criteria: the motive, the goal, and the characteristics of the crime.
