2. SOUNDBITE (Hebrew) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister:
"Whoever thought that the horrible murder of a resident of Havat Gilad, a father of six, would break our spirit and weaken us made a grave mistake. The government today will legalise the status of Havat Gilad to allow the continuation of normal life there. To the murderers - we will exact justice. To those who sanctify death, we sanctify life. That is the gist of the government's policy."

5. SOUNDBITE (Hebrew) Naftali Bennett, Israeli Minister of Education:
"Just as we wouldn't accept Hezbollah having a nuclear weapon, we won't allow at any cost for Hezbollah to arm itself with dozens of accurate missiles. After the second Lebanon war, Nasrallah said that if he had known what Israel's reaction would have been he would not have kidnapped the soldiers. So this time we are doing him a service and telling him in advance: 'Know this, we will not allow this armament to happen and the price that you will make the residents of Lebanon and south Lebanon pay will be very steep.'"
Israel's prime minister said on Sunday his country will legalise an isolated West Bank outpost in response to the murder of one of its residents.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday that those who try to "break our spirit and weaken us made a grave mistake."
He said his government will legalise Havat Gilad to "allow the continuation of normal life there."
Earlier this month, Havat Gilad resident, Rabbi Raziel Shevah, a 35-year-old father of six, was shot dead from a passing vehicle as he drove near his home in the unauthorized settlement outpost near Nablus.
The community of a few hundred Israelis is located deep inside the West Bank.
The anti-settlement Peace Now group said the effort to legalise it was a "cynical exploitation of the murder."
