Fmr. Netanyahu chief of staff Bennett: Hamas must be 'dismantled'

A cease-fire appears to be holding at this hour between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, while the international community waits to see if the two sides can agree on a long-term solution. The agreement follows eight days of air strikes from Israel and rockets from Gaza, taking nearly 150 lives, most of them Palestinian. Talks are set to begin today on easing economic restrictions on Gaza as part of the truce.

Joining “Starting Point” live from Tel Aviv with the latest is Naftali Bennett, former Chief of Staff to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and current Chairman of the "Jewish Home" Israeli Political Party. He explains that in his view, peace can't be achieved until Hamas is 'dismantled.'
