A Molotov cocktail was hurled by Palestinians at a police cruiser in Jerusalem’s Abu Tor neighborhood late on Wednesday, lightly wounding one of its occupants, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

Border Guard officers traveling in the vehicle managed to escape before it was engulfed in flames. One of the officers, however, was treated for smoke inhalation.

According to the report, a firefighting team that rushed to the scene to extinguish the flames was attacked by stone throwers. Eventually, the firefighters were able to successfully reach the burning jeep and prevent the fire from spreading to nearby houses. Another vehicle adjacent to the burning jeep, however, caught fire and an electrical pole was damaged.

  • The UN must be dismantled. It is a criminal enterprise.

    As an example of the way in which the principles of pan-Arab national self-determination then applied to Israel, Stone cited:
    a letter dated February 20, 1980 to the Secretary-General, transmitted for UN circulation to the General Assembly and the Security Council in connection with item 26 of A/35/11000-S/13816 (Situation in the Middle East) [which] declared a propos of inclusion in the Charter of a principle of non-use of force:
    “The principle of non-use of force shall apply to the relations of the Arab Nation and Arab States with the nations and countries neighboring the Arab homeland. Naturally, as you know, the Zionist entity is not included, because the Zionist entity is not considered a State, but a deformed entity occupying an Arab territory. It is not covered by these principles.

  • It is time for Israel to take serious action against terror and violence and restore the safety and security of its people without fear of violence, riots, stone throwing and intentional vehicular usage to kill and injure Israelis. Israel must expel all Arabs who commit violence and mayhem.
    Remind the Arabs that they expelled over a million Jews from their counties and confiscated all their assets including land 6 times the size of Israel. That the Arabs must balance the books and pay for the assets and the relocation of the Jews.
    Israel needs to build 100,000 housing units per year in Judea and Samaria for the next 10 years, It also needs to build 3 superhighway connecting Judea and Samaria to Israel.
    Construct military bases in Judea and Samaria to protect the people and the country.
    Israel also needs to build 50,000 housing units per year in greater Jerusalem and build additional roads and highway in and from Jerusalem.
    Israel must also build a minimum of 10,000 housing units in the Galil and 10,000 housing units in the Negev every year for the next ten years and expand the infrastructure, roads and highways. They have to expand industry and commerce to enhance the desire of people to live in the Galil and the Negev.
    Construct military bases in Judea and Samaria to protect the people and the country.
    The Audacity of the Arab countries in demanding territory from the Jewish people in Palestine after they persecuted and ejected over a million Jewish families and their children who have lived in Arab land for over 2,500 years and after they confiscated all their assets and Real estate 6 times the size of Israel (120,440 sq. km. – 75,000 sq. mi.), valued in the trillions of dollars.
    Now the Arab nations are demanding more land and more compensation.
    The Arab countries have chased the million Jewish families and their children and now they want to chase them away again, from their own historical land.

    The Jewish people have suffered enough in the Diaspora for the past 2,500 years. It is time for the Jewish people to live as free people in their own land without violence and terror.
    It is time that we must consider that the only alternative is a population transfer of the Arab-Palestinians to the territories the Arab countries confiscated from the Jewish people and settle this dispute once and for all. Many Arab leaders had suggested these solutions over the years.

    “In Israel; We have to undue and reverse the decades of nonsense that the peace industry has fermented, which led us to the position where the world thinks we the Jews are occupiers in our own ancestral land.
    If something is false and it is repeated enough times it becomes sort of common wisdom. We have to undo that”.

    Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria is Jewish territory – No annexation is required
    If anything it may need to be re-incorporated or re-patriated.
    Let me pose an interesting scenario. If you had a country and it was conquered by foreign powers over a period of time. After many years you have taken back you country and land in various defensive wars. Do you have to officially annex those territories. It was always your territory and by retaking control and possession of your territory it is again your original property and there is no need to annex it. The title to your property is valid today as it was many years before.
    Annexation only applies when you are taking over territory that was never yours to begin with, just like some European countries annexed territories of other countries.

    Jews hold title to the Land of Greater Israel even if outnumbered a million to one.
    The fact that more foreigners than Jews occupied the Land of Israel during certain periods of time does not diminish true ownership. If my house is invaded by a family ten times larger that mine does that obviate my true ownership?

    How many holidays do the Arabs-Muslims celebrate due to historical events in the land of ancient Israel and Jerusalem. r9
    The Jewish people celebrate most of their holidays and fast days in memory of Jerusalem and Israel.
    and the goal and aspiration to return to Israel and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem – where it was before it was destroyed and desecrated by the enemies of the Jews. Many of the Jewish prayers for thousands of years recite the love of Israel and the Jewish aspirations to return to their ancestral land and bring back its glory and holiness.
    At Jewish weddings they break a glass in memory of Jerusalem and the aspiration to return and build the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.
    Every day at the end of the meal the Jews recite a blessing and thank G-d for providing sustenance and beseech G-d to return and rebuild the temple in Jerusalem.
    Most Jewish prayers mention our pleading to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple.

  • Israel – It is your duty and obligation, you must defend your family and citizens against Hamas rockets without constraints or limitations, no-holds-barred, anything less is a dereliction of duty. This applies also to any acts of terror and violence by anyone. No response is strong enough. Anybody who thinks otherwise is committing desertion of family and friends to the atrocities of evil and terror.
    It is up to Israel to defend its people. In the past, history has shown the world stood idle while Jewish people, men, women and children were slaughtered.

    The Law of Return is for The Jews, the option to return to Greater Israel and The Arab-Palestinians to leave Greater Israel and return to the Arab countries they originated from. The Arab-Palestinians should move to the Million plus Jewish homes confiscated by the Arab countries from the persecuted expelled Jewish families and the 120,440 sq. km. of Real property the Arabs confiscated from the million plus Jews and their children that were expelled from Arab countries and are now living in Greater Israel. That is the only viable alternative.
    Face it and stop hallucinating, once and for all. There will never be an Arab-Palestinian State in Greater Israel West of the Jordan River (Judea and Samaria). Jerusalem is the United Eternal Capital of the Jewish people and it will stay that way with the Almighty’s help.
    Throughout history the Jewish people ultimately had to defend themselves and nothing has changed. There must be no concessions and no appeasement, those avenues have proven to be counterproductive, it increased terror and violence and it increases the danger and reduced safety and security of the citizens of Israel.
