“This terrorism did not begin today,” said Netanyahu. “It has accompanied the Zionist enterprise from its beginning.”

“We will chase them and we will overcome them,” he added.

Netanyahu was joined by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot, and interim Police Chief Bentzi Sau.

The prime minister blamed the violence on a campaign of incitement by Hamas (a terror group whose charter already includes bringing about Israel’s destruction), the Islamic Movement in Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and Middle East governments, saying that they are spreading lies about Israel seeking to change the status quo on the Temple Mount when the Jewish state is not planning any such changes.

“We will take aggressive steps against the Islamic Movement in Israel and other inciters,” Netanyahu said.

During the press conference, Netanyahu also encouraged the Israeli Knesset’s opposition leader, Zionist Union party head MK Isaac Herzog, to join a national unity government, saying “there is reason for a wider government” given the instability in the Middle East.

  • It is time to evict all Arabs in Greater Israel who create terror, violence, riot and attack Jews.
    A Jewish person and any other person in Jerusalem and the rest of Greater Israel has the right to live and walk in his own country in peace and tranquility without fear or intimidation.
    I suggest a massive demonstration by Israelis, demanding the government to restore peace without fear or intimidation at all costs or be replaced – the current situation cannot and must not continue. The government of Israel must Ignore world opinion and the Media, they will criticize and defame Israel no matter what.
    Eventually the world at large respects a government that protects its people.
    According to International Law All Jews have the right to live in any area of the original 1920 Mandate for Palestine (75,000 square miles) and its adoption in perpetuity by the League of Nations.
    It is interesting to note that the World at large is not questioning the State of Jordan and its territory, which has taken 78% from the allocation to Jewish land. Jordan a State that has never existed in history prior to WW1. But Israel that has existed on its land for over 3500 years which included The land Jordan occupies, they are questioning Israel’s land. They do not mention that The Arabs received over 5 million square miles of territory and that the Arabs terrorized and expelled over a million Jewish families and their children, including the confiscated of all their assets, homes, businesses and Real estate 120,440 sq, km. or 75,000 sq. miles (6 times the size of Israel, valued in the trillions of dollars) and that about 690,000 Jewish families from Arab countries were re-settled in Israel’s LIBERATED TERRITORY.
    Arabs are the occupiers, they have 21 Arab States that were granted to them (5 million square miles) after WWI by the same powers that granted the State of Israel (75,000 square miles).
    There is no other term for Jewish villages and towns in Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem than Liberated Jewish Territories since times immemorial.
    To negate any claim of Arab ownership of the land, Read and study the Ottoman empire land title. It states that approximately 92% of the land was owned by the government, some of it was leased to the Arab population as sharecroppers, not owners.
    The balance 8% was owned by Arab land barons who sold the land at premium prices to the Jews.
    Here is the incredible testimony of The Mufti of Jerusalem on January 12, 1937 when he documents in testimony for the British Peel Commission that the Jews did not steal land from the Arab Palestinians but by the year of 1920, the time of the “British Occupation” as trustee for the Jews, meaning the British Palestine Mandate, the Jewish people had already purchased 1,500,000 dunams of land in the Land of Israel which is 375,000 acres of desolate and swamp land.
    The Mufti also testified that the land was not bought by “forcibly acquired-compulsory acquisition of land”. That kind of ruling behavior was the action of the Ottoman rulers and not the Jews. Also the Mufti admitted that any evictions done were by absentee landlords who chose to sell “land over the heads of their tenants, who then were forcibly evicted”, and that the majority of these tenants were not Palestinians but Lebanese. Any land title granted by the British to the Arabs was and is illegal and therefore it is null and void.
    It is a common practice by the Muslims to obfuscate, distort, outright fabrication and misrepresent facts to their benefit, it is even permitted under their religion, in order to accomplish their goals.
    It is tine for a separation between the Jews and the Arabs who terrorize and commit violence.
    Israel has been extremely generous in its concessions and appeasement to the Arabs since 1948. It only added to more terror and violence and the deaths of thousands of Jews, who have suffered enough in the Diaspora for thousands of years.

    the “palestinians” have ALWAYS preferred destroying what someone else has built to building something themselves. and, they do so with a seething & savage resentment, jealousy, and hatred. there is nothing new there.

    nothing new in the u.n. sec’y genl’s condemnation of Israel for defending itself. he’s a morally feeble fool, a doddering old fool, but a fool, nonetheless.

    what is new is the US Administration’s moral obtuseness; the State Dept and White House seem unable to figure out that this is NOT a question of generalized, mutual attacks: THIS IS A CASE OF UNPROVOKED ATTACKS ON JEWS and the tentative measures that the Jews use to defend themselves. ANYONE WHO ASSERTS OTHERWISE IS A FOOL, MORON OR A BIGOT.

    (the escalation of attacks on Jews is the predictable result of incitement from the Arab media, the p.a. (and, other govt’s), rewards from the p.a., and, the timidity, fecklessness, or outright abstention of Israeli law enforcement.)
