The Israeli public is “very concerned” about the lifting — in the face of Arab pressure — of security measures that were put in place at the Temple Mount following a recent terrorist attack there, the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner said during an i24 News interview on Wednesday.

Israelis, Dovid Efune noted, “are wondering, ‘Why do they want these measures removed?’ They’re seeing it as a silent, or not-so-silent support, for the acts that are going to be enabled if these measures are removed — for the terror acts and for the ability to conduct terror acts.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now must seek to “come up with a solution that is going to solve the problem, keep the site safe and, hopefully, reduce tensions at the same time,” Efune went on to say.

    Unutterably STUPID STUPID move to cave in to Abbas and his thugs. Should’ve threatened to demolish Al-Aqsa if any more attacks and killings. Installed a gun battery in front of the metal detectors. Palestinians 100 Israel 0

    IDIOTS. And now watch the escalation from embolden ed murderers paid from our taxes. FFS

    An incredibly stupid move, crumbling before the pa Israel had total moral rights to install metal detectors cameras and anything else deemed needed for security. There was clear proof that the islamists were violating the own so called holy site as they have done numerous times before. Israel

    has every right to protect itself. Here in the US if I visit a government building a stadium and dozens or thousands of other places I must go thru metal detectors. Israel should have installed whatever security devices it wanted and told the pa “one more incident” and we will administer the Temple Mount. The present policy, since 1967, has failed and has been seen as weakness by the islamists
