Losing Liberty In Israel

The Comptroller's report states that 13 murders through the use of licensed weapons took place in 2012. What we are not told is that in 12 of those cases, the shooters were security guards.

This leads to the conclusion that the Ministry of Internal Security is mixing the security companies with private human rights. It is presenting Israel’s citizenry with completely distorted data and due to a single incident, seeks to force all the private arms bearers in Israel to undergo a humiliating psychological evaluation.

The result of this course of action is that the amount of weapons carried by the public will continue to decrease and in those 70 percent of terror or criminal attacks, the responsible citizens with guns will not be able to protect the public.

In years past, Police chiefs Assaf Hefetz and Shlomo Aharonishki called on licensed gun owners to carry their weapons with them. They even declared that they consider those arms-bearing citizens an integral part of the security lineup.

But the process toward loss of liberty continues to unravel Israeli society. In the interim, we are losing both our security and our liberty.

  1. A number of years ago Israel decided to distribute thousands of automatic weapons to the PLO terror organization, which it deceivingly renamed the Palestinian Authority. Over a thousand Israelis were murdered by those weapons. So who is endangering whom? Who demonstrates insanity and who exactly needs to be supervised?, good article

    Israel should let it be known they are not going to permit anyone to disturb their peace and tranquility. What was done with these kidnappings is the utmost in psychological terror. Gaza must be destroyed and emptied of all foreigners. We must control it. We made a mistake and now we have to fix it. End of story. It doesn't matter who the con is- it could be a number of foreign powers, the point is we must maintain our hold over it and the seaport

    I have never understood our people and the thinking —we are a "savant" nation.
