Israel’s government this morning (Sunday, Nov. 2) approved an amendment to the penal code that will stiffen punishment for throwing stones at motor vehicles.

At its weekly cabinet meeting, the cabinet decided to add an amendment to the current penal code allowing judges to imprison a convicted terrorist for up to 20 years for throwing or casting stones or other objects at a motor vehicle.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, called for the legislation in recent discussions on the disturbances in Jerusalem.

“Israel is taking vigorous action against terrorists and those who throw stones, fire bombs and fireworks,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the start of the cabinet meeting.

“We will also pass stronger legislation on the issue. All of this is in order to restore quiet and security throughout Jerusalem.

“I have ordered that massive reinforcements be brought in and that additional means be used in order to ensure law and order in Israel’s capital,” Netanyahu added.

  1. We need to clarify what it means when we discuss
    A motor device. If the attempted murder throws
    a stone at a kindergarten and the victim is riding
    a bike, will the animal get 20yrs and/or a parade
    and a street named after him in Gaza? If the
    victim is strolling on a street or praying or …
    So much mental energy! KISS, when u throw
    A stone,u get SHOT and your family gets moved
    to Jordan, Egypt … Not that complicate

  2. I like Benjamin Sherr's idea. I might add just drop off perpetrate (if he lives through gun shot) and family in the middle of Syria or Jordan by helicopter. It's where their ancestors came from. Let their own people deal with them. KISS!!!! Do what's best for Israel's survival.

  3. If you'd repatriate the overwhelmingly genocidal Arab Muslim population west of the Jordan back to Jordan & Egypt, you wouldn't have rock throwers nor have to pay billions to imprison & feed them. How stupid.
