Netanyahu Blames PA Chairman ‘Abu Mazen’ for Shooting of Temple Mount Activist

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

The streets of Jerusalem are quiet right now, and a tense calm has settled on the city.

Israel’s security establishment met this morning (Thursday, Oct. 30) with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to decide how to meet the challenge that now lies ahead.

“I would like to send my best wishes for a full and quick recovery to Yehuda Glick, who is now fighting for his life,” Netanyahu said at the start of the meeting.

Participating in the discussion were Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, Public Defense Minister Itzhak Aharonovitch, ISA Director Yoram Cohen, Israel Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino, Jerusalem District Police Commander Moshe Edri, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and representatives from the Attorney General’s office, the Justice Ministry and the IDF.

Netanyahu praised the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the Israel Police for quickly solving “this act of terrorism.”

The prime minister added, “A few days ago, I said that we were facing a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements and by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen who said that Jews must be prevented from going up to the Temple Mount by any means possible.

“I still have not heard from the international community so much as one word of condemnation for these inflammatory remarks.

“The international community needs to stop its hypocrisy and take action against inciters, against those who try to change the status quo.

“I have ordered significant reinforcements so that we can maintain both security in Jerusalem and the status quo in the holy places. This struggle might be long, and here, like in other struggles, we must first of all, lower the flames.

“No side should take the law into its own hands. We must be level-headed and act with determination and responsibility, and so we shall.”

Israel to Add ‘Defensive Canopy’ Along Syrian Border

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Israel has decided to build a series of assault posts designed to return fire rapidly in the event of an attack from across the border.

The decision came in response to just such an incident that occurred earlier this week, and cost the life of a 13-year-old Israeli boy. His father, a defense ministry contractor on a job along the security fence, was seriously wounded along with two others. They were sitting in a water truck when a Kornet anti-tank missile scored a direct hit on their vehicle. Mohammed Karkara paid the price and died in his father’s arms.

According to the IDF, live personnel will staff the series of assault stations — the “Defensive Canopy” to be strung out along the 210th Territorial Division — as the situation warrants. The “210th” is the area that secures Israel’s border with Syria in the Golan Heights.

The IDF maintains a similar series of posts in the south, strung out along the Gaza border as well. Within the stations are various types of technologies that allow for quick coordination between the various military elements – air force, ground troops, artillery and so forth – needed to repel any enemy attack.
