(JNi.media) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced during his cabinet meeting on Sunday that he demanded of Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to launch a criminal investigation against MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint Arab List) over incitement for attacks on Israeli civilians.

“Pay attention to what she told the official Hamas publication,” Netanyahu said, citing: “The hundreds of thousands of worshipers must go to Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to face up to the Israeli plot to permit shedding the blood of the residents of east Jerusalem. Today there is only the action of individuals, and what is needed is popular support. If only lone attacks continue, without popular support, they will fade away within a few days. So when thousands of our people come out it will turn these events into a real Intifada,’” Netanyahu concluded the quote from Zoabi’s recent message.

According to Netanyahu, “this is a false and reckless incitement, and a clear call to violence. I am not prepared to ignore such serious things. This morning I approached the Attorney General to immediately launch a criminal investigation against Zoabi.”

Netanyahu also said at the cabinet meeting Sunday morning that “we are in the midst of a wave of terror whose source is false and systematic incitement about the Temple Mount, an incitement that came from Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and the Islamic Movement in Israel. Over the weekend, I ordered the enlisting of 16 reserve companies of the Border Police, in order to restore security and order. It is preferable to raise a massive force in advance, to take care of possible developments, rather than enlisting it after the fact—and we will enlist as many troops as will be necessary.”

The prime minister also announced that he intends on Sunday to convene another cabinet meeting to deal with government action against the Islamist movement in Israel.”

Netanyahu added: “At my instruction, the Government will approve today the enactment of minimum prison sentences of several years in prison for stone and Molotov cocktail throwers, as well as fines for minors and their parents. I want to wish a speedy recovery to the civilians, policemen and soldiers who were wounded in recent days. Also, I want to commend the security forces, Police, Border Police, the IDF and Shin Bet, for their dedicated and tireless work for the security of Israel, and I particularly want to commend the citizens of Israel who show vigilance, determination and an impressive fortitude.”

  1. Natanyahu is always talk, talk, talk! As the PM he could and should have sent a special unit to take hold of this bitch and put her under arrest until she rots. The Justice, if any,, as has been proven continually is reluctant to condemn arab terrorists. Lost case. Israel is at war. Arabs are murdering Jews. Incitement from all sides: Abbas et al, and Mr Bibi talks talks talks only. No positive reaction.

  2. What is so hypocritical is that if Palestine was located where Mexico or Canada is, if they did the things that they do to Israel, they would’ve been annihilated completely by now. I support Israel. Y’all do whatever you have to do. Stay safe!

  3. Permitting an arab in the Knesset is not a sign of democracy. It is a sign of weakness, denial, and a futile attemt to get praise by those who hate us. The arabs will never permit long lasting peace with the Jews. Only expulsion and the destruction of all the houses of terrorists AND THEIR FAMiLIES will (hopefully) allow Jews to walk peacefully in Jerusalem. If Obama opposes expulsion let him walk down the old citgy streets to the Kotel at midnight — alone.

  4. The first duty of a government is to protect its citizens and the security of the country. Her actions incite harm against Israeli citizens. If there is not a law now that would convict her of sedition or icitement, the Kenesset must immediately pass one.
