Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will discuss with the Cabinet Sunday on how to deal with the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic Movement in an effort to restore calm and end the violence that has spread deep into the urban areas of Israel.

(An earlier version of this article incorrectly state that the Prime Minister would meet with radical Islamic leaders.)

Hundreds of policemen have been deployed through the country to prevent violence, Hundreds of Arabs from Kalkilya, adjacent to the Tel Aviv metropolitan city of Kfar Saba, approached the high-speed highway 6 (Kvish 6), where motorists were pelted by rocks this week.

The police closed the road for several minutes before restoring order. Part of Highway 444 near Netanya was closed after Arabs from the city of Taybeh rioted for at least the second time this week.

The repaid escalation of violence beyond eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria has clearly alarmed the country.

Prime Minister Netanyahu announced Saturday night that in addition to his attempt to deal with radicla Islamic violence, 250 reserve Border Police have been mobilized.

He stated: The three companies will reinforce the Israel Police in Jerusalem and throughout the country. An increased presence is a primary preventive and deterrent measure.

Security forces also are increasing surveillance over social media, which is being used as it was in the Arab Spring revolutions to promote violence.

The officer of the Prime Minister also said that the Prime Minister told U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday that “he expects the Palestinian Authority to stop its wild and mendacious incitement, which is causing the current wave of terrorism.

The statement added:

Kerry said he is aware of the fact that it is Israel’s policy to maintain the status quo and not change it.

  1. Read what the Arab-Israeli Registrar Ahmed Tibi, a pity that the majority do not think so!

    Ahmed Tibi letter,
    By Mustafa Haj Ali Hamdan Ahmed.

    Ahmed Tibi, please note that I am an Arab Muslim. An Israeli citizen. Sick of mind called lie with the Palestinian and Arab restoration time has come and say it openly. We Arabs living in Israel, just Arabs. We have never been “flstinim” because there was no such thing as’ With Flstini”. Never. Most of the Arabs in Israel were born in the State of Israel.

    Our ancestors came from various Arab countries a hundred and twenty years, due to employment and income offered by Jewish farmers or different jobs for the British for thirty years.

    Indeed, a handful of Arabs were here before under Ottoman-Turkish rule. No Palestinians. That handful was gathered to his ancestors and his descendants continue to be Arabs like me.

    The invention of the Palestinian people and the subsequent demand for an independent Palestinian state are a nightmare for me. I do not want to live in an Arab state, not Falasteen.

    Another Arab country will be conducted like any Arab state that any sane Arab-Israeli conflict should oppose it. None of the Arab countries least one state to be democratic.

    No fight-no discrimination.

    I am an Arab-Israeli Muslim who wants to live in Israel, the home of the National Democratic Jewish people which is also my home. As Jews / Arabs / Chinese / living outside their countries of origin to abide by the laws, rules and customs of the place.

    I demand a complete civic equality between me and any other Jew, both rights and obligations. I want to just distribution of resources and fair for all segments of the population. The situation of some of the Arabs in Israel is better than the situation of Ethiopian immigrants, but also those know one option from Arab countries is much worse.

    The struggle of the Arabs against the Jews distinguishes us from Israeli society and requires Jews to discriminate against us negatively. There will be no struggle, there will be no discrimination. very simple.

    I’m not alone. There are many Arabs who think like me secretly and even give it expression in a whisper. It’s not fashionable to speak and write in terms Marbiim- we lived in Israeli society, we studied a chapter or two of the laws of life, sanctifying death brings death and the right to life is a supreme value than anything else.

    I am an Arab Muslim secular Jews who lived among secular if only we take the nonsense that is called Falasteen our lexicon, there will be differences and there should be a difference between us.

    Want an Arab country? -tza Israel!

    It must be admitted, Jews want to live in peace with the Arabs within them. We bother them with all kinds of Arab leaders “slno” only perpetuate the hostility. Enough, wars and now it’s the reality. Tiny State of Israel can and should be a model state and do not care to be called the National House of the Jewish people. I want to live here.

    Does not see the value of an Arab life but an Arab country should go choose a country like this. there is a lot. I do not!

    Even if this land and divided Palestinian state will be established, will not give up the opportunity to lead a democratic State of Israel. I love this country and respect the Jews who built it on the ruins of a desolate wasteland, neglected and abandoned was here.

    The State-Flstin” would be a terrible state. It certainly would not be democratic. You can already see the signs of corruption among the leaders of the pre-Palestine. Who will put them on trial and will sentence them to penalties? The State of Israel to do it. Read newspapers.

  2. What is the status quo? Terrorism intermittently as always? What is the context for this statement? The only status quo maintenance scenario reported before now has been in regard to the Temple Mount. The status quo of Israel regarding terror throughout the nation has been appeasement and containment which clearly has failed. We need a change from the "status quo". We need the Sovereignty Plan.

  3. One thing which cheers me when I see the dromedary hordes burning tires, is that inhaling the smoke from them may cause lung cancer. Now that's an investment in the future. A pointer for the IDF; when an arm is raised to throw a firebomb, a lateral shot three inches below the armpit should take out both lungs and the heart. Zero survivability. Just sayin'.
