“Shoot now and negotiate later” is the new directive for police when confronting terrorists in a closed place, such as a bus or building, Haaretz reported Thursday.

The new guidelines change the tactic whereby a negotiating team would arrive before a SWAT team could do what it came to do and eliminate any threat of terror by killing the terrorist.


The change might meet with disapproval from organizations such as the United Nations and “human rights” organizations that accuse Israel of using “disproportional force” by killing a terrorist before he or she kills someone else.

The same voices often add that “Israel has a right to defend itself.”

  1. Finally! Talking sense! These Palis,Terrorists, Arabs whatever you want to call them are out to kill Jews wherever they are.Shooting them to kill is the only action they understand. Sadly, the rest of the world does not see things this way. Believe me if Americans or Europeans were being knifed or shot every day they would shoot back. No doubt about it.

  2. What a laugh…

    "The United Nations and “human rights” organizations that accuse Israel of using “disproportional force” by killing a terrorist before he or she kills someone else."

    They charge us with using disproportional force EVEN AFTER they maim or kill.

  3. Does what the United Nations and "human rights" organizations say make any sense? Why wouldn't you kill someone before they kill someone else???? It's time for the US to get out of the UN because it has become a voice against Israel and no one else.

  4. Yes,deporting the Palestinians to an area in eastern southern Syria is the only way to go.Enough of this two-state solution business it can never happen.If the Russians make state of Aliwitestan for Assad in the north of Syria than Israel, The new Christian Russia and Secular leader U.S.A. must now make Palestinian state in south eastern Syria.
    Jews have been denied access to their holiest sites,let the muslims worship at Mecca.

  5. The US has no leg to stand on with this argument when it sends drones to bomb hospitals, killing patients, doctors, and other health workers. It was dropping bombs on weddings and funerals years ago and blithly calling the innocents "collateral damage." Hypocrites, the American government is. The UN exists solely for the purpose of lining the pockets of the administrators there, and to condemn Israel.
