The security cabinet is meeting Saturday night following the two murderous attacks on Jewish civilians in Judea and Samaria last Thursday and Friday. Two ministers, Naftali Bennett (Habayit Hayehudi) and Gilad Erdan (Likud) have pointed a finger at one of the culprits in the wave of terror — Facebook, or, rather, the entire Internet and its social networks. Bennett plans to present a plan to take care of “viral terrorism,” including a demand to deny the use of Facebook and the Internet throughout the Hebron Mountain area, where so many terrorists have originated.

Appearing on Channel 2’s “Meet the Press,” Internal Security Minister Erdan attacked Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg, saying, “Facebook is sabotaging police efforts to capture terrorists.” He even added that “the blood of the murdered is on Zuckerberg’s hands,” and called for a citizen’s rebellion against Facebook.

Bennett plans to demand at the cabinet meeting tonight the arrest of every Hamas activist in Judea and Samaria released in the Gilad Shalit deal who have since committed any violations. This has been done once before during the “Return, oh brothers” operation to locate the three Israeli boys kidnapped exactly two years ago, an act that preceded the 2014 Gaza War.

Bennett also insists on a full-scale military operation in areas A and B which are under PA control officially. He also demands blocking Arab traffic on Route 60, where the drive-by murder of Michael Mark was carried out Friday. “We can no longer continue with the old program,” he said, “we must switch the disc.”

The government meanwhile has ordered several steps in response to the attacks. Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Liberman approved a bid for 42 new housing units in Kiryat Arba, the late Hallel Yaffa Ariel HY”D’s home town. The bid had been frozen 18 months ago and thawed on FRiday.

The IDF has imposed a complete closure on Hebron and neighboring villages, which includes roughly 700 thousand Arabs. In addition, the IDF has moved two paratrooper units and one infantry unit to the Hebron area.

  1. Shut down their internet access.
    Keep them closed in.
    Build THOUSANDS of new homes for every attack.
    Retake control.
    BTW, Zuckerberg is so alienated, and so busy worshiping at his own altar, that he doesn't care one bit about the damage he and his ilk do.

  2. Ah, Student Reich, I presume, I must agree with you on "The-Zuck", a creature wrapped in his own Aura. My Reb would say he is, "All perception and No substance", and he worships at the Idol of Money. If Ha-Shem wishes to loose the plague upon this Idol-Worshipper, that is His Purview.
    I hope He guides Eretz-Israel to a just, and lasting, solution to what appears a "Gordion-Knot" to me.

  3. So far no one has come up with one single meaningful solution. bibi's "big plan" to build? the tenders were already in place and HE froze them and he will once again as soon as his g-d the quartet, sits on his head. Hey what about those families who legally purchased a home in Hevron and were made homeless by the agent of satan ya'alon? they were to be returned immediately…hmm… and cutting off acccess to facebook in a single geographical region?? how ya gonna do that one bennett? it is the INTERNET, WORLD WIDE WEB, what are there no brains left?? you can't cut off anyone from the internet unless you actually cut off all satelitte transmission, which would include cell phones, tv, etc, and this wimpy government is never going to do that. There is only one meaningful solution, broken into parts: (1) we have a "leader of the Jewish people" who does teshuva, starts to keep the mitzvot, stops violating the mitzvot and acts like a Jew rather than Jewish. (2) we tell the nations that this Land was given to the Jews, Am Israel, the first-born, chosen by the Creator of the World, G-d, HKBH, and we now intend to fulfill the commandment to take the land and settle it from border to border, according to His instructions. (3) all idol worshippers and all places of idol worship are immediately removed from the Land. (4) Medinat Israel runs according to Torah Law. (5) All enemies of the the Jews and their extended family are confined to a single location until such time as they are no longer a threat.

    This is a meaningful plan, or at least the beginnings of one. More is required, but I think it is a good start.
