The Israeli government submitted to the blackmail of King Hussein of Jordan and violence of Islamic jihad. The lives of two Druze policemen and a family butchered by a grinning Islamo-fascist, while eating Shabbat dinner, is not quite enough of a red line for our government to put its foot down and say 'no more'!
As it was expected metal detectors has been removed, rewarding savagery and neglecting Security and future of Jewish people. It will cost more Jewish blood!
Despite everything, press will continue to call Netanyahu as far right! When will Israel have real leadership? The wimp, Netanyahu, and gutless members of his Security Cabinet has capitulated to Arabs. Arabs will understand this for what it is: Israel's leaders scared of Arab violence spiraling into the Third Intifada and agree to anything to avoid it.
When Jews visit the Jewish holiest site in the world, not the fake third holiest one, they have to go through metal detectors and sometimes they are body searched, so are Muslims enraged over this necessary procedure, especially since it was they who have broken the status quo by bringing machine guns in and murdering Israeli police?
Are you tired of seeing Israel being humiliated and endangered by a government whose only policy is capitulation to enemies and paralysis? Why would the Arabs ever think of making peace with Israel when they see very clearly that even minimal violence works wonders, every time?
Member of Knesset Bezalel Smotrich (Jewish Home) said "The message to an Arab street and the terrorists is clear: terrorism pays off."
The Zionist leaders of Israel, if there some, must set their egos and their political differences aside and unite - join forces to save Jerusalem and Israel! Bibi has lost his nerve - it is time to see he leave his job and true Zionist government do what must be done to secure future of Jewish people.
To delegitimize criticism of the Prime Minister by saying that there is no one better to replace him, that's not a defense. That's a surrender mentality!
We're not dealing with peacetime first-world problems, we are dealing with bloodbaths. Our blood! While our Prime Minister is continuously at the ready to surrender, we can at least find solace in that most of the people of Israel are not. And as hope is our national anthem, let it be through the voices of dissatisfaction that a brave new leader will arise.
Appeasing the idiocy, intolerance and violence of the Muslims is a mistake! Even according to the argument that "cameras are better" and "the metal detectors were more symbolic", it was a mistake to take them down. Continuing to misunderstand the barbaric, violent culture of our Muslim enemies is a HUGE mistake! Until we learn and implement this lesson as a society, we will be plagued by their barbaric terror. However, the day they learn that we stand proud and strong is the day we will achieve true peace.
Our government has bowed to the Islamic supremacists! We may be a sovereign state, but our government is not acting accordingly. Will we as Israelis sit back and accept it? Or will a new leadership arise from the people that can forge a new path?
US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said the White House did not pressure Israel into removing recently-installed security equipment from the Temple Mount and that the decision was taken by Israel alone. "Israel’s security is among our top priorities. We would never pressure Israel into making a security decision for political purposes." (Netanyahu always blames others for his own deficiency! It was entirely self-inflicted stupidity committed by a weak government of Israel, which still unable to appreciate the fact that Israel is a sovereign state!)
FOOD for THOUGHT by Steven Shamrak
Ask any anti-Semite or enemy of Israel and they will tell you that their hate toward Jews is not just as religious group, but as people, ethnic group or the nation. Some misguided or delusional Jews still believe in "equality". They were many of them during the Soviet era block and in the West. Appeasement of the Jew-haters or anti-Israel Muslim world, as well as hostile Western bureaucracies does not work - We have tried it many times and it has always failed!
The Waqf, the Jordanian trust which manages Muslim sites on the Temple Mount, has expressed its opposition to the new agreement forged between Israel and Jordan over the Temple Mount. The agreement stipulated that Israel would replace the advanced metal detectors ("magnetometers") it had stationed on the Mount with other security measures. In return, Jordan would allow the return to Israel of the security official at Israel’s embassy in Jordan who shot and killed a terrorist who had attacked him.
Overnight (77% of Israelis believe removing the Temple Mount metal detectors was Surrender), Israel dismantled the infrastructure for the installation of smart cameras, or any cameras, really, at the entrances to the Temple Mount compound, in compliance with the list of demands submitted by the true owner of the site, the Jordanian Waqf in exchange for a possible short-term lull in Arab rioting in Jerusalem and elsewhere for Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount.
Ten Thousand Israeli Arabs Wave Palestinian Flags at Temple Mount Terrorists’ Funeral in Umm al-Fahm. The crowd, all proud owners of Israeli blue ID cards, waved Palestinian flags and called for the liberation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the “occupier” – that’s their own democratically elected government.
Hours after he caved to Palestinian demands, Netanyahu says he backs death penalty for terrorists, and it’s leaked that he’s been talking of partial West Bank annexation. (Bibi is so used to political manipulation and lies, just to keep his position, that he forgot why his brother lost his life and why Likud is called a Zionist party!)
Leaders of the Jerusalem Muslim community continued their boycott despite Israel removing metal detectors at the entry ways to the Al-Aqsa mosque. The Waqf, a Jordanian controlled Muslim religious authority that runs the Islamic sites at the Al-Aqsa compound, said worshippers would continue to pray in the streets outside the marble and stone plaza. (They try to occupy Jerusalem as Muslims are doing in Europe. Israel must use the opportunity and take control over the holiest Jewish site - Enough!)
The IDF has declared the Machpelah House in Hebron a closed military zone after 120 settlers descended on the contested property. The decision is meant to stop further settlers from flocking to the site in the event of a forced evacuation. Ministers and Knesset members from the Likud and the Jewish Home parties congratulated the 15 families who entered the Machpelah House. Earlier this month, Israeli security forces blocked Jews from entering the Machpelah House and the Rachel and Leah House in Hevron, both of which were bought by Jews several years ago.
Israel will compensate the family of the Jordanian landlord who was accidentally killed by the Israeli security guard who was attacked in Jordan. The guard opened fire and kill the terrorist who attacked him and accidentally killed the owner of the home. (Will Bibi, weak link, take million of dollars from the PA tax and pay to families of Jewish victims of terror?)
This Tillerson State Department Report blames Israel for Palestinian Arab terrorist attacks on innocent Jews and Americans, ignores and whitewashes the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) “pay to slay” payments to Arabs to murder Jews, among other travesties – contradicts both President Trump’s insightful Riyadh speech, and Ambassador Haley’s outstanding work at the United Nations. President Trump’s courageous speech in Riyadh placed the blame for terrorist attacks against innocent Jews, Christians and Muslims squarely where it belongs: on barbaric extreme Islamist ideologies. (Instead of clearing the SWAMP in the US State Department, Tillerson perpetuates the same Israel-bashing tradition!)
After a contentious meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Donald Trump instructed a group of trusted White House staffers to make the potential case for withholding certification of Iran at the next 90-day review of the nuclear deal. The goal was to give Trump what he felt the State Department had failed to do: the option to declare that Tehran was not in compliance with the contentious agreement.
Israel has closed all diplomatic missions in Turkey as tensions between Ankara and Jerusalem continue to heat up over the ongoing standoff at the Temple Mount. The move follows stabbing of a security guard at the Israeli embassy in Amman, Jordan. It also comes a year after Israel and Turkey signed a reconciliation deal following a six-year diplomatic standoff. Israeli officials hoped that the reconciliation deal, which included an Israel payment of $20 million in compensation to nine Turkish nationals, who were killed as they attacked Israeli navy commandos enforcing Israel’s naval blockade of the Gaza Strip in May, 2010, would temper President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s venom towards the Jewish State and help repair ties.

Peace with Jordan is Forgery!
1. About 20 Israeli tourists were temporarily detained by Jordanian police and threatened with imprisonment a week ago at a hotel near Petra. The group was in Jordan to visit the grave of the biblical high priest Aaron, the brother of Moses, who died at Mount Hor, currently under Jordan occupation. The group’s detention came amid Israeli-Jordanian tension over Jerusalem’s Temple Mount holy site, where Israel had installed metal detectors to prevent future terror attacks.
2. Jordan has held hostage an Israeli security guard, who was wounded in the attack in the Israeli Embassy (along with 20 diplomats). In contravention of International Law and Norms, Jordan demanded that in exchange for releasing the security guard, Israel must remove the metal detectors at the Temple Mount. (Israel seriously needs to re-evaluate its relationship with Jordan, Egypt and Turkey. It would be prudent to classify them as enemies and treat them as such – fake peace does not work!)
