In response to the outbreak of Arab rioting in northern Israel and the continued Arab violence in Jerusalem, MK Moshe Feiglin called upon the government to recognize that the Arabs have declared war on the State of Israel.
“When Knesset Members continue to visit the Temple Mount after the attempted assassination of Rabbi Yehuda Glick, the security chiefs blame them for the escalating violence,” said Feiglin.
“When citizens at a train stop are intentionally run over, the authorities put cement barriers on the sidewalks,” he continued.
“When police officers shoot a terrorist threatening them with a knife, the police are blamed – not the terrorist.
The time has come for the government to understand. We are in a war. The Arabs protesting now in northern Israel are waving the enemy Hamas and Fatah flags.
Wars are not won by placing cement blocks on the sidewalks.
Wars are not won by rewarding those who wish to remove Jews from the Temple Mount.
Wars are not won by placing the blame on the police, who are doing their job.
Either those responsible should decide to win – or they should step down,” Feiglin concluded.
