Israel’s high-level political security cabinet met on Motzei Shabbos following the murderous terror attack in Neve Yaakov on Friday night and the shooting attack in Ir Dovid on Shabbos morning.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, six decisions were made at the meeting, which were summarized by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the Cabinet meeting on Sunday morning.

“I just came from Shaare Tzedek and Hadassah Har Hatzofim hospitals, where I visited the wounded from the two terrorist attacks in Jerusalem,” Netanyahu began. “We all wish them a speedy and complete recovery.”

“Last night, the Security Cabinet approved a series of steps in the fight against terrorism,” Netanyahu continued. “On the one hand, we will step up the deployment and activity of the security forces, on the other we will exact a price from those who carry out terrorist attacks and their supporters.”

“This morning we sealed the home of the terrorist who carried out the reprehensible attack in Jerusalem; his home will be demolished.”

“We decided to revoke the national insurance rights of families that support terrorism. The government will discuss two additional steps: revoking Israeli identity cards and residency of families of terrorists that support terrorism. We will also expand and expedite issuing weapons permits to thousands of Israeli civilians, including those in the rescue services.

“For example, ZAKA has 3,000 mobile volunteers throughout the country. Only a small percentage of them are armed. Imagine if they and others were armed. Of course, this would significantly increase the response capability because as we have seen, time and again, including yesterday in Ir Dovid, that heroic, armed and trained civilians save lives.

“Also, we will decide soon on steps to strengthen settlement in Yehudah and Shomron in order to make it clear to the terrorists who seek to uproot us from our land that we are here to stay. I have also instructed the chairman of the National Security Council to evaluate additional steps that came up before the Security Cabinet and which will be presented to the public later on. While we are not seeking an escalation, we are prepared for any possibility. Our answer to terrorism is an iron fist and a powerful, swift and precise response.

“I would like to commend, again, the police officers who eliminated the terrorist in Neve Yaakov. I would like to commend Lt. N, of the IDF Paratrooper Brigade, who was in Ir Dovid on leave and who, together with his father, showed resourcefulness and heroism in engaging and neutralizing the terrorist. I would like to commend all of the security forces, which are in action around the clock in the fight against terrorism.

“The terrorists seek to slaughter us indiscriminately; therefore, we must all unite as one in the relentless fight against them. We will defeat them.”

A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office on Motzei Shabbos listed the six steps as detailed below:

1. The home of the terrorist who carried out the terrorist attack in Jerusalem will be sealed immediately ahead of its demolition.
2. National insurance rights and additional benefits for the families of terrorists that support terrorism will be revoked.
3. Legislation on the revocation of Israeli identity cards from the families of terrorists that support terrorism will be discussed at tomorrow’s government meeting.
4. Firearm licensing will be expedited and expanded in order to enable thousands of additional citizens to carry weapons.
5. In response to the abhorrent attacks and the celebrations in their wake, Prime Minister Netanyahu has decided on steps to strengthen settlements that will be submitted this week.
6. The reinforcement of military and police units, expanded arrests and focused operations to collect illegal weapons will be carried out.”

  1. In the 1980s, a Rabbi from Brooklyn wanted to expel all Arab from Israel.

    This would have prevented hundreds or thousands of Jewish deaths — by Arab terrorists.

    How many Jews were never born, because their parents were killed by Arab terrorists?
    How many Jews became orphans, because their parents were killed by Arab terrorists?
    How many Jews left Eretz HaKodesh for galut, because of the trauma created by Arab terrorists?

    Instead of expelling Arabs from Israel, we expelled Jews from Gaza.

  2. I have no idea why you guys are so shocked by this attack. Dont you remember that רק בדם תי’ לנו ארץ?

    We live in galut in USA with freedom while out brothers in isreal enjoy their so called גאולה 😋

  3. He left out the most important step: To strengthen Torah, Shabbos and mitzvos in the country among ALL Jewish citizens.
    אם ה’ לא ישמור עיר שוא שקד שומר

  4. “The speed of the response, which was not demonstrated by the previous government, is important. In addition to implementing the plan of the saintly Godol HaDor Moreinu HoRav Meir Kahana זצקקללה”ה הי”ד the supreme court must immediately be placed on notice that if they nix even so much as 1 step against this terrorism, they will be disbanded and have their bldg sealed immediately and blown up.

  5. Death ro the Arabs in israel!!!! Choke them Burn them slice them rip them!!!and serve them to pigs 🐖 if the pigs are not disgusting of there dirty bodies

  6. don’t defile the land by burying these animals in our holy eretz yisrael once they are dead…

    instead, Israel should wrap them up in pig skin and bury them in an unknown location somewhere deep in the southern Negev Desert where no one will know where they are and the family wont be able to visit.

    (either that or we can always launch the body of the dead terrorist into Jordan with a trebuchet)

  7. The regime fakes terrorism. Rally ’round the flag effect. They’re probably doing this stuff cuz they want the plebes distracted from the clot shot casualties, which otherwise would cause em plebes to lose confidence in the regime. I wish I had been in Yisroel to have warned everyone. I would have warned thousands bout the clot shot. Unfortunately, I worry there they’d had put me in a closed facility to electrocute me or chemically lobotomize me if I spilled the beans on the clot shot there, so I feel no guilt. Anyway, fake terrorist incidents. Fake news. The jab is highly effective.

  8. JayD,

    It is okay to have your own opinion about which country is safest for Jews, but how dare you put that sick emoji about the killing of Jews!?!?

    Is that your reaction every time you here about a קדוש killed ר”ל in Eretz Yisroel? You laugh and say “told you so”!?!?

    You should be ashamed of yourself!

  9. If someone would bring into his home deadly poisonous man eating snakes and let them roam around freely.
    And one morning he wakes up, and his family is killed and devoured by the snakes.
    Whom would we blame? ,of course the answer is, it’s that criminally insane human being who brought them in and let them roam freely, (the snakes were just doing what they were genetically predisposed to do).
    Israel is the only country that 20% of it’s population consist of murderous Jew hating poisonous snakes, who each and every one of them is ready and willing to slit the throat of every Jewish man woman and child.
    They pray five times a day, that their cousins surrounding Israel would finally invade and finish her off in a sea of blood and tears.
    Each and every Muslim kid, as soon as he or she starts kindergarten is brainwashed into believing that killing Jews is one of the commandments of allah,and there is no bigger mitzvah than murdering a Jew, and it’s a guarantee to entering paradise.
    This is an untenable situation, as long as Muslim are allowed to live within Israel, Jewish blood will be flowing in the holy land.
    The one and ONLY solution to this tragedy, is Rav Meir Kahane’s h”y”d solution “THEY ALL MUST GO”
    Deep down in their hearts even the leftist’s know how true this is.
    Each and every Jew that is murdered by an Arab murderous snake,that murderous Arab has partner to the crime, it’s none other than the government itself who is the owner of the house and let’s these murderous snakes roam around freely and devour one Jew after another.

  10. The six decisions are all WORTHLESS, nothing will change, JEWISH blood would keep on flowing in our holy land.
    There is only ONE DECISION that needs to be implemented, and it’s

  11. JayD,

    Your “freedom” in the USA can quickly end with a knife in your guts while you’re walking down the sidewalk or a swift shove in front of an oncoming train. Every time you thumb your self-righteous nose at our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael, you bring your own ugly end that much closer.

  12. @GadolHadofi

    Please stop the Hate.

    I have the right to speak out loudly the truth and I dont deserve to be attacked on a personal level.

    The fact is that jews in USA have more easily the galut than people living in isreal.

    Secondly, the fathers of Zionist movement supported the idea of killing jews to achieve Zionist goals! That being said, the attack should not be seen as horrific. Because it helps with ultimate goal of your Zionist regime 😉

  13. jayD,

    I don’t have a “Zionist regime” but I do have millions of brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael, all more worthy of life, health and happiness than you are. Your “truth” is that they should all be evicted from their homes and lives while you sit fat and happy in the USA. You’re the hater and deserve every bit of suffering you wish upon them. Go right ahead, speak as loudly as you want, you’re only bringing your own demise that much closer.

  14. Don’t blame this ignorant Jew hating rat calling himself “jayD.
    He most probably grew up and was educated in that Israel hating insane asylum called Satmar.
    Where this poor kid was brainwashed with an irrational and pathological hatred towards Eretz Yisroel and it’s inhabitants.
