Under pressure: Netanyahu faces political attacks as violence continues

Tuesday, October 6, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - Thousands of conservative activists came together outside of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's residence in Jerusalem Monday night to protest the alleged incompetence of the current government in dealing with the current upswing in violent riots and attacks in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The protest was heavily attended by prominent figures in the religious and political communities including MKs from Netanyahu's own Likud party, highlighting the disunity within the Knesset regarding how best to deescalate the situation and move away from what some are already calling a third Intifada.

The show of harsh opposition to Netanyahu's policies came even as Netanyahu declared Monday that, "We are not prepared to give immunity to any rioter, inciter or terrorist anywhere; therefore, there are no restrictions on the action of our security forces.

"We will also lift restrictions regarding action against inciters," the prime minister continued. "We will act against the Islamic Movement which, together with Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, is the main source of incitement." [ Source ]

  1. Netanyahu is a freight train. He often acts in ham-fisted ways. He always self-righteously believes himself to be right in everything. He is completely disingenuous about making peace with Palestinians and has, in fact, done a great deal to incite distrust among Palestinians toward his government. He's slapped the president of the United States around in some pretty obvious ways and has destroyed his relationship with that person, albeit not with the nation so far. While the people of Israel keep voting for him, Israel's relations with many allies are deteriorating as people see him as someone who is impossible to work with. Is it any mystery, then, how the situation will come about that is prophesied in the Bible where it says, "Where, Oh Israel, are your friends?" Israel will be surrounded by nations that hate it and will have no nations as allies. We see that kind of deterioration happening under Netanyahu. A more diplomatic, less bullheaded politician would have preserved those relationships while still making sure that any deal Israel got with the Palestinians was fair and secure for Israel.

  2. If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is truly a "freight train", I will proudly be one to help build his tracks. Furthermore, Israel will always have Christians in America as allies; at least this one! I only wished that President Obama cared about his people as much as this "chosen Leader" of Israel. No one is perfect, but I know my earthly place in this world; And as a grafted in branch of the "True Vine", I will always be praying for Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the true branches that were only temporarily cut off so that I could be grafted in. Thank you, Jesus and to God be all glory!
