(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 ]
