The United Nations Chapter7, Article 51 states: “Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security…”
It is not written
“individual state”, but “the inherent right of individual”! By not allowing formation of Jewish
self-defense groups, which would be able to protect communities from enemies
more effectively than the government sometimes can,
Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security.” - Chapter VII, Article 51 of the United Nations Charter.
For many years the
United Nations have done nothing to stop Arab states and so-called Palestinians
terror against Israel and Jewish individuals living in the Jewish state. Therefore, not just
MK Hanin Zoabi of the Arab Joint List called for new phase in terror war, demanding that instead of lone attacks, wide-ranging popular actions are needed, and that only a "popular struggle" including thousands of Arabs can create a "true popular intifada" that can make a strategic change in the reality on the ground.
The security cabinet on Tuesday night approved a series of additional security measures to deal with the recent wave of terror. Among the measures upon which it was decided:
- The Cabinet authorized the Israeli
police to impose a closure or seal points of friction in
- In addition to the demolition of homes of terrorists, rebuilding a home in the place where the home of a terrorist was demolished will be prohibited.
- The assets of terrorists who carried out attacks will be confiscated.
- Permanent residency of terrorists will be revoked.

The mayor of Jerusalem is calling on the city's residents to carry weapons at all times in the wake of a wave of deadly attacks in the last week. "Given the current escalation (of violence) ...those with a licensed firearm who know what to do with it must go out with (their weapon) - it's an imperative," Mayor Nir Barkat told Israel's Army Radio. "In a way, it's like military reserve duty…” (When government is useless – people must take action!)
During his visit to Jordan, India's President Pranab Mukherjee said that India's support for the Palestinian cause is unwavering. Shortly, during the first state visit to Israel by the President of the Republic of India he made vague, non-committal statement "India condemns any kind of terrorism, and we always hope for a non-violent solution to all the problems."
Moderate Jordan – My Foot!
Jordanian security officials are regularly forbidding religious Israeli tourists to bring in tefillin, the ritual phylacteries that Jewish men wear every weekday, saying that Muslims who saw Jews wearing the objects would be offended. (It is time for Israel to become offended with Muslim occupation of Jewish land and al Aqsa mosque standing at the Jewish holiest site!)
Kerry announced his intent to visit the region "to deescalate the tensions, to restore calm", shortly after he said a "massive increase in settlements" over the past year had been followed by the current outbreak of violence.
A "demonstration in solidarity with the al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem" was held in Jaffa, a neighborhood of Tel Aviv that is considered a symbol of coexistence between Arabs and Jews, witnessed clashes between protesters and police that led to arrests, which is not typical of this quiet town. (Israeli Arabs have no loyalty to the state, regardless of how much effort Israel makes to integrate them!)
US State Dept. refuses to assign blame for rising violence in Israel. The Obama administration said Tuesday that it has asked both Israel and the Palestinian Authority to take steps to stop the violence that has escalated over the last few weeks, but refused to take a position on which side was more to blame for the violence. “…we want to see both sides take affirmative steps, affirmative actions, that reduce tensions in the region…” (“both sides” travesty again!)
After ongoing Palestinian riots, which have including shootings, stabbings, and rock and Molotov cocktail throwing - as well as the murder of 4 Israeli civilians - Mahmoud Abbas justified it all as legitimate defense of holy sites.
Amnesty International has accused Kurdish armed units in Northern Syria of razing Arab and Turkmen villages, actions it says amounted to war crimes. Researchers visited 14 towns and villages controlled by Kurdish forces in Hasakah and Raqqa provinces. "They pulled us out of our homes and began burning the home … they brought the bulldozers... They demolished home after home until the entire village was destroyed," said one witness. (On the way to achieve their independence, Kurds are removing other ‘enemy’ ethnicities from the future Kurdistan! Most countries have done it - only Israel can’t - Why?)

These violent acts of solidarity with the Palestinians are a clear indication to whom the loyalty of Arab Israelis is given.
Israeli officials (as usual) try to play down these acts of insurgency by claiming the rioters are a minority amongst local Arabs. While it may be true that a majority of Arab Israelis prefer co-existence, it is also true that it is the militant minority that matters.
This militant minority does not represent a fringe, but actually includes the Arab Israeli leadership, which almost without exception shares the exact same Palestinian agenda that envisions not a two-state solution, but the eradication of the Jewish state.
Arab Member of Knesset Ahmad Tibi of the United Arab List has demonstrated time and again his solidarity with his Palestinian compatriots, and like them sees dead terrorists as shahids (martyrs). Arab MKs call Israeli soldiers "murderers," and routinely use the exact same inciting rhetoric heard from Palestinian leaders. (Only removal of all enemies from Jewish land will end terror the Arabs regularly unleash on Jews!)
