Netanyahu: We Will Respond Harshly to Today’s Terror Attack


netanyahuIsraeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu warned today that Israel would “respond harshly” to the terror attack in Har Nof.

He called it a “cruel murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by despicable murderers.”

The prime minister said the attack was the result of incitment by Hamas and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, which the world had ignored.

His comments were echoed by Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz who said that “the terrorists wielded axes, but the voice was that of Mahmoud Abbas.”

President Reuven Rivlin said that Israel was “experiencing a coordinated campaign; this isn’t a coincidental sequence of events.” He added that “this hour demands national responsibility and unity, and coping together — both with terrorism and with other challenges that face us.”

Israel Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino sounded a note of caution in comments from the site of the attack. “We currently have no magic solution for these kinds of attacks,” he said.

“The terrorists will be defeated,” Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich said. “I call on citizens not to take the law into their own hands.”

  1. These animals believe that if they’re buried with pig, they don’t enter paradise, and therefore their demented fantasies in the afterlife cannot be fulfilled. The Israelis have to take these creatures and bury them with pig inserted in them, video it, and put it online. There will be an uproar, but it’s possible even vermin like them, may actually think twice before giving up their lives and their pathetic delusional afterlife fantasies.

  2. not to take the law into our own hands????how many good people would be alive today if we all carried guns to kill these evil attackers?believe me I want one now and there should be someone packing if not 2 in every shul ,store and school in Israel!

  3. NOTHING will happen. Promises promises promises. Israel is very weak at this point. Nothing gets done without getting rishus from Susan Rice first.

  4. Anyone firing their barbaric Arab
    workers yet????

    I never understood hiring these animals.

    There are plenty of other immigrants willing to take their jobs. Pay the extra Shekel isn’t it worth a life?
