Barkat: Use live bullets on stone throwers

“Use live ammunition if they are to counter escalating attacks against them and against Jewish civilians”.

Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat wants the police to shoot stone throwing Arab youth.
Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat wants the police to shoot stone throwing Arab youth.

These are the words of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. He has declared “war” against Palestinian youths who throw firebombs and rocks in the capital, saying police must use live ammunition if they are to counter escalating attacks against them and against Jewish civilians.

In a phone interview Wednesday with The Times of Israel, Barkat, who has served as mayor since 2008, insisted that such violence was “unacceptable anywhere else in the world” and that Israel has been too “merciful.”

Youth from some of Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods have been regularly throwing firebombs, rocks, firecrackers and glass bottles filled with paint at residents, in some areas on a nightly basis. The recent unrest on the Temple Mount, however, has brought about a surge in such attacks, resulting in the death of one Jerusalem resident earlier this week. Alexander Levlovitch’s car was pelted with rocks in East Talpiot as he drove home from a Rosh Hashanah dinner on Sunday night, causing him to veer off course and smash into a telephone pole.

My comment:

Israel is fighting an uphill battle for the control of Jerusalem.  When Israeli Arabs throw stones on Jewish citizens, there has to be a stern reaction. They must be arrested, and granted long term imprisonment. If there are no prisons cells available, build new. The Negev desert is large.

If Israel starts to shoot live ammunition on these Arab youth, the World will get more ammunition against the Jewish state. There will be calls for International intervention, and a United Nations “peace keeping force” to be installed in East Jerusalem.  The Zionist state will literally be put under global administration.

I wish the Jewish people could understand that there is only one solution to this problem. And that is a surrender to their own Messiah.  Unfortunately, before His return, it will only get worse. The forces of Fascism will create trouble, to trigger a reaction. The Jews have always been, and will always be blamed. Till the day the Zionist state surrender and accept the universally accepted Islamic reoccupation and control over East Jerusalem.

Such a “peace” movement of stone throwers is only one of the deceptive measure used by the enemies of God. They will all hail the last man of lawlessness in Jerusalem. Only whose who have their names written in the book of life will oppose his rule.

Do not be one of the fools who believe in the present deception. Await the incoming Lion of Judah, the returning Messiah of the Bible. Amen.

      Shalom and love in Jesus.

      From Ephesians 6:

      10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

      14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

  1. Of all the wars all over with Israel, Even G-d killed many that was after the Jews and also told them to kill anyone trying to take the land. We all know the arabs love allah satan abover their own children. Right now all families in Gaza sit in the dard refusing the deal with Israel..G-d promies the Jews would win any way you look at it in the last wars..and when it looks like Israel will be thrown into the sea, HE WILL SHOW UP..Shalom

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      The Jews must never become evil, because their enemies are evil. That is my point. Second: The Law of Moses was not made for the gentiles. It was written for the Jews. There was a death penalty for Jews, who broke centain laws. The Jewish people needs to clean up their own mess, before pointing fingers on others. Or it has to be branded as hypocricy. Shooting stone throwing Arabs included.

      Regardless of the unrighteusness of the Jewish people, the gentiles are supposed to bless them and stand up for thier right to live in peace inside Zion.

  2. It’s interesting as I went back to read the stoning of Stephen. He was a follower of Jesus. Had come to salvation through faith in Christ. Was falsely accused and brought before the Jews. His own kinsmen. Speaking the truth to them in
    Love for them they stoned him and killed him. With no retaliation nor any ability
    To get away he asked ,the father in heaven to forgive them. Now here we see
    Jews of today wanting to retaliate with real bullets. The kind that are meant to rip a body to shreds and kill. I hope they don’t.

    1. Dear Joe.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Israel is the work of the Messiah. He has rebirthed the ancient Jewish nation. Israel is a democracy and a state were there is a rule of law. Unlike all the Arab nations. Let Israel continue to a light in the midts of darkness. Let all Israeli Arabs be granted a legal trial. If they are guilty of a crime, let them be imprisoned.

      1. Dear Joseph

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        I understand your frustration. But having to choose between harming people or being harmed, we must follow the way of the Messiah. We have to pick up our cross every day. I hope I will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to never ever again, raise my hand on anyboddy.

      2. You are a sweet wonderful brother in Christ. Thank you for your admonishment and I will take your words to heart. I notice that you have your (Abba)Fathers eye’s! I love you in Christ!
