Swastikas sprayed on ancient synagogue near Jericho

Worshippers discover Palestinian flags, ‘Palestine is ours’ slogans in synagogue in Naaran

ynet

Swastikas, Palestinian flags and “Palestine is ours” slogans were spray-painted on the ancient synagogue in Naaran near Jericho overnight.

Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein condemned the act and remarked it was no wonder the Palestinians desecrate an ancient synagogue “after destroying and desecrating Temple Mount remnants.”

The Minister added, “The incident reaffirms the belief that Jewish holy sites must be under Israel’s sovereignty.”
 
The ancient synagogue in Naaran was built in the Sixth Century and attracts both worshippers and pilgrims. The compound contains an ancient mosaic and archeological treasures.
 
On Friday, a group of worshippers was shocked to find that the site had been vandalized. “I was shocked to see the destruction,” said Dr. Yoel Elitzur who led the group. “It turns out that general values of respect for antiques mean nothing to these savages. The site must be placed under Jewish control as soon as possible.”

Members of a group organizing visits to the site expressed outrage over the vandalism and lack of Jewish security at the synagogue.

“The historic mosaic is an important testament of our people’s history. A people that do not guard their past have no future. If the IDF is incapable, we will protect the synagogue with our bodies.”

Other elements in the Right said that the incident could cause an escalation. MK Michael Ben Ari (National Union) called on the Shin Bet and Israel Police “to treat the desecration of the synagogue as if it were a mosque otherwise the government will inspire a series of Price Tag acts.”

Report: Obama seeking Russia aid in orderly Syria regime change

NOVANEWS
Barck Obama - AP- 24.4.2012
U.S. President Barack Obama is working to convince Russia to join an effort to implement a Yemen-style transfer of power in war-torn Syria, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

According to Obama’s reported plan, Syrian President Bashar Assad would step down from power, while several members of his regime would remain in office, as was the case with ousted Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh earlier this year.

To accomplish this, the U.S. president is reportedly seeking the aid of staunch Assad ally Russia, hoping to sway Moscow away from its total objection to the idea of regime change in Syria.

U.S. administration officials, speaking to the New York Times on condition of anonymity, said that Obama had already brought up the plan during a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at the Group of 8 meeting at Camp David last week, adding that Medvedev appeared receptive.

A senior official told the New York Times that during the meeting “Medvedev raised the example of Mubarak in a cage,” as a negative form of power transfer, to which Obama “countered with Yemen, and the indication was, yes, this was something we could talk about.”

However, while Medvedev did not outright reject the notion of a Yemen-style power transfer, the final say would have to be that of Russian President Vladimir Putin, with which Obama will discuss the issue in a meeting planned for next month.

According to the New York Times Obama’s National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, raised the plan with Mr. Putin in Moscow three weeks ago.

In addition, American officials told the Times that Russia would be allowed to retain its influence in post-Assad Syria, saying: “Look, we recognize that Russia wants to have a continued influence in Syria,” adding that the U.S. “interest is in stabilizing the situation, not eliminating Russian influence.”

Earlier Saturday, the international community forcibly criticized Assad’s regime after the United Nations said that more than 92 people were killed in what activists described as an artillery barrage by government forces on the central Syrian town of Houla.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement, “Those who perpetrated this atrocity must be identified and held to account. The United States will work with the international community to intensify our pressure on Assad and his cronies, whose rule by murder and fear must come to an end.”

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius condemned the violence as a “massacre”, and said he wanted to arrange a meeting in Paris of the Friends of Syria, a group that brings together Western and Arab countries keen to remove Assad.

U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was coordinating a “strong response” to the killings and would call for the Security Council to meet in the coming days.

In a statement, Arab League head Nabil Elaraby called the killing in Houla a “horrific crime”, urging the UN Security Council – where Russia and China have protected Syria – to “stop the escalation of killing and violence by armed gangs and government military forces.”

Panetta: Pentagon ‘Ready’ to Attack Iran

NOVANEWS

 

Speaking today on ABC’s This Week, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta reiterated comments made in the past by other officials that the US is “ready” to launch a military attack on Iran and will do so as soon as President Obama decides to.

We will do everything we can to prevent Iran from developing a weapon, Panetta added, ignoring that US intelligence agencies agree Iran is not attempting to do anything of the sort. Panetta claimed only last week that an attack was not being considered.

Panetta’s comments come just days after the end of the last round of diplomatic talks with Iran, which ended with no agreement, but a promise to meet for more talks next month in Moscow. An expected deal fell apart when the US announced that it would never accept Iran’s civilian uranium enrichment.

Panetta went on to say that the “international community’s been unified” on the move, and that the Pentagon is ready for any possibilities of an attack on Iran. Despite this claim, it seems clear that neither Russia nor China is “united” on the call to war.

Syria: Killed by Zio-Nazi Backed/Trained Terrorists

Netanyahu: Israel ‘appalled’ by Syria massacre; Iran and Hezbollah must also be held responsible

by crescentandcross

For the first time since the Syrian uprising began over a year ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement on Sunday condemning the slaughter.

ed note–the first thing to ntoe is that Israelis are NOT ‘appalled’ at any Gentile deaths, and ESPECIALLY not Arab

ones. Those people killed over the weekend were killed by Israeli-backed/trained terrorists who were given orders

to commit this massacre just prior to the meeting between Annan and Assad. As with the rest of the ‘Arab Spring’,

it is an Israeli-designed plan to replace the various leaders in the Middle East so that the situation can be created

that will eventually justify Israel’s going to war against these various countries and taking more of their land, just

as she did in 1967.

Haaretz

In the statement, released by the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu said he was “appalled at the continuous

slaughter of innocent civilians by [President Bashar] Assad’s forces.” He added that “Iran and Hezbollah cannot be

separated from Assad’s massacre, and the world needs to take action against them as well.”

On Saturday, Syrian activists reported that a Syrian artillery barrage killed at least 108 people, including dozens of

children, in the worst violence since the start of a UN peace plan to staunch the flow of blood from Syria’s uprising.

The bloodied bodies of children, some with their skulls rent by shrapnel, were shown lying in a room to the sound of

wailing in footage posted to YouTube which purported to show the victims of the shelling in the central town of Houla

on Friday.

In the past 16 months Netanyahu has said almost nothing about the situation in Syria, nor did he release any

statements condemning the violence; when he did relate to the issue, it was in response to questions he was asked.

On the other hand, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has taken a tough stand on the matter, and in recent months

has repeatedly called for Assad to resign. He also offered humanitarian aid to the Syrian people.

Netanyahu disagreed with Lieberman’s approach – favoring not to officially comment on the situation – yet his

silence was construed by many in the international community, the Arab world and the Syrian opposition as an

interest in preserving Assad’s regime.

Late Sunday, the UN Security Council on Sunday unanimously condemned the Syrian government for heavy-weapons

attacks on the town of Houla, the site of Saturday’s massacre, the council president said.

“The Security Council condemned in the strongest possible terms the killings, confirmed by United Nations observers,

of dozens of men, women and children and the wounding of hundreds more in the village of (Houla), near Homs, in

attacks that involved a series of government artillery and tank shellings on a residential neighborhood,” the non-

binding statement said.

“The Security Council also condemned the killing of civilians by shooting at close range and by severe physical

abuse,” said the statement, which was read out after the council’s three-hour emergency meeting by Azerbaijan’s

Deputy UN Ambassador Tofig Musayev.

On Saturday, the New York Times reported that U.S. President Barack Obama is working to convince Russia to join

an effort to implement a Yemen-style transfer of power in Syria.

According to Obama’s reported plan, President Assad would step down from power, while several members of his

regime would remain in office, as was the case with ousted Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh earlier this year.

To accomplish this, the U.S. president is reportedly seeking the aid of staunch Assad ally Russia, hoping to sway

Moscow away from its total objection to the idea of regime change in Syria.

Barak calls for intervention by int’l community in Syria

jpost.com

Defense Minister Ehud Barak called for international intervention in Syria on Sunday amid reports that 116 civilians,

including women and children, were massacred in the city of Houla.

He said it was proof of why Israel needed a strong military to protect it when needed.

“The massacre perpetrated by the Assad regime in Houla and the murder of children, women and elderly over the

past year obligates the world to intervene,” Barak said. “The barbaric crimes that Assad’s regime commits and the

support it enjoys from Iran and Hezbollah, obligate the world to act to stop it.”

Nazi settler shoots Palestinian in West Bank

NOVANEWS

Palestinian settlers clash - AP - May 19, 2012

Residents said about 25 Nazi settlers, some of them carrying guns, set fire to wheat fields in the village of Orif, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

An Israeli settler shot and wounded a Palestinian man on Saturday in a clash that began when a group of settlers set fire to fields belonging to a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank, officials said.

Residents said about 25 settlers, some of them carrying guns, set fire to wheat fields in the village of Orif, which is near the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Some villagers came out to extinguish the fire and clashed with the settlers, said Nablus official Kassan Daglas. Israeli soldiers then came to the scene and broke up the clashes.

The Palestinian was shot in the stomach, medical officials said, and taken to the hospital.

The Israeli military said it was looking in to the incident.

The military is investigating a similar incident from last week in which a video distributed by an anti-settlement group appeared to show a settler shooting and wounding a Palestinian during a confrontation with rock-throwing Palestinians, as soldiers stood by.

Op-ed: Dina Avramson says Jews should dispose of notion that they are superior to other people

ed note–Although still problematic, given her affection for the Torah, with all its murder, rape, lying, exploitation, etc, nevertheless an interesting editorial written by a Jew who is starting to re-consider the inherent narcissism of the Jewish mindset.

ynet

On the eve of Shavuot I dressed up in white; they say it’s the wedding day of God and His people, so I was ready for it. I prepared all the requirements: Plants to adorn the table and a cold cheese cake in the fridge. All that was left was to clarify the essence of this prominent day, decide to again assume the Torah’s burden upon myself, and read it the whole night as one reads love letters; to recall how God chose us from all the nations and what this really means.
 
He chose us? From all nations? Really? I read online one story of how God went from one nation to another and offered His holy Torah, yet no one wanted it. The Ishmaelites wanted to keep murdering, the Edomites wanted to keep committing adultery, and only the righteous and pure Israelites, who never murder and never commit adultery, told God: “We shall do and hear.”

Religious singer Avraham Fried went even further. Instead of singing about Ishmaelites and Edomites, he sang about adulterous French, greedy Brits, Americans who don’t know how to honor their father and mother, and thieving Arabs. Yet only the Jew with the prayer shawl is the righteous hero and is given the Torah. We’re so lucky.

I would laugh if it wasn’t so sad – the self-conviction that Jews possess all that is pure and noble and maintain a constant connection to divinity and to infinite light, while all other nations of the world are overcome by promiscuity, lust and robbery. We are holy, yet they are filled with darkness and spiritual impurity.

So is that the case? No, would say those in the know. It’s not about us being above them; we are simply like an elite unit. We chose to assume the burden for the sake of the others. We took upon ourselves tougher missions in order to lead the world to a better place. I may be able to accept this explanation – the understanding that we chose strict laws in order to achieve lofty goals – yet I most certainly cannot accept the distinction between us and the rest of the world, as if we are the chosen son.

Does God love them less?

Based on my limited knowledge, I believe that every nation has its way of connecting to God. The Indians, who hail from the element of wind, do well with lengthy meditations, while Islam, which hails from the fire element, is required to assume great modesty. The Sufis connect via dance and song, and native Americans who come from the element of earth drink a muddy beverage that that leads them to divinity.

Does God love them less? Does He appreciate their work less? Is a Buddhist monk who sits in a cave for three years less connected than me?

As a graduate of religious Jewish education, I notice that to this day I face a mental-psychological barrier when facing non-Jews. I discover that deep within me I believe that I am nobler than them and I stutter when I need to explain why I cannot marry a gentile. What can I tell them, that a Jew must not mix in with a gentile soul because it is of lower strata? When I search for the word “soul” online, I find explanations on religious websites noting that Jews have two souls, a beastly one and a divine one, while non-Jews only have one, beastly soul.

I realize that my knowledge is only akin to a drop in the ocean and that had I immersed myself in studies I would be able to understand the issues more thoroughly. However, most people do not spend hours upon hours studying and are therefore left with the superficial knowledge of the chosen people’s superiority. Only this week I received an invitation on Facebook to join a group called “Let’s show the Sudanese that we rule!” This is what happens when you think you’re better than someone else.

Perhaps the time has come to leave behind this flawed way of thinking, as though we are favored and better understand what’s right for the world, as though our Torah is the exclusive truth across the universe and there are no other ways to experience a revelation, and as though any foreigner who wishes to live in our country is a threat.

So on the eve of Shavuot I got dressed in white and headed to the synagogue to read, with love, the words of the Torah. I know that for me this is the most suitable way to connect to the infinite light, but I also know that somewhere on the other side of the planet there are different people who connect to it in a different way, and they are considered no less precious children.

NATO strike kills mother, father and their six children

NOVANEWS

Afghanistan Map

Afghan authorities said on Sunday that an airstrike by the U.S.-led NATO coalition killed eight members of a family in eastern Afghanistan.

The coalition said it was aware of the allegation and was investigating the incident late Saturday in Paktia province.

“We acknowledge that coalition forces were conducting an operation in Paktia province against a large number of insurgents last night and we also are aware of the media reports today of civilian casualty allegations in that area,” said Army Lt. Col. Jimmie Cummings, a spokesman for the NATO coalition.

“We are currently looking into this and will release more information as appropriate.”

Actions of the Taliban kill more civilians than foreign forces, but the deaths of citizens caught in the crossfire of the decade-long war continue to be an irritant in President Hamid Karzai’s relationship with his international partners.

Earlier this month, the Afghan president warned that civilian casualties caused by NATO airstrikes could undermine the strategic partnership agreement he just signed with the U.S.

Rohullah Samon, a spokesman for the governor of Paktia province, said Mohammad Shafi, his wife and their six children died in an airstrike around 8 p.m. in Suri Khail village of Gurda Saria district.

“Shafi was not a Taliban. He was not in any opposition group against the government. He was a villager,” Samon said. “Right now, we are working on this case to find out the ages of their children and how many of them are boys and girls.”

Any NATO airstrike that leads to civilian deaths erodes the Afghan people’s trust in foreign forces.

“If the lives of Afghan people are not safe, the signing of the strategic partnership has no meaning,” Karzai’s office said earlier this month.

Karzai’s warning came after Afghan officials reported that 18 civilians had died recently in four airstrikes in Logar, Kapisa, Badghis and Helmand provinces.

Last year was the deadliest on record for civilians in the Afghan war, with 3,021 killed as insurgents ratcheted up violence with suicide attacks and roadside bombs, the United Nations said in its latest report on civilian deaths. The U.N. attributed 77 percent of the deaths to insurgent attacks and 14 percent to actions by international and Afghan troops. Nine percent of cases were classified as having an unknown cause.

Two civilians died Sunday when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb in Marjah district of Helmand province in the south, said provincial spokesman Daud Ahmadi.

Separately, NATO reported Sunday that four coalition service members had died in roadside bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan.

NATO said in a statement that all four deaths occurred Saturday. It provided no other details on the attacks, including the nationalities of the service members.

One is thought to be a British soldier killed Saturday in an explosion in the Nahr-e Saraj region of southern Helmand province. The British Ministry of Defense announced late Saturday that the soldier died while traveling in a vehicle.

Another NATO service member died Friday in an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan.

Their deaths bring to 34 the number of NATO service members killed so far this month in Afghanistan, for a total of 166 this year. A total of 414 members of British forces have died since operations in Afghanistan began more than 10 years ago.

The Afghan Ministry of Interior also announced Sunday that six insurgents were killed Saturday in joint operations in four eastern provinces. Another three were killed when the roadside bombs they were trying to plant detonated in Helmand and Kandahar provinces.

By Gilad Atzmon

 

The Telegraph reported yesterday that “ministers have criticised Britain’s biggest exam board after pupils were asked to explain ‘why some people are prejudiced against Jews’ as part of a GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education).

Apparently more than 1,000 teenagers are believed to have sat the religious studies test papers, which challenged pupils to assess the reasons behind anti-Semitism.

The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance, which set the exam, rightly said that the question acknowledged that “some people hold prejudices” – they probably expected the students to examine the reasons that lead to anti Jewish feelings rather than simply justifying them.

Michael Gove, the Education Secretary who is notorious for his pro Israeli stand and his intimate relationships with the Jewish lobby, has managed to produce a particularly lame statement that should disqualify him from any holding any position related to education.

To suggest that anti-Semitism can ever be explained, rather than condemned, is insensitive and, frankly, bizarre,

antisemitism

Gove told The Jewish Chronicle.  The ‘education’ minister should actually accept that every social phenomenon or tendency should be subject to an academic scrutiny, scientific research and critical examination. The education minister should actually encourage critical thinking and freedom of thought, however, being one of the pillars of the CFI (conservative Friends of Israel) we shouldn’t really expect a drop of integrity from Minister Gove.

Jon Benjamin, chief executive of the infamous ultra Zionist Board of Deputies of British Jews  (BOD), said:

Clearly this is unacceptable and has nothing whatsoever to do with Jews or Judaism.

Benjamin and the BOD have been pouring news about the ‘rise’ of anti Semitism for years. One would wonder why are they now tormented by the attempt to question the reasoning behind the phenomenon that concerns them so much and for so long.

The exam board insisted that the question was part of a paper focusing on Judaism and the “relevant part of the syllabus covers prejudice and discrimination with reference to race, religion and the Jewish experience of persecution”.

But here comes the interesting bit. While the question is fully legitimate and deserves a thorough examination, one may wonder how would the exam board expect to mark some academically valid possible answers. For instance, how would a board’s examiner mark a young truth telling British student who may suggest that anti Jewish feelings could be realised as a direct reaction to the concerning facts that it was the Jewish Lobby led by Lord Levy that financed the Labour government that took us into an illegal War in Iraq? The student may argue that some people mistakenly identify Jews (as a collective) with the horrendous non-ethical acts of just a few Jews, this is where prejudice, plays its  role.  Bearing in mind it was also Jewish chronicle writers such as David Aaronovitch and Nick Cohen who were supporting this criminal act in the mainstream media, such an answer is coherent and consistent with the facts.  Another honest student may suggest that with 80% of the Tory MPs (including education minister Michael Gove ) being CFI  members there is a reason to believe that the British Government is under the control of a foreign power. Following the pressure of the CFI, the Tory government recently amended the British Universal Jurisdiction law just to allow Israel war criminal to visit the Kingdom. I guess that some students must be clever enough to notice that acts taken by British  politicians who shamelessly attempt to appease their pro Israeli paymasters on the expense of British values and ethical consideration actually expose Jews in this country to some potential animosity. How would the exam board mark such a reasonable and critical young and innocent thinking?

It seems as if the exam board is not really prepared to tackle the issue seriously. Its representative told the Jewish Chronicle

we would expect [students to refer] to the Holocaust to illustrate prejudice based on irrational fear, ignorance and scapegoating.

In other words, the British education system admits here openly that it expects students to repeat textbook ready-made answers rather than thinking critically and thoroughly. Is it really ‘irrational’  to be tormented by the irritating idea that the vast majority  of your leading party MPs are friends of a non-ethical, racist and expansionist foreign power? Is it reasonable to wonder why Jewish Chronicle Writers were over represented in some pro war advocacy? Is it really  unreasonable for a young British student to ask why the American Jewish Lobby AIPAC is pushing for a war against Iran that can escalate into a nuclear conflict? Shouldn’t British students try to examine the relationships between the Jewish Lobby and the Jewish community? Shouldn’t Religious students try to examine the complex relationship between Jews, Judaism and Jewishness? Shouldn’t they look into the relationship between The Old Testament and IDF’s crimes against humanity? For sure they need do, this is actually the real meaning of education.  To educate is to teach how to learn said Martin Heidegger, but in Britain 2012 Education means to teach student how to answer the  appropriate kosher answer.

As it happens the exam board reacted quickly and submissively to Jewish pressure. Its representative said

the board is obviously concerned that this question may have caused offence, as this was absolutely not our intention.

I guess that the exam board who were obviously subject to some relentless pressure may now be able to form their own answer to the question. They may grasp by now what is to root cause of ‘anti Jewish prejudice’ and it has nothing to do with the ‘holocaust’, ignorance’ or ‘irrationality’. It is actually the natural reaction to abuse of our most precious intellectual right, the freedom to think.

Another uniquely banal mind Rabbi David Meyer, the executive head of Hasmonean  High School, told the Telegraph that the question had “no place” in an exam.

The role of education is to remove prejudices and not to justify them,” he said.

It is pretty amusing or actually sad to find out that a Rabbi and an executive head of a Jewish school doesn’t know the difference between  ‘question’ and  ‘justification’. However, Rabbi Meyer, surely knows that Rabbinical and Talmudic education encourages debate and critical thinking. I wonder why Rabbi Meyer doesn’t approve the idea that Goyim teenager should also learn how to think critically and even learn how to debate?

Seemingly, the Telegraph found only one single voice of reason in the entire kingdom.  Clive Lawton, formerly an A-level chief examiner for religious studies, said: “I do understand why people might react negatively to the question, but it is a legitimate one.”

If anyone including Michael Gove and the BOD want to prevent the rise of anti Jewish feelings and prejudice in general they may want to look briefly in the mirror. It is their attitude that put Jews at a growing risk. As it happens, it is always Jewish power exercised by just a very few that introduces danger to the entire Jewish community and beyond.

Zio-Nazi MK: I didn’t mean to shame Holocaust by calling African migrants a ‘cancer’

NOVANEWS

Miri Regev - Tomer Appelbaum - May 21, 2012

ed note–typical Jewish mindset. She is not worried about how her remarks are considered abusive and racist against those against whom they were directed. Rather, she is worried that her comments will somehow do shame to the memory of Jewish suffering, real or imagined.
And these people continue to wonder why they are/have been hated throughout history.
Likud MK Miri Regev, who came under fire last week after calling African migrants “a cancer” in Israeli society, apologized for the first time for her comments on Sunday, opting, however, to leave the migrants out of her apology.

Regev’s controversial comments came during a violent rally staged by residents of Tel Aviv’s south – where many African migrants live – to protest rising crime rates in the area. In the rally, the Likud MK said “the Sudanese are a cancer in our body.”

She was later criticized for inflaming the protesters, with angry demonstrators later going on to attack African passers-by and journalists, breaking into and looting shops associated with the African migrant community and shattering car windshields.

At the time, Regev condemned “any violence from any side, but I understand the rage and hurt of the residents, of the families that live there. They tell us: ‘Help us. We are being humiliated, look how we live, we are afraid to leave the house.’”

However, speaking to Israeli media outlets over the weekend and on Sunday, Regev chose to apologize for calling the Sudanese a cancer, opting however, to direct her apology to Holocaust survivors and cancer patients.

“When I compared the migrant worker phenomenon to cancer I was referring to the way the phenomenon had spread, and not anything else. If anyone took it otherwise and was consequently offended, I apologize and I surely did not intend to hurt either Holocaust survivors or cancer patients,” she said.

Regev told Maariv that she was very “attuned to the issue of the Holocaust. The memory of the Holocaust is seared deeply into my heart back from my time in high school when I prepared a paper on the subject.”

“Up until a year ago I did not set foot in Germany, and made it a point not to purchase German-made products,” the Likud MK and former army spokesperson said, adding: “When I was with an IDF delegation in Auschwitz I didn’t stop crying, and so if someone attributed a wrong interpretation of my comments or was offended by them, I apologize.”

Regev added that “she didn’t talk about people as being cancer but of an infiltration phenomenon that was spreading.”

The Likud MK also added that she was sensitive to the feelings of cancer patients, adding that she was herself involved with the care given to a boy with cancer, telling the website of Israeli daily Maariv that she understands the emotions involved with ta mention of the disease.

“When [former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin] said the settlers were a cancer, no one made any fuss. When [Peace Now head] Yariv Oppenheimer speaks of the settlements as caner, everyone is silent. When I talk about the phenomenon, I get attacked just became I’m a leader from the right-wing,” Regev added.

Last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised that his government would address the issue of African migrants in Israel, one day after a protest against them by residents of south Tel Aviv turned violent.

“The infiltrator problem must be solved, and we will solve it,” Netanyahu said on Thursday afternoon, speaking at an event in Tel Aviv.

He also refered to the construction of a fence on the Egypt-Israel border, saying, “We will complete construction of the fence within two months, and soon we will begin sending infiltrators back to their countries of origin.”

The prime minister also condemned the actions of demonstrators and Knesset members on Wednesday, when demonstrators attacked African migrants in South Tel Aviv.

“I want to make it clear that there is no place for the statements and actions that we witnessed yesterday. I say these things to the public figures and to the residents of south Tel Aviv, whose pain I understand,” he said.
