Israel considering removing the detectors.

True to form Israel will cave

JPOST reports:

The government’s security cabinet is slated to hold a discussion Sunday regarding the mounting tensions between Israel and the Palestinians over the government’s decision to install metal detectors at the entrance to the Temple Mount complex in Jerusalem following last week’s deadly terror attack in which two Israeli policemen were killed by three Muslim terrorists.

Channel 10 reported Saturday night that Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan is expected to talk to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to check out alternatives to the metal detectors, including the option of using full body scanners but without conducting an invasive inspection of visitors to the site.

“In these days we are examining options and additional alternatives [to the metal detectors] that will ensure safety and prevent a terror attack from happening again,” Maj.-Gen. Yoav Poly Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, told BBC Arabic on Saturday night.

“We have ideas, including the removal of the magnometers which are solely a security solution, and we’ll see what the existing alternatives are,” he added.

  1. Perhaps once as a last warning to Islamists of all stripes IL should remove the detectors. Next time the genocidal fanatics lose for EVER the control of the TM and expels the waqf. Last warning!

  2. We all know this was a provocation to prevent Abbas from sitting and compromise. The Pal will not miss other opportunities to play stupid and blame IL.

  3. You wouldn’t think of going back to 1967 borders. Why give away what you have gained? Stay the course. Keep the detectors in place. The Arabs have proven once again that they can’t be trusted. Act accordingly.
