Katz: How to stop Arab violence

Yaacov Katz (former MK), INN

4. Instead, a terrorist, whether he is a rock-thrower/firecracker hurler/knife wielder/murderous driver/firebomb attacker has to know that as a result of his violence, his entire village will be under 24/7 curfew for at least a month. Closing a village to traffic for a month in Kfar Kana, with no one leaving for work or returning from it, no one going in or out, would result in not one stone being thrown again. We must get to the population through their pockets and they will control the hooligans and terrorists.

The source of Arab violence is the 24/7 incitement on Arab media, where Jews are portrayed as pigs, snakes and monkeys that must be destroyed, even if the appear to be “in the image” of women and children.

1. An Arab has to be an angel to avoid being influenced by the barrage of incitement to violence that he hears all day. That is why compassion will not work here. The more goodwill gestures there are, the more we are despised.

2. The past 150 years have shown that the only thing Arab hooligans understand is deterrence. If we do not implement a policy of “hands-on” intervention reaching everywhere, the present situation in which they reach everywhere instead will continue, as in the biblical words said by the angel who appeared to Hagar about her son Ishmael:” his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him”.

3. The solution does not lie in pinpointing the family of one terrorist or another. The entire Arab population must feel the strong hand of Israel’s government and its armed forces. Today the Arab public barely sees the IDF and doesn’t realize its power and strength, so that is not a deterrent anymore.

4. Instead, a terrorist, whether he is a rock-thrower/firecracker hurler/knife wielder/murderous driver/firebomb attacker has to know that as a result of his violence, his entire village will be under 24/7 curfew for at least a month.

We must get to the population through their pockets and they will control the hooligans and terrorists.

5. The economic condition of Israel’s Arabs is excellent. One can see it by looking at their homes and cars. They build wherever they wish, pursue whatever careers they choose. Somehow, the Jewish population is always on the defensive and constantly apologizing.

6. In addition, we should bring 75,000 construction workers from China as we did 13 years ago. We must not let construction be dependent on Arab workers.

  1. @ Ted Belman:

    “[W]e are not confronted by “individual wrong doing” What we have are individuals that are indoctrinated by the collective including the PA, the clerics and the media. These individuals are encourage to wrong do and are venerated as heros of the collective and paid for their trouble. The way I see it the collective is responsible. It aids and abets such wrong doing.

    What we have here is not an individual that is breaking the law so much as a collective which is breaking the law. The moment the collective stops the incitement and support for wrong doing then there will be no need for collective punishment.”

    Right on the money.

    You have thought thru the questions I raised for Buzz.

    Here’s hoping he thinks them thru as well.

  2. Buzz of the Orient Said:

    And thereby feed fodder to those who say the Israelis use collective punishment for individual wrongdoings.

    We must resist the notion that collective punishment is never appropriate. Liberals and leftists keep repeating that it is unacceptable. But we are not confronted by “individual wrong doing” What we have are individuals that are indoctrinated by the collective including the PA, the clerics and the media. These individuals are encourage to wrong do and are venerated as heros of the collective and paid for their trouble. The way I see it the collective is responsible. It aids and abets such wrong doing.

    What we have here is not an individual that is breaking the law so much as a collective which is breaking the law. The moment the collective stops the incitement and support for wrong doing then there will be no need for collective punishment. Is not martial law collective punishment? Of course it is but such law can be invoked anywhere. We could call this Martial law lite. If we pass a law limiting freedom of speech because some people abuse it, is this not collective punishment. And on and on.

  3. @ Buzz of the Orient:

    “We must get to the population through their pockets and they will control the hooligans and terrorists.”

    “And thereby feed fodder to those who say the Israelis use collective punishment .”

    You mean those who are so inclined won’t make such charges ANYWAY?

    The truth is that, in re tribally (as distinct from civically) organized societies:

    — everywhere collective punishment is used, it WORKS

    — and that where it isn’t used, nothing else DOES work.

    The Jordanians used it because it had worked for the Brits in dealing w/ that culture.

    The Brits used it because it had worked for the Ottomans in dealing w/ that culture.

    Nothing succeeds like success.

    “…for individual wrongdoings.”

    DEFINE this expression, please, in the context of the Israel-Pali struggle.

    Are not terrorist acts aimed at ‘punishing’ ISRAELIS collectively?

  4. The British razed entire villages, laid massive fines on others, conducted mass demolitions and resorted to deportations to quell Arab unrest. It eventually worked.

    For Israel, acting out of fear of “what will the world say” will not guarantee its survival. The times call for extreme and uncompromising measures – not appeasement and capitulation – in the face of Arab incitement and terror.

  5. 4.

    Seems like this prophesy is true.

    good description…
    hopefully, the good parts are also true.

    @ bernard ross:

    It was foretold: Gen.16
    9 Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10 The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

    11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:

    “You are now pregnant
    and you will give birth to a son.
    You shall name him Ishmael,[a]
    for the Lord has heard of your misery.
    12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
    his hand will be against everyone
    and everyone’s hand against him,
    and he will live in hostility
    toward[b] all his brothers.”

    Seems like this prophesy is true. 🙁

    Hang them ‘on an electric pole,’ urges Sultan Abu Al-Einein

    any form of anti semitism in Israel by arabs should bring manadatory deportation; did the Jews go to Israel to be pogrommed by arabs under their own rule?
    In einens case he should get an extra judicial killing for giving me a headache as a result of persistent arab whining
