Opinion: Arabs Rage and Israel Fears

The “Palestinian” Arabs truly believe that not only the Temple Mount, but all of Israel belongs to them, and they tell you that. Unfortunately, Israel does not stand strong in its belief and fears the world, so it gives and gives and gives. Once we don't give, Arabs rage and riot. And yes, slaughter Jews.
Don't give them what they want - they rage with rocks, petrol bombs, large boulders and any other object which can kill. Do we teach them that it won't work? No! And yes, they do have weapons, many dangerous weapons that our IDF have been discovering.
This is not a new phenomenon. Arabs raged and killed in 1929, in what we call the Hebron Massacre. They murdered Jews, burned homes and synagogues, and went so far as to murder a pharmacist who always treated them with respect. And if that was not enough, they grabbed the pharmacist’s pregnant daughter and cut open her stomach while she was still alive, killing both mother and child. They also raged through Hebron in 1936, slaughtering Jews. We can ask: WHY? What did the Arabs want? They wanted Hebron free of Jews. They want the same thing they want now.
The same year as the Hebron Massacre, their rage brought them to Safed and Jaffa where Arabs killed Jews without mercy. They raged over access to the Western Wall in Jerusalem before the State of Israel was born. On August 2, 1929, Jews were badly beaten at the Wall because of Arab rage. On August 10, while leaving the mosque, Arabs marched passed the Wall shouting their famous shout before killing Jews: "Allah Ahbkar!" Thousands streamed into Jerusalem with long sticks that had sharp nails protruding from them. They attacked Jews in every neighborhood in Jerusalem and killed without mercy.
I mention just a few cases of rage which will give the reader an idea about how Arabs behaved before our State of Israel was born.
Then the State of Israel was born, and we were attacked from outside and inside by Arab rage that wanted Jewish land and Jews out of Israel. Israel fought many wars because of Arab rage. There were many displays of rage, in the form of Intifadas, and on Yom Kippur, Oct. 12, 2016, Arabs raged in eastern Jerusalem.
They rage about security checkpoints. They rage when a soldiers kills their terrorists.
This past Erev Shabbat (Friday eve), a terrorist entered a home where Jews were celebrating the birth of a baby boy, and started to kill. The mother who just gave birth ran to hide with her five children in an upstairs bedroom, and the terrorist killed her husband and in-laws.
Today, the rage is about the Temple Mount and the metal detectors - and guess what? The government is taking down the metal detectors. The Arabs won! Tomorrow it will be about Jews on the Temple Mount. After that, it will be Jews praying at the Western Wall. Then the Cave of Patriarchs, and on it will go. Arabs want now what they wanted from the beginning of the State of Israel. ALL of Israel, free of ALL Jews. Ask them and they will tell you. And when they do, believe them. They mean it.
Guess what? Rages and killing Jews won! Arabs rage, riot, and kill, and they are taught that in the end they will get what they want. Now is the Jordanian Waqf happy? No! Now, it wants Arabs to pass through without any inspection. As, I wrote, it never ends with our enemies’ demands. Pressure from the world, especially the U.S., puts fear in this government's heart. This fear will G-d forbid have more Jews killed, and causes a Chillul Hashem (shames the G-d of Israel). Where will this end? What else will be given?
It is time to say: No more!
